In Pictures: Sum 41 Get Intimate In London
Last night (January 20) in north London, Sum 41 played a special intimate show at The Dome as part of a pre-Slam Dunk celebration.
Packing out the 500-capacity venue, the Canadian punk veterans didn’t come to play, they came to stake their claim as one of the all-time greatest party bands with a Does This Look Infected anniversary setlist. “A 17-year and 63 day anniversary,” frontman Deryck Whibley joked.
Throwing out all the early noughties pop-punk jams, the swarming crowd never stopped moving, whipping up circle pits and hurling crowdsurfers in every direction. And what would you expect from a setlist that boasted The Hell Song, All Messed Up, Still Waiting and Over My Head (Better Off Dead). And that’s not even counting the ludicrous encore of Motivation, In Too Deep, Fat Lip and more.
They even found time to cover We Will Rock You, as well as throwing in a nod to Pink Floyd’s Another Brick In The Wall.
Here’s what happened when Sum 41 got up close and personal in London.
