If you were licking your chops and chomping at the bit for the potential sideshows on offer when Vans Warped Tour comes Down Under in December then get ready to eat a big bag of shit because the man behind the mayhem, AJ Maddah, has said there will be no sideshows.
As usual, this Maddah news has come via Twitter after the promoter responded to an inquisitive fan, and his reasons seems fair enough: the man with the plan wants to first re-establish the Warped brand in Australia, which hasn’t visited our this country for over 10 years.
However, for fans this means the rush when tickets go on sale for this year’s Warped Tour will be even more competitive, with no alternative option of seeing your favourite act play at their own headlining show.
With bands like The Story So Far, Reel Big Fish and The Used on the current American Warped Tour and Rise Against, Capture The Crown and Itch on the upcoming UK Warped Tour, this old man says Australia could be in for one gosh darn heck of a show!
UPDATE: Vans Warped Tour Australia 2013 tour dates have been announced! More details here!
@xxmoshlordxx not this year. I’d like to wait til we have re-established the festival in Aus 1st.
