Since 1995 the Warped Tour was a place for people who were into eclectic alternative music, and punk rock to see their favourite bands and discover new artists. It was the biggest travelling tour ever, and it was a breeding ground for the best bands in the world to come and play to the masses. Arguably without Warped Tour, acts like Blink 182, Sublime, Paramore, NoFX, Rancid, My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, may not have seen the success they have. It’s a tour that even came to Calgary for a while, creating more of a rock music atmosphere in our great city. Now, after almost 25 years, Kevin Lyman, the mastermind behind Warped, is tired. And the tour for him hasn’t been fun for the last few years, and given the economy right now, the tour sadly must end. You can read his full statement here. And RIP Warped Tour, thnks fr th mmrs.
