Canadian rock act Nickelback are returning to New Zealand.

The How You Remind Me singers will perform in Auckland's Vector Arena on November 30, their first New Zealand visit in three years.

That's just several weeks after fellow rockers The Black Keys perform in the same venue, who started a war of words by telling Rolling Stone rock and roll was dying because "people became okay with Nickelback being the biggest band in the world, so they became okay with the idea that the biggest rock band in the world is always going to be shit".

They later apologised for making the remarks.


Nickelback will be performing in support of last year's album Here And Now, their seventh and most successful record yet.

Tickets for the show go on sale on August 17 at 9am. Fan club members can purchase tickets earlier, from August 15, here.

My Ticketmaster members can access tickets from August 16.
