Vans Warped Tour 2010
The summer installment of the Warped Tour 2010, sponsored again by Vans Shoes, will take place for the 16th year and will kick off on 25 June 2010. It is a tour that consists of no less than 43 concert dates, and a variety of bands and artists have been confirmed to participate in this vibrant event. Over the years, the Warped Tour has gained popularity, as it brings numerous bands together and offers audience members a unique experience at each of the different stages. The tour will run until the 15th of August 2010, and three of the tour dates are in Canada, while the rest are spread across the United States.
Tickets for this festive tour have already gone on sale on the official Vans Warped Tour website, and though venues and artists have been confirmed, stages and their placements are still subject to change. Some of the bands to look forward to include Attack Attack, Breathe Carolina, Mike Posner, Pennywise, Sparks the Rescue, Fight Fair, Mayday Parade, The Swellers, The Impalers, The Frantic, Ice Nine Kills, Flatfoot 56, Whitechapel, Parkway Drive, Vanna, The Rocket Summer, Anti-Flag, Everclear, Hey Monday, Long Way, Sum 41 and many more talented artists. Some of the bands and artists are only confirmed for part of the tour or for one concert only, so fans will have to check the listed performances at each venue to decide which concert would best suit them.
A number of venues have been selected across many states, bringing the tour to as many music enthusiasts as possible. The cities include Houston, Phoenix, Cleveland, Montreal, Oceanport, Uniondale, Salt Lake City, Marysville, Denver, Charlotte, Milwaukee, San Diego, Atlanta, Columbia, Carson and Las Cruces. The first concert, which was the start of the first leg of the tour, The Warped Tour Kickoff Party, was held in West Hollywood, at The Key Club, on 9 April 2010, and featured performances by Death Punch, Pierce the Veil and Andrew WK. With the start of the tour being such a major success, it is anticipated that the summer Warped Tour will once again be a memorable and entertaining event.
