“We’re so happy to finally be able to play shows again and couldn’t be more excited to head out on the ‘Blame Canada’ tour with Sum 41!” Simple Plan shares. “It’s hard to believe this will the first time we will co-headline a tour together, but the timing couldn’t be better as we both celebrate the 20th anniversary of our debut albums!”
The band continues: “We have a lot of fans in common and we know they have waited for this for a very, very long time! After not being able to tour for almost 2 years due to the pandemic, we’re gonna go out there and play our hearts out, enjoy every second of being on these stages and we’ll make sure everyone in the crowd has the time of their lives!”
Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley adds: “We have known the guys in Simple Plan for a very long time and know these shows are going to be great. We cannot wait to hit the road with them!”
As part of the upcoming tour, $1 of each ticket sold will help raise funds for the Simple Plan Foundation and Sweet Relief’s Covid-19 Fund. Since 2005 the Simple Plan Foundation has donated over $2M to various charitable causes in Canada to help young people in need. In 2020 Sweet Relief started the Covid-19 Fund to provide emergency financial assistance to music industry professionals who have been devastated by the pandemic.
The tour announcement comes on the heels of Simple Plan’s latest single “Ruin My Life,’ which features Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley and serves as the follow-up to “The Antidote.” “The Antidote” was released late last year and has amassed millons of streams across platforms.
