Nickelback announce The Hits 2013 UK arena tour
Award-winning, chart-topping Canadians return to celebrate their career. Tickets on sale now
What goes around comes around and it's the turn of the '90s, a decade that gave us grunge, jungle, industrial, drum and bass, Brit-pop and the first wave of modern TV talent-shows. Whilst that last fact might send a chill-wind through most sane people's psyche these days (the ruddy shows are still on, albeit with new names, studios and backers), rock acts from the era have soldiered on regardless.
Once dance-music had started to slip from the airwaves and the student population found its inner headbanger, particularly with grunge, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers et al, more and more acts piled in with more and more variations on a theme. Perhaps one of the most successful of these has been Nickelback who finally got their recognized sound together towards the end of the decade, after a few years plugging away to little or no avail. Taking musical elements from those aforementioned million-sellers and bevelling the rough edges to create a polished but heavy rock sound, turned out to be a stroke of lucrative genius.
By the turn of the century, the band had signed a worldwide deal, issued its debut-album and experienced the sort of success normally reserved for vacuous pop-stars. The third album "Silver Side Up" hit number one in five territories, with follow-ups such as "The Long Road", "All The Right Reasons" and 2011's "Here and Now" all achieving similar results.
Nickelback will return to the UK in the autumn for a string of shows simply called The Hits Tour. You'll know what to expect - "How You Remind Me", "Someday" and "Rockstar" are likely to appear, as well as choice cuts from their catalogue. No doubt an accompanying album will also appear.
The band's tour starts with Liverpool on 23rd November, followed by London, Glasgow and finally the new Leeds Arena on the 27th. Tickets on sale now, priced from £37.
