Chicago, IL // October 06, 2019
Sum 41 came to the Vic Theatre in Chicago to play an amazing show with a mixture of older songs and new. This year is a special time because “Chuck,” their third album release in 2004, is celebrating its upcoming 15th year anniversary. Also playing their new recent seventh studio album titles in descending order!
In the beginning the Sum 41 blasted off confetti cannons while singing “The Hell Song”. The crowd this show was an all ages show but there were so many younger faces singing along with the band and older fans! Sum 41 towards the end of their set played a cover of Queen “We Will Rock You” towards the end of their set, which the crowd absolutely loved! They also did two encores, the first encore they played “Never There,” (Chuck album) and “Fat Lip,” (All Killer, No Filter album). For the 2nd encore, they only played “Pain for Pleasure” (All Killer, No Filter album) which was a hair metal version!
The show was filled with rock music and smiles from everyone, including the band. Deryck Whibley, lead singer of Sum 41, had the biggest smile out of anyone in the crowd and on stage. I definitely recommend seeing Sum 41 on this tour, not because of the new album or celebrating the anniversary of Chuck, but because this was the most energy I have seen from them, they were amazing! I am a super fan of Sum 41 and this was by far one of the best shows I have ever seen them play! So go out and catch them at a city near you!
