Nickelback exhibit bound for National Music Centre

CALGARY — A special exhibit dedicated to Alberta rockers Nickelback is headed to Calgary's National Music Centre.

The retrospective will include instruments, memorabilia, concert footage, behind-the-scenes photos and stories from more than 20 years of rock ‘n’ roll.

It begins March 9 at the NMC, located inside Studio Bell and organized in partnership with The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.

It launches ahead of the band’s induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame at the Juno Awards in Edmonton on March 13.

The group will kick off a world tour this June in North America to support its 10th studio album, “Get Rollin’.”

"Canadian Music Hall of Fame: Nickelback" will run March 9 to February 2024.

“We’re very proud of what we’ve accomplished over the past few decades and love that our story and songs continue to impact and entertain people globally,” frontman Chad Kroeger said Tuesday in a release.

NMC says the gallery includes a six-metre video wall and full stage display with many of the band’s outfits and customized instruments from the music video “She Keeps Me Up.”

Also featured is the "What the Hell Is on Joey's Head" champagne bucket, named after a line from the 2005 song "Photograph.”
