Van's Warped Tour, the iconic music festival that's toured the U.S. since 1995, is coming to an end.
The festival's founder, Kevin Lyman, announced online today that 2018 would be the final run for the show that helped give rise to alternative groups like Blink 182 and Metric, among others.
Here is his statement, in part:
"I have been a very lucky person to have traveled across the country and sometimes around the world as one of the founders and producers of the Vans Warped Tour. Today, with many mixed feelings, I am here to announce that next year will be the final, full cross-country run 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 final show in the Detroit area is scheduled for Friday, July 20, with $100 and $200 pre-order ticket bundles already available, although the location isn't listed.
