Nickelback Cancels Europe Tour, Chad Kroeger Needs 'Extended Period of Vocal Rest'

Michael Muller


Nickelback has canceled the final chunk of its No Fixed Address World Tour to allow its frontman Chad Kroeger time to recover from surgery to his vocal cords. 

According to a statement published on the Canadian rock band’s Website, Kroeger needs an “extended period of vocal rest,” meaning the act will scrap more than 30 European shows.

“Most of all, we are sorry to miss our fans out on the road this fall, but Chad’s health, healing and full recovery are what is most important right now," the statement reads. "With the proper amount of time, we hope to have him back stronger and better than ever before. We thank everyone for their support and understanding during this time and look forward to getting back out on the road and playing music for everyone again real soon.” 

The band has now nixed a busy European itinerary which was due to start Sept. 30 at Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland and run through to a show Dec. 7 at Minsk Arena, Belarus.

Nickelback Debuts At No. 1 on Top Rock Albums With 'No Fixed Address'

Its been a tough year health-wise for Kroeger and the band. Nickelback had already wiped out the North America leg of their world tour earlier this summer when its frontman underwent surgery for a cyst on his vocal cords. Kroeger was expected to be fit for Europe. He's clearly not and Nickelback's Mike Kroeger has shared an update in which he says his brother and bandmate’s surgery “was a success, everything is cool, he’s going to recover.” Nickelback has yet to update on whether those tour dates will be rescheduled.
