The Nickelback soon became the farmers’ rock hall — in their native Canada, at least. The band will be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame on March 13, 2023.
The concert will take place as part of the 2023 Juno Awards (the Canadian equivalent of the Grammys) in Edmonton (in the province of Alberta, the band’s home). Nickelback will also perform at the event, which will mark the sixth time they’ve rocked the Junos.
“Coming home to Alberta, where it all began for us, is truly a full circle, defining moment for the band,” said frontman Chad Kroeger. “We take great pride in our Canadian roots and are very humbled by this honor.”
Over the years, Nickelback has received 12 awards at the Juno Awards. Globally, the band’s songs have been streamed over 10 billion times.
Other artists who have been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) over the years include Alanis Morissette, RUSH, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Shania Twain, and more.
The Canadian Physical Music Hall of Fame is housed within the National Music Center housed within Calgary’s Bell Studio. A Nickelback tribute show will open March 9th.
The announcement of the big tribute comes just days before Nickelback is due to release their new album, Get Rollin’which arrives on Friday (November 18). The LP was preceded by the singles “San Quentin” and “Those Days”.
