Simple Plan and Sum 41 fans unite! The rock bands team up for the first time ever to announce their co-headliner Blame Canada Tour.
The 36-date trek will begin April 29 in Raleigh, North Carolina, with stops in Pittsburgh, New York, Nashville, New Orleans, Philadelphia and Atlanta before ending August 18 in Denver, Colorado. The first leg will have Set It Off as the opening fixture, while the second leg, which kicks off on July 29, will see Magnolia Park as the opening fixture.
“We’re so happy to finally be able to play again and couldn’t be more excited to be on the ‘Blame Canada’ tour with Sum 41!” Simple Plan Actions. “It’s hard to believe this will be the first time we’ve co-led a tour together, but the timing couldn’t be better as we’re both celebrating the 20th anniversary of our debut albums!”
Bands will be able to celebrate their first albums on tour with Simple Plan on stage No pads, no helmets… Just balls (2002) and Sum 41 Any killer with no filler (2001).
“We have a lot of fans in common and we know they’ve been waiting a long, long time for this!” Simple Plan continues, “After not being able to tour for almost 2 years due to the pandemic, we’re going to go out there and play hard, enjoy every second of being on these stages and make sure everyone in the crowd has the time of their lives!
The news follows the release of Simple Plan’s latest single, “Ruin My Life”, which features Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley, and follows “The Antidote”.
“We’ve known the Simple Plan guys for a really long time and know these shows are going to be awesome,” Whibley said. “We can’t wait to hit the road with them”
