‘Don’t Call it a Sum-Back,’ Sum 41 are going on a North American fall tour


Sum 41’s summer has been filled with two months on the Vans Warped Tour, but don’t expect the Canadian group to take a break. On Monday (Aug. 8), the band announced plans to hit the North American roads this fall. The trek, which has been named the “Don’t Call it a Sum-Back” tour will kick off on Oct. 5 at the House of Blues in Orlando. The month-long trek will then wrap up a month later on Nov. 6 at the Mayan in Los Angeles.

Senses Fail and As It Is will join Sum 41 for the complete North American journey. Sum 41 has joined forces with CID Entertainment to offer three different VIP Experiences throughout the tour. The packages will offer everything from an invitation to a pre-show jam session and hang with the band to access to an exclusive viewing area on stage during the show.

VIP pre-sales are set to begin on Tuesday, Aug. 9, at 10 a.m. local time. For those who just want to purchase tickets to the show, general sales will begin on Friday, Aug. 12, at 10 a.m. local time. In addition to the pre-sales, Sum 41 also announced that they will be joining forces with the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. The organization assists with  providing financial help in the form of grants, medical bill reductions, as well as outside assistance to all types of career musicians and music industry workers who are struggling to make ends meet while facing illness, disability, or age-related problems. Those who feel like helping out will be given the option to make a donation during the ticket checkout process.
