Nickelback cancel Sheffield Arena gig date

Multi-platinum selling rock band Nickelback is forced to cancel all remaining dates for the 2015 No Fixed Address Tour due to an extended period of vocal rest ordered for lead singer Chad Kroeger.

Kroeger, who was diagnosed with an intracordal cyst on his voice box in June, recently underwent surgery and must remain on vocal rest as ordered by doctors for the next six to nine months in order to fully recuperate.

Nickelback cancelled the second leg of the 2015 North American tour in June when doctor’s first diagnosed Kroeger with an operable cyst on his vocal cords. They were scheduled to resume the European leg of the tour in September including a date at Sheffield Arena on Friday, November 13, but while the medical team is pleased with the results of the surgery, it was revealed that Kroeger will require an extended period of recovery in order to heal completely.

“Most of all, we are sorry to miss our fans out on the road this fall, but Chad’s health, healing and full recovery are what is most important right now. With the proper amount of time, we hope to have him back stronger and better than ever before. We thank everyone for their support and understanding during this time and look forward to getting back out on the road and playing music for everyone again real soon.”

Ticket refunds will be available at the point of purchase. Customers who booked through the Sheffield Arena Box Office can call 0114 256 56 56 if they require any information on the refund procedure.
