Warped Tour 25th Anniversary

June 8 (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum; Cleveland, Ohio)

If Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman did not prove himself to Cleveland as inept after moving Warped Tour from the Nautica complex parking lot to the insufferable Time Warner Cable Amphitheater at Tower City Center before exiling it all the way to Cuyahoga Falls’ Blossom Music Center, OR, when he botched the Alternative Press Music Awards (which he co-produced) that are now defunct, he certainly has cemented his reputation as an A-grade buffoon with his pathetic excuse of a Warped Tour 25th Anniversary show in Cleveland.

You have to be fucking kidding me! A tour with deep punk rock roots that also aided in launching careers of Eminem, Katy Perry, Paramore, Blink-182 (and many, many more) has decided to celebrate their 25th Anniversary with… Simple Plan? We The Kings? A high school battle of the bands winner? Plus two forgotten bands and one nobody has heard of? This is bullshit! Cleveland deserves better. But more importantly, the Warped name deserves better.

The saving grace? The incredible Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is opening a brand new exhibit: Forever Warped: 25 Years of Vans Warped Tour. Unless the Rock Hall goofs up worse than Lyman (although scientists might argue that’s impossible), the exhibit should be a real treat for fans of the Vans Warped Tour to relive great memories, regardless if they went one year or have been partying since 1995.
