NickelBlack... Label?
April 5, 2010
Getting bits of unconfirmed but entirely believeable info is great, and the following blurb (which is sure to make some SDMF'ers cry foul) was sent in to us over the weekend...

"Nickelback's Chad Kroeger was recently spotted leaving the home studio of Zakk Wylde...the legendary guitarist and Black Label Society frontman has been holed up in the "Black Label Bunker" recording the new BLS album due out this summer."

I guess that's not as bad as Ozzy teaming up with the Jonas Brothers... but I don't see BLS devotees being entirely stoked about this either.

Nickelback Announce UK Dates
September 24, 2009
Following their sold out arena tour earlier this year, which culminated in a capacity show at the O2 Arena, Roadrunner’s multi-million selling sons, Nickelback, will be bringing their pyro-laden, blockbuster of a stage show back to the UK early in 2010. A new single will be released to coincide.

Released last year, the Canadians’ current album ‘Dark Horse’ is an 11-track run-through of everything the group has excelled at before now -- fist-pumping anthems, grinding rockers, sing-along power ballads, smirking innuendo, heart-wringing romanticism, choruses that wedge themselves in your ears after just one listen and hooks so big they practically boomerang round the room. Earlier this year the band won 5 Juno Awards (the Canadian Grammys) including Group of The Year, the Fan Choice Award and Album Of The Year.

Nickelback’s
record breaking stats, facts and figures are myriad and too lengthy to list here, but to précise, they’ve shifted upwards of 40 million albums over the span of their career, racked up countless sold-out tours and tickets for just two UK shows are expected to shift extremely quickly. Don’t hang about getting yours.

The two shows line up as follows:
01/17 – Liverpool - Arena
01/19 – London - Wembley Arena

Tickets go on pre-sale at 9am today (Thursday) at www.livenation.co.uk and full sale at 9am this Friday 25th September, priced £35.00 adv regionally / £38.50 adv London.

Saving Abel To Open Nickelback Tour
December 4, 2008
Rock band Saving Abel will join Seether as openers for Nickelback on their North American tour beginning February 25th in Nashville, TN (full schedule below). Saving Abel’s largest outing to date will hit arenas in over 30 cities across the continent. Tickets go on sale beginning Dec. 5th at www.LiveNation.com.

“We’re thrilled to be opening for Nickelback. It’s crazy, a year ago we were playing small bars and clubs around Memphis and now we’re touring the country in a bus and will be playing with one of the biggest touring rock bands in arenas,” said Saving Abel frontman Jared Weeks.

Saving Abel have been on the road non-stop since the March, 2008 release of their self titled debut from Virgin Records, and have played with rock heavy weights such as Buckcherry, Avenged Sevenfold, Puddle of Mudd and Shinedown. The band has enjoyed impressive success with their chart-topping, multi-format smash debut single “Addicted,” which hit #1 at mainstream rock radio, spent 11 consecutive weeks at #2 on the active rock chart and reached #7 at alternative radio. At press time, the track is the most played song of 2008 at the active rock format. “Addicted” found a whole new life in July when it impacted Top 40 radio. The run away hit is now sitting in the top 10 at the format and is top 15 at Hot AC. While “Addicted” is topping the pop charts, Saving Abel’s second single “18 Days,” a huge rock ballad dedicated to the troops, is heating up at rock radio where it is already top 10 at active rock and top 20 at alternative radio. Videos for both tracks have witnessed major play across all video channels including MTV2, VH1, Fuse and Music Choice where “Addicted” is currently the #1 played video an their “Hit List” channel.

Saving Abel continues to reach new heights on the sales charts as well. The album spent 3 consecutive weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart before debuting on the Billboard 200 in July. It has sold over 240,000 copies to date. ”Addicted” hit #20 on the digital singles chart and is approaching platinum success with over 800,000 singles sold thus far.

Saving Abel - named after the Biblical sibling of Cain - was formed by Jared Weeks and guitarist Jason Null in 2004 in their hometown of Corinth, Mississippi. Now based in Memphis, Tennessee, the band's lineup includes guitarist Scott Bartlett, bassist Eric Taylor and drummer Blake Dixon. Combining influences of southern rock, hard rock and alternative music, the band was first heard on a 2005 EP, produced by Skidd Mills (12 Stones, Saliva, Submersed).
