Nickelback with special guests Daughtry - Additional standing tickets just released
Friday 5th October 2012
- Doors Open:
Following the chart-topping success of their 2011 album, Here And Now, Canada’s multi-million selling rock stars Nickelback are returning to the UK in October on their European tour for the first time in 2 and a half years, returning to the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle on Friday 5th October 2012.
Part of a huge world trek, they are underlining their status as one of the planet’s most popular live acts. Covering the length of the country in just seven days, Nickelback will remind you why they are one of the biggest bands in the world and have been for over a decade.
With fans including artists as diverse as Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Timbaland and Avril Lavigne, Nickelback’s live show is always one of the hottest tickets in town.
Over their career, the band have achieved five Grammy nominations, three American Music Awards as well as 12 Juno awards and were named “Group of the Decade” by Billboard magazine in 2009. With multi-platinum hit albums and singles all over Europe and almost 45 million albums sold worldwide, it is clear that fans are thirsty for more from the Canadian foursome.
Massive hits including How You Remind Me and Rockstar join new favourites from the Roadrunner Records released Here And Now album - like When We Stand Together, the ultimate party anthem Bottoms Up and forthcoming single Lullaby - for a Nickelback show to remember. Hard rocking, with worldwide radio anthems, this is a band with a reputation for providing a party wherever they go.
As Chad says, "We can't wait to get back and play in the UK. Our shows there have always been some of the most memorable for us and it's all because of the fans.”
The band will be touring Europe, connecting with audiences old and new, rocking arenas for the masses and playing more intimate shows in countries where they make a long awaited return.
No show too big, no show too small, Nickelback are hungry for more.
American rock band, Daughtry, will be supporting Nickelback on their UK tour. The multi-platinum rock band, who have been touring non-stop since the beginning of 2007 are fronted by American Idol finalist Chris Daughtry and their self-titled debut album has since gone five-times platinum. Since then the band have had four No. 1 hits, four American Music Awards, earned four Grammy nominations and sold over 7 million albums.
Daughtry’s highly anticipated third album, Break The Spell, went gold in only four weeks. It is a showcase of Chris’s powerful voice and the band’s knack for melodic hooks and massive, anthemic choruses, which is one of the reasons why this band have earned platinum status in not only the US but Canada, Singapore, South Africa and Australia, to name a few.
