Nickelback will not play DTE Aug. 1; entire tour canceled due to medical emergency

Nickelback announced today that they unfortunately have to cancel the entirety of their upcoming "No Fixed Address" tour, so that singer Chad Kroeger can undergo emergency vocal surgery to remove cysts from his vocal cords. This means that the multi-platinum selling band will not play on Saturday, August 1 at the DTE Energy Music Theatre. We've been informed that "ticket refunds will be available at the point of purchase."

From their press release: “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,” shared Chad Kroeger. “I am relying on my doctor and his team to help get my voice back in good form as quickly as possible.”
