All-American Rejects play the Warped Tour 15th anniversary party: An EW exclusive video!
On September 6th, a group of artists gathered in L.A. to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Warped Tour, everyone’s favorite annual experiment in the conflicting relationship between black hoodies and hot asphalt parking lots. Warped vets including blink-182, the Aggrolites, Bad Religion, Ice-T, Katy Perry, NOFX, and Rise Against played a show that both raised money for Musicares and feted the enduring tour, known for its uncompromising conditions, rider-free artist living, and confirmed status as a fertile breeding ground for all things trending in rock/emo/punk.
