PiercingMetal Thoughts: At the time of this writing there still has not been any sort of Official Announcement with who will actually be performing at the festival but I am sure that this will be coming soon as well. One would have to assume that we will know that scoop when the tickets go on sale because that will make the draw all the more appealing. When we get the rundown of the performers I will share those details here as well. Oddly enough, I’ve never done more than list the festivals on our calendar or done these news broadcasts about it heading our way in our Upcoming Tours section. There had been times in the past that I wanted to attend but I wasn’t able to dedicate the kind of time necessary to do this properly. Oh well. It’s coming “close” to my region so perhaps I will go this time while I still can. What about you readers? Are you going to do to this? Does it even matter who plays for you or is it just the environment of the festival that you love. Chime in down below as all topical notions are approved immediately.

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.

Kevin Lyman Announces “The End Of The Vans Warped Tour” In 2018

Fans of the annual Vans Warped Tour will be sad at the recent revelation by its founder Kevin Lyman, as he announces that the 2018 touring run will be the last for the multi-band event. Take a look at the official statement that he made the other day.

The Official Statement:
“I have been a very lucky person to have traveled across the country and sometimes around the world as one of the founders and producers of the Vans Warped Tour. Today, with many mixed feelings, I am here to announce that next year will be the final, full cross-country run of the Vans Warped Tour. I sit here reflecting on the tour’s incredible history, what the final run means for our community, and look forward to what’s to come as we commemorate the tour’s historic 25th anniversary in 2019.

In 1995, I had already worked many years in the music business, including spending four summers on the Lollapalooza tour, and I thought, ‘for one summer I would like go out and put on my own show’ mixing music and action sports. With the support of so many people, I have now spent the last 23 summers bringing that show to a city near you. We have brought that show to over 11 million people around the world and watched that same world change while doing so.

I have been proud to work with so many artists who have grown to be some of the largest stars in the world. Countless bands have played in hot parking lots and through summer storms for you at some point.

Bands like Quicksand, Sublime, L7, No Use for A Name and No Doubt jumped on in the very first year.

Touring many summers with my friends and peers like – Pennywise, Social Distortion, NOFX, Bad Religion, The Descendents, Less Than Jake, Dropkick Murphy’s, The Bouncing Souls, Rancid, Flogging Molly, Anti-Flag and The Offspring are just some of my fondest memories. More include, having Blink-182 travel on my bus in 1997 when the world opened up to them and made them the superstars they are today.
