Nickelback Scraps European Tour

There's more bad news for Nickelback fans.

After scuttling most of its North American tour for frontman Chad Kroeger to have a cyst removed from his vocal cords, the group is now canceling the European leg of its No Fixed Address tour, which was set to begin September 30 in Helsinki, Finland, and wrap December 7 in Belarus.

In a statement, the group says that, "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."

The Canadian quartet's "No Fixed Address" album come out last November and debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200. The tour began February 14 in Allentown, Pa., and also played shows in Australia and Japan before the second North American leg was canceled in late June.
