From the Dept. of Thank Balls: Nickelback Tickets 'Moving Briskly'

Gotta be the greatest headline ever: "Promoter says Nickelback tickets are moving briskly." As briskly as those richly emotive lyrics? As briskly as those arghy vocables? As briskly as those phenomenal pyrotechnics the band so adeptly employ in their live shows? As briskly as the quiet curls of a gentle lion's perm? Right you are, old boy. (To be read in classy British accent.)

Tickets for the band's forthcoming early 2009 tour, which went on sale to the public Dec. 5, are tracking 20% ahead of the band's 2007 tour numbers, with 210,000 tickets--or 70% of all available seats--already sold, according to a press release issued by Live Nation, which is promoting the tour. The trek, which represents the first fruits of the band's comprehensive unified rights deal with Live Nation, kicks off Feb. 25 in Nashville, TN.
