It Just Might Be Coming to a City Near You




Then in it’s second year, the 1996 Vans Warped Tour, with it’s mixture of music and extreme sports barnstormed across North America. Kicking off on the Fourth of July in Phoenix, Arizona the tour played twenty-two venues in sixteen states and three Canadian provinces by the time the tour concluded on July 31st.

Now in it’s fifteenth year, this years tour begins on June 24th in San Diego and concludes on August 15th in Hillsboro, Oregon. In between the tour will play 43 dates in 26 states and three Canadian provinces.

One thing that hasn’t changed though is that over the course of it’s fifteen year run the tour provides much needed exposure for a host of post-hardcore, pop punk, and metalcore acts that in this day of highly segmented corporate rock radio they would never receive.
