There was a time when no skater punk in the early 2000s would be seen without a Sum 41 CD in their collection. Their 2001 album All Killer, No Filler was that generation’s Nevermind, and for whom Nirvana were already long in the past. The Canadian band is coming to Dublin for their Tour of the Setting Sum and it’s expected to be the last hurrah for the alternative punk rockers before a planned disbandment after the tour. They’ll play the hits, and promote Heaven :x: Hell, their final studio album. It’s a double album blending the band’s pop-punk and heavy metal styles. So what can we expect when they take to the Fairview Park, Dublin, stage?

Allow time for security checks on the way in. Bags larger than A4 size will not be permitted and all bags may be searched, and this can be time-consuming, so consider going bagless for easier entry. There will be no cloakroom or storage facilities.

No umbrellas, alcohol, garden furniture, selfie sticks, flares, glasses or cans, among other items, will be allowed into the event. There are no readmissions to the concert, so once you leave there’s no getting back in.

Can I take photographs at the concert?

Yes, but only with a smartphone or small digital camera. Professional cameras with a detachable lens and any other recording equipment are banned.

What’s the weather forecast?

According to Met Éireann, dry conditions are expected. As always with weather in Ireland, the forecast is subject to change.

Regardless, remember that Fairview Park is a standing only venue taking place on grass under canvas so dress accordingly for Irish weather; think wellies, boots or runners, layers, raincoats/ponchos and sun cream, but remember no umbrellas.
