Nickelback cancel UK tour dates after Chad Kroeger’s vocal cord surgery

Singer put on 'extended rest', prompting cancellation of outstanding 'No Fixed Address' tour dates

Nickleback have cancelled the remainder of their ‘No Fixed Address’ tour, after lead singer Chad Kroeger revealed he’ll need a more extended period of rest following his recent vocal cord surgery.

The cancellation includes eight planned UK dates for November, as well as dozens of others throughout Europe between September and December of this year.

The band revealed the news through their website, releasing the following statement:


“Kroeger was diagnosed with an intracordal cyst on his voice box in June, recently underwent surgery and must remain on vocal rest as ordered by doctors for the next six to nine months in order to fully recuperate. The medical team is pleased with the results of the surgery, but Kroeger will need an extended period to recover properly.”

“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.”

“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 North American dates on the same tour had been cancelled for similar reasons back in June. The UK events affected are as follows:

Sheffield Arena (November 13)
Glasgow Arena (14)
Newcastle Arena (16)
Manchester Arena (17)
Liverpool Arena (19)
Birmingham Arena (21)
Nottingham Arena (22)
Wembley Arena (24)
