StatementA MESSAGE TO ALL OUR FANS

During yesterday's show in Boise, Deryck sustained another back injury and we have been forced to cancel the remaining Warped Tour dates and the Canadian run that was to follow.

We hate canceling shows, but Deryck's well being is our top priority and the best thing right now is to give him time to heal.

Thank you for your understanding. We wish Deryck a quick recovery and look forward to getting back out on the road.

Thank you,

THE SUMS.

What a joke. They canceled Warped dates last year (including my date) because he was sick.

Didn't they also cancel Japan dates too?

He should take advantage of Canada's lovely health care system and get surgery.

They should do a whole tour of places they’ve had to cancel due to Deryck in the last year, including Warped in KC.

I probably wasn't going to Rock on the Range anyway, but now that Sum 41 just canceled I'm definitely not going. This is the second time they have canceled a Winnipeg show due to a "back injury." The first was all the way back in 2007 and it's getting pretty ridiculous that this is still a problem and it took them four years to attempt to make the show up.

Back injuries are extremely serious. Even the slightest tweak can make it extremely painful to move around.
