LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Nickelback have announced dates for their upcoming North American tour in support of their new album ‘Dark Horse,’ released on Roadrunner Records November 18th. The Live Nation produced tour kicks off on February 25th in Nashville, TN, and hits major arenas in over 30 cities across the continent. Seether and Saving Abel have signed on as support acts. Nickelback’s tours have grossed in excess of $100 million and have sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. ‘Dark Horse’ is Nickelback's first release since All The Right Reasons, in 2005. In support of the album, the band has recently appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The American Music Awards. Critics and fans alike are praising ‘Dark Horse.’ The New York Times raved, "Nickelback … has been responsible for some of the heaviest pop hits of this decade and more notably, it has almost single handedly preserved the idea of the arena-rock ballad." Entertainment Weekly declared, "The only sure thing in the music business in 2008."

The first single, "Gotta Be Somebody," is topping the charts with impressive numbers: Top 5 Rock, Top 10 Modern, Top 5 Hot A/C and Top 15 at Pop. At press time, the track has an estimated audience of over 45 million.
