Sum 41 have announced the UK and European dates for their farewell tour

The 'Fat Lip' hitmakers - made up of Deryck Whibley, Dave Baksh, Jason 'Cone' McCaslin, Tom Thacker and Frank Zummo - will be bringing their 'Tour of the Setting Sum' to arenas in October as they hit the road for the last time.

In a statement, Deryck said: "We are really excited to announce shows in the UK and Europe later this year.

“This forms another leg of our last-ever shows and our fans overseas have been incredible to us over the years, so we can’t wait to put on on the best show of our lives and go out on a high.”

The European leg kicks off on October 21 in Den Bosch, Netherlands, with shows set for Brussels, Caen, Prague, Paris, Budapest, Vienna, Rome and more, with other dates still to be announced.

The UK leg starts on October 26 in Leeds, followed by Glasgow, Manchester, Nottingham and London before the tour comes to an end in Cardiff on November 2.

Support for the UK shows comes from The Bronx, who will also join Sum 41 for certain European gigs, with Neck Deep playing on others.

The 'In Too Deep' pop punk legends revealed earlier last year they would be splitting after the release of their eighth album 'Heaven :x: Hell' and a farewell world tour.

Announcing their plans to disband, the group wrote at the time: "Being in Sum 41 since 1996 brought us some of the best moments of our lives. We are forever grateful to our fans both old and new, who have supported us in every way.

"It is hard to articulate the love and respect we have for all of you and we wanted you to hear this from us first."

In December last year, frontman Deryck said he felt "really good" about their latest album, which has given him the closure he needs.

He told NME: "We didn’t know we’d be splitting up when we were making it, but I’ve been making records and touring with this band since I was 15.

“I’ve had this feeling for a long time now that I want to do something different and it just feels like the right time. This album feels like the perfect way to go out.”
