Blink-182, Simple Plan, more to headline Vans Warped 25th anniversary shows
Vans Warped Tour is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, and it’s bringing a whole lot of old friends along for the party. Though last year’s edition of the Warped Tour was trumpeted as the organization’s grand farewell, founder Kevin Lyman announced earlier this year that he was bringing the tour back for just a few 2019 shows. On Friday, Warped unveiled the lineups for those concerts, and they’re pretty much a who’s-who of pop-punk and emo acts from the late ’90s and early 2000s.
The first show will be June 8 in Cleveland at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, to kick off the museum’s new “Forever Warped” exhibit. That show will feature Chalni 2NA & Cut Chemist, Emery, Hawthorne Heights, Simple Plan, and We the Kings.
The next batch of shows will take place June 29-30 in Atlantic City. That lineup includes Andrew W.K., Bad Religion, Blink-182, Bowling For Soup, Good Charlotte, Reel Big Fish, Simple Plan, and more.
The last shows will be July 20-21 in Mountain View, Calif. The All-American Rejects, August Burns Red, Gym Class Heroes, The Offspring, and more will perform at those shows. Multiple artists will of course appear at multiple stops on this 25th anniversary tour.
