Since the initial Vans Warped Tour final cross-country trek announcement came from tour creator and producer Kevin Lyman, the internet has exploded with fan created petitions (to get their favorite band to play the final shows), band & crew’s reflections of their favorite memories on the tour, fans favorite moments, and reactions from bands that have performed on and or want to perform on the Vans Warped Tour throughout the years. Below is a collection of Tweets from bands/public figures reactions and reflections of Warped Tour ending their cross-country trek in 2018.
thank you for the kind words @KevinLyman. @VansWarpedTour changed the life of the band and the lives of every member, so if this is the last year you just tell us where and when to plug in. pic.twitter.com/KJqyCoW5GS

Last year of @VansWarpedTour next year. The memories are absolutely endless. From going to attending every year as a fan since I was 14, to finally playing it this year with Sylar. Nostalgia is an understatement. Thank you for an amazing ride, Warped tour. pic.twitter.com/ck8SIxcBX6

Sad to hear that @VansWarpedTour is comin to a close. I’ve been attending since I was 11. Was so rad to be apart of it for a few years, I never thought we’d be on main stage. RIP #WarpedForever pic.twitter.com/IFxXCO2Pan

The end of an era. I’ve attended the @vanswarpedtour since 2005 and was fortunate enough to tour on it for a few years with the magazine I grew up reading, @altpress. 2018 will be the final tour across the US but what an incredible run. Who would you love to see on #WarpedTour? pic.twitter.com/VuzWsVUhjh

Warped Tour will always be the most impactful music event in my life. Growing up it was my safe haven, in my career it connected us with an audience and in my personal life my wife and I️ met on VWT. Thank you @KevinLyman for including us and giving us all something so special.

i appreciate the dedication so many have given to me and my career over the years however i must insist that finding information about, sharing the address & showing up at my home is inappropriate. We will be moving and i hope that going forward personal privacy will be respected
