Nickelback has opened up about why they decided to go on tour with country superstar Brantley Gilbert. Chad Kroeger told us, “There was a lot of bribery involved (laughs). To us, in our camp, we kept getting the same handful of artists and you can go back to the same well and give the same exact show that you've been doing for the last 20 years. We wanted to try something a little different. We wanted to dip our toe in a slightly different pond and give the fans an entirely different show.”
Chad continued, “And then, the idea started . . . and then it was like 'What about Brantley Gilbert?' He's a little country, he's a little rock. He's kinda both. Now we'retalking about opening up to entirely different section of people that might not come to see you play. The next thing you know im sitting here in Nashville, weve got Daniel, we've got brantley and this thing's happening!”
The Get Rollin’ Tour will kick off on Monday, June 12th, in Quebec City, QC, and will wrap on August 30th in Belmont Park, NY.
