Following the announcement that 2018 would be its final cross-country run, the Vans Warped Tour headed out for a final summer of music, philanthropy, and community.
Looking back on it now, founder Kevin Lyman shares, “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.”
The location and venue details for the Warped Tour 25thAnniversary shows will be announced on Monday January 28th. Tickets and the artist lineup will be available by early March.
For many, this announcement comes as no surprise; the Vans Warped Tour 25thAnniversary Celebration was eluded to in Lyman’s original statement about the end of the Vans Warped Tour:
“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.’”
