Sum 41: Canada (Halifax), September 18, 2004
This concert was eleven hours long, and a terrible mess of rain and mud. But the sound of all the bands involved made up for it completely.

Sound: This concert was eleven hours long, and a terrible mess of rain and mud. But the sound of all the bands involved made up for it completely. There were approximitly eight opening bands, notably Not By Choice and Bombs Over Providence, and several local bands Who I enjoyed thoroughly, such as Sharp Like Knives (really good), Folds Of Policy, The Danny Mainstreet Band Contrived, and The Art Of. The sound of every band was fantastic, and overall great to sing along with. You could hear whoever was playing all the way down the next street. // 10

Perfomance: Whatever audience was left when from the weather (about 200, formerly about 3,500) definitly enjoyed it, and were as pumped as a crowd of 10,000. Sum 41 took a little longer getting ready, because Deryck's amp blew up from the rain or a short circuit or something, but the quick thinking tech crews used a smaller Fender amp for his guitar, and had it ready by about the third song. They played one new song (We're All To Blame) which was extremely well done. They played most of the singles and other favourites, and lead guitarist Brownsound threw in some wicked solos in between songs. My friends and I hate great standing spots near the stage where the barrecades formed a 'V' at the bottom of it. The was no one in front because of them so we were able to stand on the barrecade and get a good view. // 10

Overall Impression: The concert took place on the 18th of September, 2004, on Citadel Hill in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. The weather conditions for the show were atrocious. We recieved the most rain in one day on record in about 40 years. Everyone was soaking wet and freezing cold, but the show was still enjoyable. The ticket was $30 even, and was defenitly worth the change. The amount of bands more than made it worth it. My friend caught one of Steve-O's broken drum sticks, and I got a CD from one of the openers. I would definitly go to their next show around here, givin' I have sufficient funds at the time. // 10
