Fans of Warped Tour were confused when Kevin Lyman tweeted out a set of dates last month for Warped 25th anniversary dates in 2019. Wasn't Warped Tour over? The tour itself is over, but Warped always said they would have occasional shows in some markets to celebrate the young bands and the Warped brand.
Lambgoat reports that the locations have now been determined:
6/8 Cleveland, OH @ Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
6/29 Atlantic City, NJ @ Atlantic City Beach
6/30 Atlantic City, NJ @ Atlantic City Beach
7/20 Mountain View, CA @ Shoreline Amphitheatre
7/21 Mountain View, CA @ Shoreline Amphitheatre
Last month, Kevin Lyman, the founder of the fest clarified these new shows:
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.
I sit here reflecting on the tour’s incredible history, what the final run means for our community, and look forward to what’s to come as we commemorate the tour’s historic 25th anniversary in 2019.[…] The enduring spirit of the Vans Warped Tour remains as bright as ever, continuing to inspire creativity and ambition in new and exciting ways as we prepare for a 25th anniversary celebration in 2019.
