TORONTO – Sum 41 is heading back home to play what they say will be their final show.
The Canadian rockers have booked Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena on Jan. 30, 2025 as the last stop on a massive world tour that runs for the better part of a year.
Tour Of The Setting Sum, as it’s being called, already has 76 shows with more to be added. It kicks off in Southeast Asia on March 1 before winding through Europe and North America.
The band has booked four dates in Quebec as the only other Canadian shows on the schedule. They say additional Canadian tour dates will be announced soon.
Tickets for many shows – including the final date – go on sale to the general public on Friday at 10 a.m. ET.
Last year, the Ajax, Ont.-formed rockers announced they were planning to split up after the release of their album “Heaven :x: Hell,” out on March 29.
After playing Asia, the band will head to Mexico in late March, before a batch of dates across the United States through April and May.
They’ll then hit Europe for much of June and July.
Sum 41 will return to Canada for four dates in Quebec through August. Three of them are at music festivals.
Following more U.S. dates in September and October, the band plays to a sold-out crowd of more than 35,000 people in November at Paris La Défense Arena in France, which they say is their largest show ever.
