“With the [Vans Warped Tour] 25th Anniversary events, we want to bring the atmosphere of a classic Warped Tour show, but on a scale that our fans simply could not get with a national tour.

The bands, the special attractions, everything – we want to bring back elements that have made the Warped Tour, Warped Tour, over the past 25 years.”

The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame date will notably feature an exhibit dubbed ‘Forever Warped: 25 Years Of Vans Warped Tour‘, which celebrates the tour’s lengthy history, complete with items from the very first edition of the tour onward. Instruments played by members of Fall Out Boy, No Doubt, Rancid and more will also be on display.

The exhibit will also feature a special opening concert with bands from across the tour’s entire history performing, along with a mini vert ramp and more.
