Warped Tour announces 2018 will be final cross-country run

KUSA - All good things must come to an end. 

The Vans Warped Tour announced Wednesday morning that the 2018 tour will be its final, full cross-country run.

The tour will make a stop in Denver on July 1, 2018.

The Vans Warped Tour, which began in 1995, is the longest-running touring music festival in North America. It is known for launching the careers of many rock, pop and rap stars including Katy Perry, Green Day, No Doubt, Blink-182, The Offspring, Jimmy Eat World, Eminem, Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance.

Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman made the announcement about the tour's fate in a statement on WarpedTour.com.

"I am so grateful to have worked with more than 1,700 bands over the last 23 summers. I wish I could thank every band that has played the tour," Lyman writes.

Although the tour will no longer make a full cross-country trek, there are still plans for a 25th anniversary celebration in 2019.

"The enduring spirit of the Vans Warped Tour remains as bright as ever, continuing to inspire creativity and ambition in new and exciting ways as we prepare for a 25th anniversary celebration in 2019. I truly look forward to seeing as many of you as possible during this final cross country run, and getting to thank you for your support on this wild adventure. Until then, take care and be safe,” writes Lyman.
