Sum 41 To Hold Final Tour With A Stop In Malaysia Before Disbanding


In a time when rock-n-roll feels like a fading memory, a beacon of punk-rock, Sum 41, has announced their swansong. The Canadian rock band, an embodiment of the rebellious spirit of the early 2000s, is calling it a day after a glorious 28-year long journey. In their parting gift to the fans, Sum 41 is embarking on a global farewell tour, ‘Sum 41: Tour of the Setting Sum’, and Malaysia has the honour of being one of their stops.

The news dropped like a drumbeat on Instagram by event organizers Hitman Solutions and Happy Moon, sent waves of nostalgia among the band’s avid followers. The tour, coupled with the release of their final album this year, is the band’s fitting farewell to their worldwide fan base that has been with them through thick and thin.

The farewell show is set to rock the Mega Star Arena in Kuala Lumpur on March 5, 2024. The band, known for their pop-punk anthems like In Too Deep, Still Waiting, and Pieces, has been a musical companion to many. They have not just entertained but also shaped the musical inclinations of a whole generation that grew up in the ’80s and ’90s.

For Malaysian fans, the concert holds a special significance. The band, as of now, has only revealed plans for three other concerts in Asia – Japan, Singapore, and Indonesia. Thus, Malaysia will be one of the rare stages where the band will strum their guitars and beat their drums for the last time.
