Nickelback Announce 2019 Australian Tour

Back in 2012, a petition was launched to stop Nickelback from touring Australia that made international headlines.

But it looks like the controversial rock band are back with a vengeance, as it has been announced they will perform several concerts Down Under in February 2019.

The arrival of Nickelback’s Feed The Machine World Tour will mark the first time the group has toured the country in seven years.

Don't remind them! Nickelback have announced their upcoming Australian tour... six years after a petition unsuccessfully tried to stop the band from entering the country. Pictured (left to right): Band members Chad Kroeger, Ryan Peake, Daniel Adair and Mike Kroeger

Nickelback, fronted by Chad Kroeger, have sold over 50 million records worldwide yet are widely considered one of the worst bands of all-time.

Despite being critically panned, however, they have a loyal fanbase worldwide.

Their 2012 Australian tour was a sell-out, despite thousands of music fans petitioning to have their visas denied.

A petition uploaded to Change.org claimed that Australia had enough poisonous things without people having to worry about Nickelback.

The tour will also mark the first time the band has played to Australian crowds since singer Chad’s split with former wife Avril Lavigne.

The announcement comes just days after Chad tweeted in support of Avril’s new single Head Above Water, which focuses on her battle with Lyme disease.

His support for his ex-spouse was met with praise and perhaps earned Nickelback some support from Avril’s pop audience.

Nickelback will visit Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne during their Australian tour.

Tickets are scheduled to go on sale on Thursday 11 October.
