Vans Warped Tour News - 2013 Vans Warped Tour Updates
For fans of alternative music, attending the Vans Warped Tour is like going on a pilgrimage. The Warped Tour just completed its 19th year as the hottest summer music festival
sponsored by Vans Shoes. The tour’s dates were announced before the lineup, and it kicked off in March at Club Nokia
in L.A. with a party featuring bands as diverse as Chiodos and Big Chocolate. The tour will play shows in Europe and, for the first time ever, Australia. There are old-time favorites headlining like New Found Glory, Reel Big Fish, and the Aquabats (Travis Barker once played drums for them) as well as plenty of new acts which include greats in the pop and hip-hop categories.
The Warped Tour traveled the States from June to August. The first venue was in Auburn, Washington, just south of Seattle. The tour then moved down the coast, playing two dates in Pomona, California. The tour then moved east, playing just one non-American date in Toronto on July 5th. It went on to hit up major arenas in New York, New Jersey, and throughout New England as well as Pennsylvania. The last three dates were scheduled for Texas – Dallas, San Antonio, and Houston. The tour will take a break for a few months and then resume in Berlin, Germany before traveling abroad until the end of the year.
Organizers for 2013’s fest focused on up-and-coming acts, and while Warped Tour ticket sales saw a slight downturn at first, they picked back up in July. Next year, the tour will celebrate 20 years of rock! Check back with Razorgator for the best prices on your Vans Warped Tour tickets!
