The hard-touring rockers are currently overseas in Europe playing theatres and arenas where they stay til December 17. Not ones to rest for too long, the band picks up back in Canada on the West Coast January 19 for a trek that’ll keep them busy through February 23.

Supporting Nickelback is a mix of different bands on different dates. Three Days Grace are on for the whole the ride, while Staind and Trapt pick up a couple shows here and there. The Trews and Thornley round out the set of occasional opening acts for Nickelback’s Canadian dates.

All these shows are still part of the band’s Long Road tour, which they’ve been on since mid-October.

Over on eBay, the boys have put up some special tickets and meet-and-greet passes for charity. Items being auctioned off also include the complete CD collection (autographed), props and clothing from the “Someday” video, a drum lesson with Ryan Vikedal, and an autographed copy of the rare Hesher CD.

Proceeds from the auctions will be donated to the International Children’s Awareness, which is sending medical and educational supplies for people in West Africa.
