Sum 41 Are Back And Stronger Than Ever With The 'Don't Call It A Sum-Back' Tour
Passion & energy would consistently get to a higher level throughout the evening.
With an arsenal of songs consisting of tracks released over the last (almost) two decades, a lot of fan favourites were among them, resulting into a setlist of almost 2 hours.
Besides setopener 'A Murder Of Crows', the setlist included the likes of prior to the album released 'Fake My Own Death' and 'War'. Admirable was that the crowd went as hard on the new tracks as they did on the older songs, proving that even after a few years of inactivity, Sum 41 are still strong as hell. After a neverending whirling moshpit and crowdsurfers, Sum 41 took a step back halfway through the show to perform emotional track 'With Me'.
For this track, frontman Deryck Whibley submerged from the stage and was escorted by security staff to a smaller stage in the middle of the fairly big sized 013 to give the people in the back and on the balcony also a chance to take a good hard look at the frontman and his guitarskills.
New drummer Frank Zummo was also given the opportunity to win the fans over with his killer drumsolo which occured right after the stellar performance of yet another new track 'The Fall And Rise'. This was followed by a track taken from the band's slightly heavier album Chuck: 'No Reason'. To switch things up a bit, Sum 41 took it upon themselves to cover the rock anthem by Queen 'We Will Rock You'. This quickly preceded into two of the biggest tracks Sum 41 have released in their 20 years as a band: 'Still Waiting' and 'In Too Deep'.
