Sum 41 Added To Warped Tour, Turned Down Summer Sanitarium

Sum 41 will be busy this summer, but it won’t be on Metallica’s Summer Sanitarium 2003. Vocalist and guitarist Deryk Whibley says that Sum was offered a slot on the tour with Metallica, Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Mudvayne, and the Deftones, but he thought that his band might not gel with 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. Exact dates Sum 41 will be appearing were not known at press time. Summer Sanitarium 2003 kicks off July 4 in Pontiac, Michigan.
