After rumours all weekend, Nickelback have confirmed they are heading to Australia... and we have all the details here on take40.com!
Nickelback are arguably one of the biggest popular rock bands in the world, and even though they are the band people love to hate, we know there are a lot of excited fans this morning, keen to see their idols who have not visited here for three years!
The Canadian rockers will head down under for a national tour starting in Perth on November 17, with stops in Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney before winding up in Melbourne on November 27.
They will be performing a lot of their hits and chart-topping singles drawing from each of their seven albums, and will be supported by Jackson Firebird.
No matter your opinion of Nickelback, there's no refuting that with nearly 50 million album sales to their name since their 2001 breakthrough hit How You Remind Me, they are one of the most enduring artists of the last decade.
