Nickelback announces North American tour

January 11, 2012 | 11:41 am

Nickelback is going out on its first North American arena tour in nearly two years, the Canadian rockers announced Wednesday.

The 39-date Live Nation-produced trek, which the band promises will be its "biggest, baddest, most over-the-top show yet,"  launches April 10 in Moline, Ill. at the I Wireless Center. Nickelback will be making a stop in L.A. on June 15 at Staples Center before wrapping its tour later that month.

Bush, Seether and My Darkest Days have been tapped to open.

Nickelback’s latest album, “Here And Now,” debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 in November.

Tickets go on sale Jan. 20 through Ticketmaster and LiveNation, with a fan club pre-sale set for Friday. More information, including the full tour itinerary, can be found on the band's website.
