Black Veil Brides, Asking Alexandria + Escape the Fate Lead 2015 Vans Warped Tour Lineup
It's hard to imagine, but a tour that's long been associated with the youth of summer is turning 21 this year. Vans Warped Tour organizers have revealed the final batch of bands that will be playing this summer's run and the lineup is now complete.
Some of the bigger names on the run include Black Veil Brides, Asking Alexandria and Escape the Fate. Black Veil Brides have played Vans Warped Tour before and return armed with their self-titled fourth studio album. Escape the Fate have undergone some changes over the years, but return to Warped stronger than ever. And Asking Alexandria will be one of the more scrutinized acts of the summer. Former frontman Danny Worsnop once shared his lack of fondness for Warped, but he's no longer with the band and the group's fans will definitely be watching with anticipation to see how AA moves forward with a mysterious, yet-to-be-revealed new vocalist.
Vans Warped Tour will also feature performances from a number of familiar names like Miss May I, Senses Fail, Silverstein, Blessthefall, Memphis May Fire, August Burns Red, Attila, The Amity Affliction and Beartooth among others. You can check out the full lineup of performers at this location.
It should also be noted that the Vans Warped Tour will also have a comedy tent this summer, offering an alternative for concertgoers looking for a break from the music or parents chilling out while their kids check out the various acts. Beth Stelling, Chase Bernstein, Dave Ross, Eli Olsberg, Eric Schwartz, Grant Cotter, Sammy Obeid and Sandy Danto will be among those keeping the laughs going all summer long.
This year's Vans Warped Tour gets underway June 17 in Anchorage, Alaska at the George M. Sullivan Sports Arena, with dates booked through an Aug. 8 finale at the White River Amphitheater in Auburn, Washington. Check out the full itinerary and get your tickets here.
