Multi-platinum rock band Nickelback is teaming up with Clear Channel and Live Nation Entertainment to offer one lucky fan a chance to party like a rock star in Las Vegas this summer. Beginning today, fans will get the chance to win a trip for six to board a private jet to Las Vegas where they will get VIP tickets to see Nickelback perform on tour June 16, 2012 at the MGM Garden Arena. The lucky winner and guests will have after party access and accommodations - the winner will enjoy a suite and each of the five guests will receive a king room at the MGM Grand. Additionally, the winner will receive $5,000 cash to play “Blackjack With Nickelback.”
“We can't wait to have one of our amazing fans plus five lucky friends win the opportunity to join us in one of the wildest cities in the world,” said Nickelback front man Chad Kroeger. "Every show is a party with our fans but the Las Vegas shows are always some of the most memorable (at least for that night). So get your game face on ‘cause we're going to play blackjack in Sin City.”
The “Blackjack With Nickelback” contest will run nationwide across Clear Channel rock radio stations beginning April 9 and ending May 18, 2012. Fans can listen to these stations each weekday for the cue to call-in for a chance to qualify to win. The grand prize winner will be announced May 21, 2012.
"We love connecting our listeners with the artists they're passionate about," said Tom Poleman, President of National Programming Platforms for Clear Channel Media and Entertainment. "Few bands can party like Nickelback, and this Ultimate Experience is destined to be legendary."
Fans can also listen to win online at the stations’ websites, as well as on iHeartRadio.com and the iHeartRadio mobile app, Clear Channel’s industry-leading digital radio service.
Nickelback Kicks Off North American Here And Now Tour April 10, 2012
Nickelback, known around the world for their powerful and spectacular live performances, embarks on their first North American tour in two years, stopping in 49 cities across North America. The band will draw from their seven-album arsenal to perform a show of hits and chart-topping singles. Special guests Bush, Seether and My Darkest Days will open (as listed below). Nickelback’s North American tour is produced by Live Nation.
With the new tour, Nickelback will perform songs from the recently released seventh studio album, Here And Now, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 following its November 21, 2011 release on Roadrunner Records. Propelling Here And Now into the #2 spot were the two hit singles “When We Stand Together” and "Bottoms Up.” Nickelback recently premiered two new music videos for their current singles “Lullaby” and “This Means War.” Here And Now is the biggest international release in Nickelback’s history, including a No. 1 debut in Canada on Universal Music Canada.
Nickelback has achieved a prestigious place in music history, having sold nearly 50 million worldwide. Since their 2001 breakthrough hit song “How You Remind Me,” Nickelback has sent more than 20 singles rocketing onto various Billboard charts. In 2009, Billboard named Nickelback “Top Group of the Decade.” Their now-classic album All the Right Reasons ensured Nickelback an indelible place in rock history: it spent a staggering 112 consecutive weeks in the Top 30 of the Billboard Top 200, was certified eight-times platinum in the U.S. with more than 11 million copies sold worldwide, and topped the charts in four countries. All the Right Reasons spun off seven multi-format singles and made Nickelback the first band in Nielsen BDS history to send five singles onto the CHR charts.
