Sum 41 Kick Off Their Last Tour Ever In Seoul

The Sum is officially setting…

This week, Sum 41 commenced their farewell tour at the Yes24 Live Hall in Seoul, South Korea. While no one is happy that Sum 41’s distorted and jumpy legacy is coming to an end, the band isn’t leaving their fans empty-handed. They will release a double album, Heaven :x: Hell, on March 29, 2024. Their tour, cleverly titled Tour Of The Setting Sum, will span nearly 100 dates across Asia, North America, and Europe, and if the tour opener is any indication, this will be an unforgettable run.

In Seoul, the pop-punk icons played 26 songs for two hours of ‘00s nostalgia. After starting the show with a recording of the AC/DC classic, “T.N.T.,” as they have been at recent gigs, Deryck Whibley appeared on stage in black skinny jeans and a cut-off vest. The screen dropped, lasers flashed, and they launched right into the gold-certified “The Hell Song.” The massive burst of energy continued with two more early favorites: “Motivation” and “Over My Head (Better Off Dead).”

The first debut of the night came next when they played “Waiting On A Twist Of Fate,” a cut from the Hell side of Heaven :x: Hell. The Hell side is all about their metal sound that lets Whibley and the rest of the band go even harder and louder on stage. The same fire came from “Rise Up,” another song from Hell. Heaven is the more classic pop punk Sum 41, and it includes "Landmines,” which wasn’t as angry as the songs from Hell but was just as raucous on stage.

Whibley wasn’t just there to promote the new record, though. He was there to give his legions of fans one final taste of what made them legends before he said farewell. Every big hit, from “Pieces” to “Fat Lip,” was on the setlist for this debut. Plus, they gave a couple of extra treats with covers of Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2” and Queen’s “We Will Rock You.” Then, when it was time for the encore, that’s when he brought out the big gun: the immortal anthem “In Too Deep.”

But that wasn’t the end. There was a second encore, and its one song was “So Long Goodbye.” It was the first time Sum 41 performed it since 2007, and it was a beautiful way to close out the beginning of the Tour Of The Setting Sum. See the full setlist:
