Nickelback: Few bands have appealed to such a wide audience -- and put on as exciting a tour date -- as Canadian rockers, Nickelback. Led by frontman Chad Kroeger, Nickelback was the 11th highest selling band of the 2000s and, to date, have sold over 35 million albums worldwide. While Nickelback has experienced their share of criticism from both audiences and critics, the group continues to button the lips of naysayers with hit records and high-attendance concert dates. Probably best known for their singles "Leader of Men," "Breathe," and "How You Remind Me", Nickelback continues to produce hit records year after year, with fans anxiously anticipating a new as-yet-untitled album. While recording has hampered tour dates in 2011, fans can expect to see quite a bit of Nickelback when recording is finished.

The origins of Nickelback can be traced to brothers Chad, Mike, and Brandon (who was permanently replaced by Daniel Adair in 2005) Kroeger. In 1995, the trio — along with Ryan Peake -- formed a band in Vancouver, taking their name from Chad's task of giving change while working at Starbucks. The next year, Nickelback released their first major label album, The State, which produced three successful singles that took the record to #3 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. The group reached the next plateau of success with their third album, Silver Side Up, in 2001, which took Nickelback from supporting act to headliner on tour dates. The three lead singles, "How You Remind Me," "Too Bad," and "Never Again," all shot to the top of the singles charts. The album went on to sell over ten million copies and was boosted by Chad Kroeger's recording of "Hero" as the theme for the Spider-Man movie.

Nickelback found their success on a roll with the release of The Long Road in 2003. The album debuted at the #6 spot on the Billboard 200 and eventually went double platinum. While their next album, All the Right Reasons, was received negatively by some critics, fans loved the album and it reached #1 on the Billboard 200. The album's five singles -- "Photograph," "Savin' Me," "Rockstar," "If Everyone Cared," and "Far Away" -- all made it to the top twenty spots on the Hot 100 singles. All the Right Reasons sold over 7 million copies and spent over a hundred weeks in the top ten of the Billboard charts. Nickelback's 2008 album, Dark Horse, achieved the similar success that the band had experienced throughout their career. While the lyrical content of the album featured racier, more adult-themed tracks, fans loved it and showed their support through record sales and ticket sales on tour dates.

While fans hoping for upcoming concert dates will have to remain patient, they won't have to wait long for an announcement on the upcoming album's release. When the release of singles from the album finally comes, fans around the world can expect the release of tour dates in 2011 or 2012.

Bush: Bush brought the grunge world to its knees when they released their debut alternative album Sixteen Stone in 1994. Three more albums, hundreds of tour dates and concerts, and only seven years later Bush announced an indefinite hiatus. The members started side projects and families but after ten years they are ready to reunite! Bush is in the studio finishing their first album in nearly a decade and have scheduled tour dates. Don't miss a date on the Bush concert schedule 2011; Use Eventful as your source for Bush tour dates and concert tour information.

Inspired by Pearl Jam and Nirvana, Bush came to embody British alternative rock. Fronted by Gavin Rossdale, the band was signed to a deal with Hollywood Records in 1993 at the peak of American grunge music's popularity. They recorded their debut album soon after and released the single "Everything Zen". With the help of LA based radio station, KROQ, the single went into heavy rotation and gave Bush a hit single. They released their worldwide smash debut, Sixteen Stone, at the tail end of 1994 and it became a slow-burning success. The album scored Bush a total of five top #5 US Modern Rock hit singles on the Billboard charts and was eventually certified six times platinum in the US. Bush tour dates were scheduled on a headlining tour with label-mates and future superstars - No Doubt.

Bush was quick to record their follow-up and released their sophomore set, Razorblade Suitcase, in 1996. The album featured the lead single "Swallowed" which spent seven weeks at #1 on the Modern Rock tracks survey. The album also featured the hit track "Greedy Fly" and featured production by grunge impresario, Steve Albini. The album was also a multi-Platinum success and Bush toured in support of the album. Bush tour dates were scheduled as the headlining act on KROQ's Almost Acoustic Christmas in 1996, an event where they have performed four times. Bush then released a remix album featuring a techno infused remake of the single "Mouth", which was featured in the film American Werewolf in Paris.

After an extensive Bush concert schedule, Rossdale retreated to Dublin where he worked on material for the band's upcoming album The Science of Things. Following the massive success of Bush, a label war between indie imprint Trauma Records and major label Interscope over who owned the rights to Bush's new material ensued. After a resolution, the electronica infused disc was released and featured the modern rock hit "The Chemicals Between Us". The album was certified Platinum and Bush tour dates were scheduled with international concert performances. Bush released one more album, Golden State, and announced a breakup in 2002. Bush toured in support of the album, but couldn't attain previous record sales. A Best Of was released in 2005 followed by a live disc, Zen X Four, and the band was officially over.

Gavin Rossdale went solo and focused on his relationship with megastar Gwen Stefani before releasing his own solo acoustic material. Other bandmates focused on side projects, but none matched the chemistry of Bush, nor the success. By mid-2010, a Bush reunion was announced and a new album Everything Always New was confirmed for release in 2011. Bush is currently in the studio putting the final touches on their first album in a decade. While the release date is pending, Bush tour dates are scheduled throughout the US periodically. Bush remains as one of the few remaining grunge/alt acts of the '90s and is certainly one of the most successful. Don't miss a date on the Bush concert schedule 2011.
