Now the news is here to bring you up to speed on who is performing where and its a massive press release to absorb so refresh that cup of coffee or anything else you prefer to start your morning with and read on down below.

“The Vans Warped Tour holds a very special place in our hearts and in our history.” explains Steve Van Doren, vice president of global events and promotions at Vans. “It was through the annual tour that we were able to bring music and action sports to youth across the globe for over two decades. We are really excited to partner with Kevin and the Warped team to put on a once in a lifetime experience to celebrate the tour’s final year.”

The Vans Warped Tour anniversary lineups are packed with acts that represent decades of youth culture that has thrived in parking lots across the country.

The Press Release:
Following the announcement that 2018 would be the last cross-country run, the Vans Warped Tour headed out for a final summer of music, philanthropy, and community.

Looking back on it now, Vans Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman shares, “It was truly an honor to do a final cross-country run of Warped in 2018; to see fans from all eras of the tour come out for a day to celebrate an event that meant so much to them. I walked away from the final show with a true sense that the Vans Warped Tour became the community I had always hoped for.”

Fans can expect the heart of the Warped Tour experience to be intact, but on a much larger scale over 2 full days. 50+ bands across multiple stages, extreme sports ranging from skateboarding to motocross, and an exhibit of art that has come out of the tour’s history.

“With the [Vans Warped Tour] 25th Anniversary events, we want to bring the atmosphere of a classic Warped Tour show, but on a scale that our fans simply could not get with a national tour “ explains Lyman, “The bands, the special attractions, everything – we want to bring back elements that have made the Warped Tour, Warped Tour, over the past 25 years.”

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.
