Nickelback Cancels The Remainder Of Their North American Tour As Chad Kroeger Prepares For Throat Surgery

Nickelback cancelled the remainder of their North American tour after Chad Kroeger was diagnosed with a cyst on his voice box that has to be surgically removed.

As the Inquisitr previously reported, “the band made the announcement on their website over the weekend, telling their fans that the North American leg of their tour would have to be cancelled. However, they said their European run would continue as planned, starting on September 30 in Helsinki, Finland, and they will return for their North American tour in 2016.”

In a lengthy statement, and an attached video, the band shared the sad news with their fans.

“Nickelback is forced to cancel all remaining dates of the second leg of the 2015 No Fixed Address North American tour due to lead vocalist Chad Kroeger being diagnosed with an operable cyst on his voice box. Chad will undergo surgery in 3 weeks following vocal rest ordered by doctors. Ticket refunds will be available at the point of purchase.”

“Nickelback cancelled shows over the weekend, hoping the additional rest and treatment would help but an unfortunate diagnosis from Chad’s doctor revealed a more serious scenario. “I am sorry I have to interrupt the party this summer and I am definitely not thrilled with the prospect of being silent for many weeks to come when I could be out there playing for our fans… I am relying on my doctor and his team to help get my voice back in good form as quickly as possible.”

“Chad’s medical team anticipates a full recovery and the No Fixed Address Tour will resume with their previously scheduled European run, in Helsinki, Finland on September 30th. Nickelback are expected to return to North America in 2016.”
