Kroeger’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.

Grammy® Award-winning family trio, The Band Perry has achieved both massive mainstream success and gained major critical acclaim since delivering their platinum self-titled debut, making them one of the most dynamic acts in music today.  Introducing the sibling trio as a powerful new force on the Country scene, 2010’s The Band Perry offered up five hit singles, including the sextuple-platinum chart-topper “If I Die Young” and other platinum hits – the #1 “All Your Life” and “You Lie” – as well as “Hip to My Heart” and the gold-certified single “Postcard from Paris.”  The video for “If I Die Young” recently became Vevo-certified for reaching 100 million plays.

On the band’s gold-certified second album Pioneer, frontwoman Kimberly Perry and her younger brothers Reid and Neil delved deeper into an edgy, Rock-and-Roll-inspired sound while staying true to their southern roots.  Featuring the platinum #1 singles “Better Dig Two” and “DONE.” (plus smash hits “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely” and “Chainsaw”), Pioneer found The Band Perry widening their appeal and continuing to showcase their breathtaking three-part harmonies.  The group kicked off their first headline tour – the We Are Pioneers World Tour – in late 2013 and quickly established themselves as a global powerhouse, playing hundreds of venues from Seattle to Sweden.

In late 2014, The Band Perry released a spirited rendition of Country legend Glen Campbell’s “Gentle On My Mind,” which also appears on the soundtrack for the James Keach-directed documentary, Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me.   In February 2015, the band won the Grammy® Award for “Best Country Duo/Group Performance” for this song.  They have earned multiple awards from the likes of The Country Music Association; CMT Music Awards; The American Country Awards; and The Academy of Country Music. They have also received multiple nominations from the American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards, Teen Choice Awards and The American Country Countdown Awards.
