Add Nickelback to the list of acts settling down for a spell in Las Vegas. 

The Canadian rockers have announced a five-show residency at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, running Feb. 23-24 and 27 and March 2-3. Monster Truck will be opening all five shows. Tickets go on sale at 1 p.m. EST on Friday (November 10).

The five concerts are the only thing on Nickelback’s itinerary currently as the group continues to promote its moribund ninth studio album Feed The Machine, which debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 in June but has stalled sales-wise and has not produced a hit single.
