Vans Warped Tour to end after 2018

Vans Warped Tour

Posted on

Vans Warped Tour, a concert that launched some of the biggest names in modern emo and pop-punk, is officially ending — at least, ending its current iteration as a cross-country tour — after its summer 2018 run.

Founder Kevin Lyman announced the news via a letter on the Warped Tour website, where he reminisced about the tour’s beginnings: “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 [to] go out and put on my own show’ mixing music and action sports,” he wrote. “With the support of so many people, I have now spent the last 23 summers bringing that show to a city near you.”

He went on to shout-out bands who’ve defined Warped Tour over the years — Sum 41, Simple Plan, New Found Glory, Good Charlotte, Taking Back Sunday, Jimmy Eat World, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, and Blink-182. Even Katy Perry was a part of the lineup when she first started out.

“What has always made me proud was when I read that Warped was the most diverse show of the summer where you could find Eminem and Ice-T on the same stages as Sevendust, Pennywise, and 7 Seconds,” Lyman wrote in his note.
