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 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.”

Watch Deadpool Defend Nickelback In New “Once Upon A Deadpool” Clip

You can check that out below along with some responses from the band. “Once Upon A Deadpool” will hit theaters on December 12.

Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, Steve Vai, Etc. To Guest On Devin Townsend’s New Album “Empath”

Devin Townsend has revealed that Chad Kroeger (Nickelback), Steve Vai, Anneke Van Giersbergen, and Che Dorval (Casualties of Cool) have all guested on his new album “Empath.” Previously announced guests include: Elliot Desgagnés (Beneath The Massacre), Mike Keneally (Dethklok, etc.), Morgan Ågren (Kaipa), Sam “Samus” Paulicelli (Decrepit Birth), etc. The album is expected to be released in March.

Townsend said the following in a series of tweets:

“No sleep tonight. I’ve got the final stages of this year long process rolling through my mind. Almost done…another 3.5 weeks and this stage of it (the album) will be wrapped up.

Listened to the roughs of Empath on the flight and it had me teared up the whole way. I haven’t had this visceral a reaction to the work in many years. To think It all stemmed from taking a vacation! my god, what an intense period this has been. I’ll remember this past two years.

Thanks to some further guests, Anneke Van Giersbergen, Che Dorval, Chad Kroeger, Mike Keneally, Steve Vai, Lords Of The sound orchestra… it’s been total catharsis and tied intrinsically to the process of working through this transformation. It’s a lovely, complicated, weird one

Some people will totally love it, a fair amount will take awhile to have it sink in, some won’t get it at all, some will definitely prefer the bonus disk or the previous work, but fuck me, did I ever need to get this out of my system. It’s like 12 years of vomit at once…

I had a choice to either go commercial or uncompromised on this. Thanks to Garth Richardson and Chad for convincing me to not compromise. It’s a hard choice as you get older because the temptation to play it safe is huge for the sake of family and security.

Exhausting… pure catharsis. It was about middle age, realization, fear, death, moderation, meditation, and overcoming the internal dialogues. I guess it was ultimately about getting it right after all these years, then kind of realizing that you just have to let it all go…

Music is just an expression of gratitude I think. Ultimately it’s just another album in a long line of albums, some will like it, some won’t. But it appears as if it will be accurate, and that’s a huge huge relief.

Three drummers, two bassists, orchestras, choirs, ducks, cats, goats, birds, whales… and I didn’t sabotage this one, for once…

Have to be at the studio in 3 hours after a sleepless night. Sweet. Luckily it’s not an immensely complicated mix 🙄

There’s a reoccurring theme on this project that seems to have appeared, and that seems to be one of ‘anti-suicide’”
