SUM 41: We Turned Down The METALLICA Tour

March 11, 2003

SUM 41 guitarist/vocalist Deryk Whibley recently told Launch that his band were offered a slot on the Summer Sanitarium 2003 Tour with METALLICA, LINKIN PARK, LIMP BIZKIT, MUDVAYNE, and the DEFTONES, but that they decided to turn it down because they thought that they might not gel with the rest of the lineup.

"I think we got offered some of the METALLICA tour, but we're not doing that," Whibley said. "It was just too...We would love to tour with METALLICA, but all the bands on the bill were just too weird for what we're doing. I don't know. I think we're just going to do the Warped Tour and just some festival stuff. I don't think we're going to do any touring festival package tours, but, I don't know, we'll be around for sure."

SUM 41, who just released "Hell Song", will be playing a portion of the Warped Tour, which kicks off June 19 in Nampa, Idaho.
