Nickelback and Bush head to the Carolinas

Nickelback announced two upcoming summer Carolinas concerts today. The Canadian chart toppers will extend its upcoming Spring and summer tour, which kicks off in April, to include dates at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Charlotte July 27 and Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion in Raleigh on July 30.

British rock band Bush, who had a slew of hits in the `90s, will open the shows. Still led by Gavin Rossdale, Bush returned last September with a new album "The Sea of Memories" - it's first in a decade. Rossdale and original drummer Robin Goodridge are joined by guitarist Chris Traynor (who toured on Bush's "Golden State" tour) and bassist Corey Britz. Former members bassist Dave Parsons and guitarist Nigel Pulsford left the band in 2002 and declined Rossdale's invitation to return for it's recent relaunch.

Nickelback promises a set of hits pulled from its seven albums. Tickets for the shows go on sale Friday, March 16 at 10 a.m. at www.ticketmaster.com and www.livenation.com. Presales open to fan club members March 9 and to Citi cardholders March 12. For more information on the latter visit www.citprivatepass.com

  3. Nickelback are the poster children for mass produced, mainstream drivel.

  4. When's the Bush show? This article with the double Nickleback photos is very confusing. Is the bottom paragraph supposed to say Bush instead?

  6. In response to Anonymous 7:21 PM: Both bands are on the same bill. Sorry about the two photos. Didn't look like one of them uploaded the first time.

  7. Nickelback knows how to play the game. They bring good openers so they can get your money because they know no one wants to see them. Bush puts on an amazing show!

  10. People that get their panties in a wad over Nickelback are always good for a laugh. People buy Nickelback's music because they LIKE it...unlike whatever thrash/punk/coffee house drivel it is you're listening to. Lighten up a little and put down the Red Bull. You're not impressing anybody over your musical snobbery, except the other guys (it's always guys lol) whining about the horrors of Nickelback.

  11. I am not a fan, but I want to know why Charlotteans are full of so much? Courtney some of these comments are despicable. After the events of last weekend, these comments don't surprise me.

  12. This is great, except the music sucks. I guess if you look all cool, people will buy your tripe.

  13. Purveyors of generic sounding 'alternative' music packaged for the throngs of listeners who just don't know any better. . . CHECK PLEASE!
