Interview with Mike Kroger (Nickelback)

Back in October Nickelback announced their return to Australian soil in the new year. Recently Casper sat down with bassist MIKE KROGER about the new album, Vinnie Paul & Dimebag and what to expect on their return with BAD WOLVES.

Multi-platinum, chart-topping rock band, NICKELBACK, has announced their massive Feed The Machine Tour will land in Australia this summer, bringing their biggest production yet for three shows only.

Touring in support of their ARIA #3 album, FeedThe Machine (out now through BMG), these will be Nickelback’s first Australian shows since May 2015. The multi-platinum-selling powerhouse will hit the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on February 13, Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena on February 15 and Melbourne’s Laver Arena on February 16 – with very special guests Bad Wolves.

Nickelback return to Australia with their  biggest and loudest production yet, a high octane show of tracks from the band’s enduring nine-album body of work such as all-time classics, ‘How You Remind Me’, ‘Far Away’, ‘Burn It To The Ground’, ‘Gotta Be Somebody’ and more recent hits from their current album, Feed The Machine, such as ‘Song On Fire’ and ‘Must Be Nice’.

A testament to their everlasting energy, Nickelback boasts twelve consecutive sold-out international tours, performing to more than eight million diehard fans.

The international recording superstars have amassed 50-million-plus units sold worldwide, more than 23 chart-topping singles and an online audience exceeding21 million, with a staggering 1.5 billion YouTube views and 1.4 billion Spotify streams. All the right reasons, which sold in excess of 10 million in the US alone, has been recently awarded the RIAA Diamond sales certification, putting them on an elite shortlist of artists to ever accomplish this.

Tickets for all three shows go on general sale 9 am (local time) Thursday, October 11, including VIP Experiences.
