My Chemical Romance, Slipknot, Tool, Guns N’ Roses, Etc. Received Pandemic Assistance Loans

Earlier this year, the U.S. Small Business Administration and the Treasury launched the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to give loans to businesses to help them pay their employees amid the coronavirus pandemic. According to a new report, $660 billion was given out to 600,000 companies including ones owned by Slipknot, Green Day, Tool, My Chemical Romance, Guns N’ Roses, Disturbed, Eagles, Nickelback, Papa Roach, Pearl Jam, Weezer, Cheap Trick, and more. One of the aforementioned artists, My Chemical Romance, told Rolling Stone the following about their decision to take a PPP loan:

“Like most tours that were happening this year, My Chemical Romance’s world tour was cancelled. MCR received PPP money to ensure their crew is funded in these times of uncertainty until we are able to be out on the road again. We are so grateful to these skilled, dedicated people – some of them are parents, others caretakers, still others who simply have rent to pay – and this money helps them take care of themselves and their families.”

Nickelback Cancel “All The Right Reasons” 15th Anniversary Tour

Nickelback have cancelled their “All The Right Reasons” 15th anniversary tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. The trek, which also featured Stone Temple Pilots, Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown, and Switchfoot, was supposed to kick off next month.

Nickelback commented:

“The ability to make music, tour and share memorable experiences with everyone across the world is all that we could have ever possibly imagined and hoped for throughout our career.

Over the past few months we have been in constant communication with our team, tour industry professionals, medical professionals and everyone that could help guide us collaboratively on a safe path forward. The health, safety and well-being of our amazing fans, the Artists on tour with us, our collective touring crews, venue personnel and the communities in which we perform are our number one priority.

While we all hoped for a different outcome, we regrettably cannot move forward and must cancel the All The Right Reasons Tour this summer.

So many have been affected by this and that is not something we take for granted. The right thing to do is ensure that our fans have access to refund options during these challenging times. For details regarding refund options, visit livenation.com/refund or reach out directly to your point of purchase.

We would like to send Stone Temple Pilots, Switchfoot, Tyler Bryant and The Shakedown and their respective teams our gratitude and best wishes for being incredibly patient and supportive. We hope to see you all back out on the road soon and wish you continued success!

We will keep you posted as soon as we have an idea on when we can get back out on the road and play for you again. We look forward to that day more than we could ever put into words. Thank you for your patience, understanding and continued support.

In the meantime, please stay safe and well.”

Nickelback Drummer Daniel Adair Undergoes Surgery For Radial Tunnel Syndrome

Nickelback’s Daniel Adair recently underwent surgery for radial tunnel syndrome. The drummer says he has “healed fine” and is currently working on getting his chops back.

Adair commented:

“I’ve been off the socials for a bit and thought I should give everybody an update.

Over the past several years I have been experiencing increased difficulty with control in my right hand on the drums. After seeing many teachers/specialists and physicians, one of them finally diagnosed the cause. Seems I had a pinched nerve in my forearm which caused some of my muscles not to activate, making my wrist twist in a mechanically inaccurate motion. It’s called Radial Tunnel Syndrome and he said it was pretty rare. Don’t know what the cause is, there was no pain or damage.

So luckily I got minor surgery right before the Covid outbreak happened. They just cut some muscle away and let the nerve breath again. I’ve healed fine and am basically learning how to use my right hand! It’s very exciting though, it’s amazing what one nerve can change. So, personally it’s a great time for me to be in isolation and get my chops together.

Hope everybody is well out there!”

Ryan Peake Says New Nickelback Documentary Is “Very Close To Being Released”

It looks like Nickelback are planning to release a new documentary in the near future. Guitarist Ryan Peake said the following about that:

“We teased a documentary on our tour a year and a half ago. And I won’t bore you with all the details — it is very close to being released. So please stay tuned. I would say in the next month or two, we may have something for everybody who wants to see everything Nickelback. Even if you don’t wanna see everything Nickelback, we will have it all for you. So, stay tuned. We hope you guys enjoy it.”
