Reports suggesting that Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger has died hit the Internet overnight, causing a frenzy on Twitter. A story published on mediafetcher.com states that Kroeger was killed following a Jet-Ski crash in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
However, the story appears to be yet another hoax. The band took to Twitter just a few hours ago to assure fans that “all 4 of them” will still be playing their show in NYC on Thursday.
