Simple Plan issued the following statement:

“We are very disappointed to announce that we have made the difficult decision to drop-off of the “Pop-Punk’s Still Not Dead” tour with New Found Glory. If you bought a ticket for the tour and would like a refund, you will be able to request one – keep an eye out on your email.

When we announced the rescheduled dates for the tour last May, the situation with the pandemic was very different from where it is now and we were cautiously optimistic that going back on tour could be safe for everyone.

Although we are all vaccinated and despite the very strict protocols we had planned to put in place, we are very concerned at the thought of going out on such an extensive tour.

After many tough discussions and internal debate, we have come to the conclusion that it just feels too soon for us.

There’s nothing we would love more than to be out there and play for all of you, but we have to follow our gut and do what feels right for us at this time.

We know a lot of you were really looking forward to seeing us play live again and will be disappointed by this news and might disagree with our decision. We want you to know that we acknowledge and respect your opinions, and that we are so sorry to let you down.

Our friends in New Found Glory have made the decision to move forward with the shows. They’re an amazing live band and we’re sad we won’t have the chance to see them play every night. We wish them the best and hope that everyone involved in the tour and all the fans who choose to attend will stay safe and healthy.”

New Found Glory also commented:

“Pop Punk’s Still Not Dead Tour has some news! The tour will now feature New Found Glory, Less Than Jake, Hot Mulligan, and Lolo! Due to unforeseen circumstances, Simple Plan are no longer part of the lineup. Other than Warped Tour, New Found Glory and Less Than Jake have not done a proper tour together since the infamous Honda Civic Tour back in 2003 so we are very excited that they were able to step in! Hot Mulligan is an awesome new band that most of you have probably heard of and we’re happy to still have Lolo on the tour. Also, many cities, venues and promoters are requiring proof of a negative COVID-19 test result or full vaccination, as well as mask mandates in some areas, to attend shows. We encourage you to check your local venue’s websites for any mandates that they have put in place for everyone’s safety. Our tour party will be following all local protocols and abiding by these mandates to insure our safety as well. It’s been so long since we’ve all been able to be in a room together and we’ve worked really hard to bring you an amazing show so let’s do all we can to make it as safe and enjoyable for everyone! Get ready for an awesome night!! We are ready to shred!!!”

“We are very excited to bring a piece of Senses Fail history back and share it with our fans. Our very first EP was the birth of SF and to have a chance to update the sound and play in full was an opportunity we jumped at.
