PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’ve noted in the public announcement, I’ve never attended a Warped Tour before and it was more a matter of time and knowledge of the run of bands. I did want to see the shows that HIM, Lordi and Black Veil Brides had done but a lot of the groups were not ones I was always writing about. Hopefully if one of the shows is happening near enough to me I will look into being there for the grand finale. What do you think about the dates? Is it something you are making down even though its more than a half a year away? Chime in down in the comments below. You know I love getting your opinion.
