Grammy-nominated, mega-platinum rock powerhouse Nickelback, has announced the 2010 North American leg of their "Dark Horse World Tour", a Live Nation produced event. The tour will feature special guests Breaking Benjamin and Shinedown as the opening acts with additional dates still to be announced. The band played to sold out crowds around the world during the recent summer and fall portion of their tour.

Additional information on the tour, ticket on-sales, fan club membership and VIP packages is available at Nickelback.com and LiveNation.com.

The latest single from Dark Horse, "Never Gonna Be Alone", is already top 10 at Hot A/C and moving up quickly at Top 40. The video for "Never Gonna Be Alone" was added into heavy rotation at Much Music, Much More Music and Much Loud.

Nickelback is one of the biggest rock bands in the world, with over 35 million albums sold. The band's latest album, Dark Horse, produced by the legendary Mutt Lange, debuted at No. 1 in Canada on the Canadian SoundScan Top 200 Albums Chart and at number two on the Billboard Top 200 Chart and has remained on the Top 200 for 50 weeks. Nickelback is currently nominated for a 2010 Grammy Award in the Best Hard Rock Performance category for "Burn It To The Ground."

Nickelback has enjoyed unprecedented success with All The Right Reasons, which has been RIAA certified 8X platinum. The six singles from the album totaled more than 12 million downloads and six million ringtones. All proceeds of digital single and video sales for "If Everyone Cared" between Feb. 1 and July 31, 2007 were donated to charity, equally distributed between Amnesty International and International Childrens' Awareness Canada. Each of the five videos from All The Right Reasons has reached #1 on Much Music and Much More Music's playlists: "Photograph," "Savin' Me," "Far Away," "If Everyone Cared" and "Rockstar." Nickelback has received 12 Juno Awards, multiple Much Music Video Awards (including three last June), and been awarded a World Music Award for "World's Best Rock Group," a Billboard Touring Award for "Breakthrough Artist," an American Music Award for "Favorite Pop/Rock Album" and a People's Choice Award for "Best Rock Group."
