Punk rock powerhouse, Sum 41, finished off the No Personal Space Tour to a sold out Chicago crowd. The band dialed back on the capacity of the venues to pay homage to the small clubs they had once visited in their earlier years.
The lights fade out - AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell” blasting over the PA sends the crowd into hysteria. Drummer, Frank Zummo is the first to take the stage with a friendly wave to the ecstatic crowd followed by bassist, Cone McCaslin, guitarists, Dave “Brownsound“ Baksh and Tom Thacker. Lastly, frontman, Deryck Whibley takes his place at the mic stand.
Sum 41 began the night by turning back the clocks to their 2001 platinum release All Killer No Filler track “Motivation” followed by many fan favorites from their entire discography including “Still Waiting”, “No Reason”, “Some Say” and a mega medley of the mighty METALLICA songs. It’s really no surprise to most Sum 41 fans that the band would throw in a few metal covers considering their personal music preferences. Amongst parading through their singles, covers and fan favorites Sum 41 pulled out a new song called “Out For Blood” (see music video below) from their upcoming album Order In Decline which is set to be released on July 19, 2019.
Just when we all thought it was over - the band remerged to the stage for an encore of one of their very first songs called “Machine Gun” which was featured on Half Hour of Power. And what better way to end an amazing night and such memorable tour than with the monster hit “Fat Lip” which skyrocketed the band into superstardom.
Be on the lookout for even MORE tour dates this year as stated by Deryck Whibley following the release of their brand new album Order In Decline.
