Warped Tour is calling it quits after 2018

November 15, 2017

After 23 years of traversing the U.S., the traveling summer punk showcase, The Vans Warped Tour, is coming to an end following the 2018 run.

In a statement on Wedensday, founder Kevin Lyman said "2018 will be the final, full cross-country run" of the tour. You can read the full statement from facebook below.

Warped Tour brought countless punk, ska, and hip-hop artists across the country over the last 20+ years, including Blink-182, My Chemical Romance, and Fall Out Boy. The first-ever tour included Sublime, No Doubt, and Deftones, among others, and hit 25 cities across the U.S. and Canada.

The 2017 tour kicked off in Seattle and brought 62 bands to the Emerald City.

The farewell tour lineup and schedule has yet to be announced. Also, the fact Lyman says it's the final full cross-country run leaves open the possibility of smaller tours, individual festivals, or other iterations of the Warped brand in the future, as alluded to in his statement when the tour would have reached 25 years in 2019.

Will you be making it to one more run of the tour before it comes to its final stop?
