Nickelback have axed their world tour.
The 'How U Remind Me' hitmakers have cancelled all of their remaining 2015 tour dates dates - which were due to begin on September 30 - so frontman Chad Kroeger can recover from surgery on his voice box, having already pulled out of the North American leg of the tour earlier this year.
In a statement on their website, they wrote: ''Nickelback is forced to cancel all remaining dates for the 2015 No Fixed Address Tour due to an extended period of vocal rest ordered for lead singer Chad Kroeger. Kroeger, who was diagnosed with an intracordal cyst on his voice box in June, recently underwent surgery and must remain on vocal rest as ordered by doctors for the next six to nine months in order to fully recuperate.
''Kroeger will require an extended period of recovery in order to heal completely.''
The rockers released their eighth studio album 'No Fixed Address' last November and had been scheduled to perform 34 tour dates throughout Europe between September and December.
In the statement, the band added they hope to return to the stage soon, despite the fact they have made no plans to reschedule the dates, with refunds available to fans who had tickets to the shows.
They wrote: ''Most of all, we are sorry to miss our fans out on the road this fall, but Chad's health, healing and full recovery are what is most important right now. With the proper amount of time, we hope to have him back stronger and better than ever before. We thank everyone for their support and understanding during this time and look forward to getting back out on the road and playing music for everyone again real soon.''
