The Dark Horse Tour is an ongoing worldwide concert tour by Canadian hard rock band Nickelback. It is their first world tour since the conclusion of their massive All The Right Reasons Tour, ending on September 2, 2007 in Kansas City, MO. The tour is in support of their new album Dark Horse. Dates were announced on November 26, 2008. Seether and Saving Abel are the opening acts on the tour. On the second half of the North American tour, Hinder, Papa Roach, and Saving Abel will be in support. Black Stone Cherry were the support act for the European tour of the UK in May 2009.

During the tour, Ryan Peake sang for a cover of "Use Somebody" by Kings of Leon during an encore. During the UK leg of the tour, they sang a cover of Highway to Hell by AC/DC with Chris Robertson of Black Stone Cherry on vocals, just before the T-Shirt cannons. A similar format was applied during the rest of the tour, however they sang a cover of Hey Man, Nice Shot by Filter with Shaun Morgan of Seether on vocals. In some of the early shows, "This Afternoon" was played instead "If Today Was Your Last Day". The rock band Sick Puppies will support Nickelback in Australia. On the 2010 European leg of the tour, it has been confirmed that Daughtry will support Nickelback on all of the Europe dates. They have also announced more dates for the spring of 2010 that takes place in select venues in Canada and the United States. Breaking Benjamin, Shinedown, and Sick Puppies have been confirmed to be the opening acts.[1]

According to the Billboard Magazine, Nickelback played in front of 1,046,973 people on the 2009 section of the tour. In the same section, Nickelback grossed $49,908,542 from the tour.[2]
