As the punk rock world braces itself for the end of an era, NOFX, the iconic purveyors of punk mayhem, have announced their final tour, aptly named the “NOFX Final Tour.” After four decades of relentless rebellion, over 2000 shows, and pushing the boundaries of punk, Fat Mike (vocalist/bassist), Eric Melvin and El Hefe (guitarists), and the indomitable drummer “Smelly” Eric Sandin are bidding farewell with a bang.
The NOFX Final Tour is a grand farewell celebration, spanning 40 cities around the world.
Each night promises a punk spectacle, featuring a staggering 40 songs, with full albums, rarities, and more. And true to their punk ethos, NOFX pledges to never repeat a setlist, ensuring that every show is a unique experience for die-hard fans.
The grand finale of this punk odyssey takes place on October 4, 5, and 6, 2024, in Los Angeles at San Pedro’s Berth 46. It’s a historic conclusion to a legendary career, and tickets for these final shows are available at www.PunkInDrublicFest.com. Fans can choose from various options, including single-day passes, the Bro Bundle, VIP packages, and even snag a digital download of each show with ticket purchase.
NOFX, formed in Los Angeles in 1983, has left an indelible mark on punk history, selling over 6 million records worldwide, including two gold records in the US and Canada. Known for their wild live shows, the NOFX Final Tour promises to be no different. Fat Mike himself quips, “We’ve played over 2000 shows in 33 countries, in more than 300 cities, and darn it…we’re a bit tired. One thing I know in my heart…this is going to be the most emotional, heartbreaking, greatest tour of our career. I’ve never been so excited and at the same time terrified. Mostly excited…”
NOFX has teamed up with Cameron Collins from Brew Ha Ha Productions and the Punk In Drublic Craft Beer & Music Festival to curate and produce the North American leg of the Final Tour. Expect craft beer and craft beverage tastings at most dates, giving fans aged 21 and above a chance to raise a glass to the punk legends.
Collins, reflecting on the collaboration, exclaims, “This final year of NOFX will be one of joy, celebration, and tears…I can’t wait to make some final memories with NOFX and send them off into whatever is next for each of these talented and exceptional dudes!”
So, punk enthusiasts, get ready for the ultimate punk pilgrimage.
NOFX’s Final Tour is not just the end of an era; it’s a punk rock rite of passage. As they say, “The times, they are a-changin’,” but punk, it seems, will forever remain etched in the annals of rebellious history.
