Vans Warped Tour Announces Final Tour EVER!
Awww, this makes me sad. Some of my favorite memories of my later teens/early 20’s was attending the Vans Warped Tour at the The World in Tinley Park (Chicago). Did I just date myself? At any rate, it’s been announced that the 24th and final edition of the Vans World Tour will take place this year. They will stop in 37 cities including Las Vegas, Dallas, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta and Tampa. While Drive Thru Records and their amazing line up is no more, there are still a ton of amazing bands to check out including Asking Alexandria, Sum 41, Taking Back Sunday, The Used, Simple Plan, Silverstein, Underoath and All Time Low.
Last year’s line up boasted 90 acts including Hatebreed, Gwar, Hawthrorne Heights, Anti-Flad and The Ataris. The Vans Warped Tour has been a yearly staple since 1995 and takes place across North America and sometimes Australia Japan and Europe. It has been instrumental in launching the careers of huge bands such as Fall Out Boy, Paramore, Blink-182, Machine Gun Kelly, and my most fav. Andrew McMahon (formerly Something Corporate).
