Warped Tour Comes To An End After 23 years

On November 15, 2017, Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman
had announced that after 23 years the tour would be coming
to an end after one final trek across the US in the summer of
2018. The tour is the longest running music festival in North
America and had launched careers for bands such as BlinkWarped-SimplePlan-452x290
182, Paramore and many others since its inception in 1995.
Over 1,700 bands have graced the stages of the festival over
the last 23 years and fans are eagerly waiting for the band
announcements on March 1st to see if their favourites have
been booked for the final run. There is no word yet if there
will be an annual Kickoff Show and press conference which
was usually held in Los Angeles but ended up at Full Sail

University the last 2 years of the tour. After a few years of
not playing Ventura, California and Toronto, Ontario the tour
will be returning to those cities but it will not be returning to
cities in the Northwest besides Mountain View, California

Lyman has also hinted at a large celebration in 2019 for the
tours 25th anniversary.

I remember as a kid wishing I could go to the Warped Tour
when it first started out but my parents thought I was too
young to go up to LaSalle Park in Buffalo, New York alone
and they couldn’t take me. In 2001, my luck changed and I
won tickets to go to Warped Tour from the local radio station
WBER 90.5FM and they rented a Greyhound bus to transport
the winners to and from the venue. So early on August 8th,
2001 my mom dropped me off at the station to take the bus
to the show. My website had just started less than 2 months
prior to the show and since we were just starting out we
ended up getting declined to do press on the tour that year.
That did not stop me, I had put some disposable cameras,


notepad and pen in my pockets. I set out to do photos and
write something up for the show despite not being officially
approved. The following year and final year at LaSalle Park, I
returned to the venue this time I had been approved to do
press. Nicole and I left super early in the morning and
before the show we got to sit in the grass by the lake and
saw the sun come up before picking up our credentials. In
later years my friends and I got to travel all around the north
east and up into Canada doing press, helping bands out with
merch and even volunteered at the MySpace table helping
out with meet and greets. All of us at Burning Stars are sad
to hear about the tour coming to an end. Warped Tour was
an inspiration for us to do what we do. We have had some
great memories and experiences working with different
people and making friends over the years. We can’t wait to
see what Kevin Lyman has in store for the future.

Rest In Peace Dolores O’Riordan 1971-2018

Rest In Peace Dolores O’Riordan 1971-2018

Yesterday morning Dolores O’Riordan of the legendary Irish rock band The Cranberries was found dead at age
46 in her hotel room at the London Hilton on Park Lane. She had been in London working on new music in the
studio and was set to record vocals yesterdayAt Bandar Bola. No cause of death has been determined yet.


The Cranberries rose to fame in the early 90’s with their hits “Linger”, “Dreams”, “Zombie” and “Salvation”. It
all started when a band from Limerick, Ireland had placed an advertisement looking for a new vocalist for the
band, then called The Cranberry Saw Us, and hired Dolores after she sent back a song she had put vocals to
that would later become one of their biggest songs “Linger”. In 1993 they released their debut album Everybody
Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? which went multi-platinum worldwide and followed it up with their equally
as big sophomore album No Need To Argue. The band went on hiatus to allow everyone to work on solo
projects before reuniting in 2009. Last year the band released an album of stripped down favourites called
Something Else and were set to do a world tour before having to postpone due to Dolores having back issues.

The Cranberries were the first band I got into that wasn’t something I had found through my parents and
Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? was the first album I ever got back in early 1993. I never got the
chance to see them live. I did not have many female idols to look up to growing up and Dolores was there
before Shirley, Gwen and others.
Gone but not forgotten. Dolores will live on their her music and her beautiful voice.
