In news that will delight fans of grunge-lite stadium rock, but upset those donated for them to never play London again, Nickelback have announced details of 2015 winter arena tour. Full dates and ticket details are below. 

The band will be hitting the UK in November 2015 for a string of eight arena shows - including a stop at Wembley Arena. 

Nickelback's full 2015 UK tour dates are below. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 5 December. For tickets and more information, visit here

The news comes after a kickstarter campaign, which aimed to raise enough money to ban Nickelback from performing in London, hit the headlines earlier this year. Craig Mandell is hoping to raise $1000 (£626) to ban the divisive band from playing in the city, calling the project 'Don't let Nickel-back'.

According to the Kickstarter page, which has currently received $339 of funding, Mandell plans on adding backers' names to a strongly worded email to be sent to the band's management, with the severity of the message dependent on how many people fund the project.

The campaign's description read: "We are attempting to ensure that Canadian 'rockers' Nickelback do not come to London, England to play a gig. With your help, we can ensure that the band do not schedule any gigs here, do not attempt to come here - nor even phone here."

Frontman Chad Kroeger responded: "I love it. More controversy that surrounds either myself, my personal life, the band, whatever - I think it's hilarious."

He added: "All these critics, they're just tireless. They keep ragging on the band. If they had stopped writing all this stuff about us, there would be no controversy left in the band and we probably would have died out years ago. They don't know that they're still responsible for us being around today."
