Nickelback doesn’t take themselves as seriously as you might expect.
In a video promoting their upcoming “Get Rollin’ Tour,” the Canadian rockers go behind the scenes to reveal they’re the deep voices behind the epic tour announcement.
“Was that good?” lead singer Chad Kroeger asks his bandmates.
And with that, the group, that has been the butt of music snob’s jokes and memes for years, shows they have a smirking sense of humor too.
Will they bring that tongue in cheek attitude on the road with them?
We can’t say for certain but it is likely that they’ll bring their massive hits like “How You Remind Me,” “Photograph,” “Rockstar,” “Burn It To The Ground” and “Someday” as well as tracks from their recently released 10th studio album “Get Rollin’” to the stage at each and every show.
That includes an Aug. 30 concert at Elmont’s UBS Arena and a pit stop at the annual Tailgates and Tallboys Music Festival in Bloomington, IL from June 14-17.
Best of all, tickets for all concerts can be secured as early as today.
Although inventory isn’t available on Ticketmaster until Friday, Jan. 27, fans who want to ensure they have tickets ahead of time can purchase on sites like Vivid Seats before seats are officially on sale.
Vivid Seats is a secondary market ticketing platform, and prices may be higher or lower than face value, depending on demand.
They have a 100% buyer guarantee that states your transaction will be safe and secure and will be delivered before the event.

Nickelback opening act
Shows won’t start with the headliners taking the stage on this tour.
No, country rockers Brantley Gilbert and Josh Ross will serve as special guests at each and every concert.
Here’s a quick primer on each of the support acts you’ll see if you arrive on time.
Brantley Gilbert, a Jefferson, GA native, is known for his slick country sound. It’s very possible you’ve already seen him on tour before too. Over the past decade, he’s opened for Kid Rock, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson and Luke Combs. Want to check out his music? We recommend his catchy singalong “Bottoms Up” that will have you humming along in no time.
Josh Ross wears his heart on his sleeve. The Ontario-based singer-songwriter belts soaring piano ballads that straddle the line between country and indie pop. For a taste of his versatility, start with Ross’ lyrical “First Taste of Gone” and then give the pulsing “On A Different Night” a try.
Nickelback new music
Things get heavy on Nickelback’s most recent record, “Get Rollin’.”
Right off the bat, it sounds as if the group has pivoted to full-on hard rock with their latest offering as evidenced by the almost metal opening track “San Quentin.”
On track two, Nickelback maintains that energy and brings the guitar solos, menacing vocals and thumping drums to the catchy “Skinny Little Missy.”
From there, the rockers return to their pop radio friendly roots with the friendlier ditty “Those Days” and “High Time.”
