‘Hate to Love: Nickelback,’ a feature-length documentary about the Canadian rock band, is coming to select theaters worldwide for two nights only, on March 27 and 30.

Trafalgar Releasing, together with Gimme Sugar Productions and Submarine Entertainment, have announced plans to bring their feature-length documentary film, “Hate to Love: Nickelback,” to theaters worldwide for two nights only on March 27 and 30.

“Hate to Love: Nickelback” premiered last September at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and tells the “authentic story about the band from their humble beginnings in Hanna Alberta, to their explosive global success in 2001 and the highs and lows that followed.”

Directed by Leigh Brooks and produced by Ben Jones, the film celebrates the loyalty of Nickelback fans, delving into years of online vitriol and exposing the personal impact it had on each of the band’s members. The film also unveils the group’s decision to return after a five-year hiatus with a new album and a hugely successful sold-out tour.

“Nickelback has been such an influence on our music culture throughout the years,” said Kymberli Frueh, SVP of Programming and Content Acquisitions at Trafalgar Releasing. “We are thrilled to bring the story of their journey to stardom and the importance of their passionate fans’ support through the decades to cinemas worldwide.”

“We are very excited to finally bring this film to theaters this Spring,” said Nickelback. “It’s been a long road to get this project across the finish line and we must thank Ben Jones and Leigh Brooks for all of their hard work. We hope everyone enjoys our story — fans, friends, or otherwise.”

Tickets for the global theatrical release of “Hate to Love: Nickelback” go on sale starting on February 22 at 10 AM ET, with the film distributed to over1,350 locations across 30 countries. The 90-minute film combines never-before-seen archival footage, concert footage, interviews, and “enthusiastic celebrity advocates” such as Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan and actor Ryan Reynolds.
