Canadian rock act Nickelback has slated an extensive tour of its homeland in support of its latest album, "The Long Road." The 22-date trek will kick off Jan. 19 in Kelowna, British Columbia, and wrap Feb. 23 in Quebec City. Three Days Grace will open throughout the tour's entirety, while select dates will also feature Staind, Trapt, the Trews and Thornley.
Beforehand, Nickelback will kick off a European tour Dec. 3 in Milan. That outing will wind down Dec. 17 in Frederiksberg, Denmark, after which the band will take a break for the holidays.
Released Sept. 23 by Roadrunner, "The Long Road" quickly emerged after the end of the band's touring regimen in support of 2001's "Silver Side Up."
"We made the decision to go into the studio right away, as soon as we got off the 'Silver Side Up' tour, because everything just changes so fast in the industry these days," drummer Ryan Vikedal told Billboard.com last month. "New bands are coming out constantly, so it was kind of important for us to continue the momentum."
"The Long Road" debuted at No. 6 on The Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the magazine's Top Canadian Albums tally. The set has sold 665,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. Album track "Someday" reached No. 2 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, No. 4 on the Modern Rock Tracks tally and No. 22 on the Hot 100. New single "Figured You Out" is No. 22 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks list.
