Blossom Music Center | Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio
Hey, pop punk lovers! Are you ready for a punk-rockin' yet emotional farewell from one of the best pop-punk bands in the world? Sum 41 will bring their final tour to the Blossom Music Center to say goodbye one last time to their Ohio fans. In a real Sum 41 fashion, the concert will be filled with high energy and intensity that only the likes of the Deryck Whibley-led band can deliver. Dubbed "Tour of the Setting Sum," the concert tour will highlight their career-defining songs and their upcoming final album, "Heaven :x: Hell." The Canadian rockers will also be joined by the American ska band The Interrupters. This is going to be one hell of a show that you don't want to miss, especially if Sum 41 tunes were the sound of your youth. From the high-energy pop punk anthems "In Too Deep" and "Fat Lip" to the powerful ballad "Pieces," these songs will not only make you sing along but also bring you down memory lane. So don't miss this concert because this is the last time you will see the Grammy-nominated band perform before they finally call it quits. Want to secure tickets early?

It is sad when bands decide to break up, more so when they have become fan favorites. But that is just how things go. As much as it is a sad time, it is also a great time for celebration. It is a big blow to the rock scene that the pop-punk icon Sum 41 will be disbanding, and they are not going out without a bang. After releasing a farewell album, a final tour will be commencing this year.
Going back into memory lane, Sum 41 shook the world with its youthful and angsty music and influenced the golden age of pop-punk music in the 2000s. They dominated the scene with Blink-182, Simple Plan, and Avril Lavigne. "All Killer No Filler" was one of the biggest highlights of 2001. From being a local band in Ontario, they went international. The songs "Fat Lip" and "In Too Deep" from the album were too irresistible not to jam with. They became radio staples. Road trips and parties would not be perfect without these songs people bop their heads to. "Chuck" would then become a heavy hitter in 2004, bagging a double-platinum certification at the end of the year.
As the 2010s came, the band pushed through after some members were having health problems and continued to put out great music and perform on tours. The release of 13 Voices in 2016 defrosted their electric 2000s energy, which continued in "Order in Decline" in 2019.
By 2023, Deryck Whibley, Dave Baksh, Jason McCaslin, Tom Thacker, and Frank Zummo announced their plans to part ways. But before doing so, they will be releasing an album entitled "Heaven :x: Hell," wherein they combine their original 2000s pop-punk and their mature hard rock sounds. The album contains two discs (heaven and hell). Both have ten songs each. It will come out in March.
Their "last headlining world tour" will start in Indonesia on March 1. The North America leg will begin on April 19 at The Astro in Omaha, Nebraska, with the ska-punk band The Interrupters. They will be saying their goodbyes on January 30 in Toronto.
Sum 41 and The Interrupters will perform at the Blossom Music Center on September 15. Celebrate Sum 41's iconic music in this concert. Their music will live on!
