Canadian pop-punk icons Sum 41 have announced their final headlining world tour, Tour Of The Setting Sum, which will conclude with their last ever show as a band in January, 2025. The concert will bring them back to their home province of Ontario — the group hail from Ajax, Ontario — for one final gig at Toronto's Scotiabank Arena on January 30 of next year.

Before that, though, the band will tour the world, with 70-plus dates kicking off in Jakarta, Indonesia on March 1, taking the group to Japan, Austria, America and more. The tour coincides with the release of the band's final album,Heaven :x: Hell, which is set for March 29.

The band has previewed the album with two singles. "Landmines" is a high energy shot of classic pop-punk — a sound that has had clear influences on younger acts like Olivia Rodrigo, Willow, and rising Canadian songwriter ThxSoMuch — while "Rise Up" shows off a heavier sound the band has embraced in the last decade, without sacrificing Sum 41's penchant for catchy choruses. The singles reflect Heaven :x: Hell's duality: a double record, the album has one half highlighting pop-punk, and the other leaning towards metal.

In addition to the closing show in Toronto, the Tour Of The Setting Sum features a run of four Canadian dates in Quebec, with the band playing Rimouski, Quebec City, Saguenay and Victoriaville this August. The tour also includes Sum 41's largest show to date, a sold-out performance at the Paris La Défense Arena in Nanterre, France hosting over 35,000 people.

The tour will serve as a final hurrah for Sum 41 following a 27-year career. The band first rose to attention during the pop-punk heyday of the early 2000s with their 2001 debut LP All Killer No Filler, which reached No. 13 on the Billboard 200 and No. 9 on the Canadian Albums chart. They build on that success with 2004's Chuck, which went to No. 2, and hit No. 1 in Canada with 2007's Underclass Hero. The band have also won two Juno Awards and sold over 15 million albums worldwide.

Though Sum 41's recent tours have only been getting bigger as fellow veteran pop-punk bands like Blink-182 and Green Day play stadiums, lead singer Deryck Whibley explained in a recent interview with GQ that the pace takes its toll, between stress and medical issues and detracting from time with family. Last fall, following a tour with The Offspring, Whibley experienced a life-threatening bout of COVID and pneumonia.

Whibley doesn't want to end up "a miserable rock star who doesn’t want to go onstage," he told GQ. Instead, the band are going out on a high, experiencing a career resurgence and releasing a record Whibley is proud of.

Pre-sale for Tour Of The Setting Sum starts on Friday, January 19 via the band's website. Toronto pre-sale begins on January 17.
