A medical emergency involving Nickelback’s front man Chad Kroeger has forced the multi-platinum rock band to cancel its North American tour, including the Aug. 1 concert at DTE Energy Music Theatre.

Kroeger has an operable cyst on his voice box. The Canadian rocker will have surgery next month followed by plenty of vocal rest per doctor’s orders.

Refunds are available at the point of purchase.

The European dates of Nickelback’s “No Fixed Address Tour” are scheduled to start as planned on Sept. 30.
