Warped Tour 2005 Boasts The Offspring, My Chemical Romance÷

Published: 2005-01-18
Already one of the most popular events in the punk rock community, the Vans Warped Tour is adding some major ammo to its line-up for 2005. The wildly successful Offspring will be adding their veteran selves to the Warped Tour mix, which is now entering its 11th year. Not the only act destined to draw crowds, The Offspring will be joined by the likes of other confirmed bands like Travis Barker and Tim Armstrong's side-project The Transplants, punks Thrice, emo heroes My Chemical Romance, and Chicago quartet Fall Out Boy

Many of the bands, including The Transplants, will be joining the Warped Tour to promote new albums, but at this point it's not known whether or not The Offspring have something up their sleeves. Thrice and My Chemical Romance will continue to tour in support of their albums 'The Artist in the Ambulance', and the highly popular 'Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge', respectively.

The Vans Warped Tour generally hits a few of Canada's major centres, including Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, and Montreal. The travelling festival continues to find great success in a time where ticket sales for live shows seem to be mighty dismal. Tour founder Kevin Lyman had this to say back in October at the What Teens Want festival in Los Angeles: "We've learned not to mess with the brand too much. The formula when we started was to have a backyard party, and that's what this tour is all about. After 10 years we've kept that same atmosphere."

So, give the kids what they want, then.

PLEASE get hawthorne heights the used and definatly STORY OF THE YEAR for warped 2005
Posted by: Anonymous on January 25, 2005
You should bring the used and unwritten law. Oh yeah, bring underoath, they would be good too. But you should definitely try to get Blink and Green Day. That would kick major ass!
Posted by: Anonymous on January 25, 2005
u definetly got to ask blink 182 to go to warped tour they are the most talented band ever they rock hardcore

ALKALINE TRIO!!!!!! They have to be there ...And taking back sunday....But definantly not Good Charlotte cause them and there Stupid song "I just wanna liiiiiveeee" Make me just wanna PuuuuKeee!!!
Posted by: Anonymous on January 26, 2005
From what I've heard Hawthorne Heights are going to be on this years Warped and Blink wont be there because Travis is playing with another band. On my list to see, right now, are Fall Out Boy and MCR. It's going to be awesome.
Posted by: Anonymous on January 26, 2005
ok, dont get the used. and bring in Killswitch Engage.
Posted by: Anonymous on January 26, 2005
I really think that the used should be at the warped tour this year in Detroit at the pontiac silverdome. I have been dying to see them!! Atreyu, Hawthorne Heights, Letter Kills, Avenged Sevenfold, Underoath, Senses Fail, A static Lullaby, Taking Back Sunday, Antiflag, Coheed and Cambria, My Chemical Romance, Yellowcard, STORY OF THE YEAR, Spit for Athena, Less Than Jake, and Green Day should most definitely be at the Warped Tour 2005 in Detroit, Pontiac SilverDome.
Posted by: Anonymous on January 26, 2005
THE USED,no use for a name,rancid, flogging molly, billy talent, sum 41,alexisonfire

I WAS READING ALL OF THE COMMENTS HERE AND THIS IS WHAT I WANNA SAY: THERE'S TWO BANDS THAT YOU HAVE TO GET **ABSOLUTELY** FOR 2005'S WARPED TOUR : GREEN DAY AND BILLY TALENT. GREEN DAY HAS TO BE THERE. PEOPLE WANTS TO SEE THEM FOR THAT EVENT SINCE A COUPLE OF YEARS. AND THEY PRODUCED ONE OF THE BEST ALBUM OF THE YEAR. REGARDING BILLY TALENT, THIS BAND IS SO GOOD AND THEIR MUSIC IS SO PERFECT. PLEASE GET THEM FOR THIS YEAR (AT MONTREAL !) AND IT WILL BE ONE OF THE BIGGEST WARPED TOUR EDITION.

Posted by: Anonymous on January 27, 2005
sorry to say but NOFX probally wont be at 2005 Warped. Me First and The Gimme Gimmes probally will be. They usually switch up every year. They should get Bad Religion and the Bouncing Souls. They should also get The Suicide Machines to come on tour again!!!
Posted by: Anonymous on January 27, 2005
EMERY & HAWTHORNE HEIGHTS. . . .

Is AFI going to be there by any chance???
Posted by: Anonymous on January 31, 2005
Y does everyone want good charlotte and blink 182 and crap like that on tour? just givin warped tour a bad name...warped tour is about a punk show were people have fun and other things..not watch little kids run around to blink 182, good charlotte, or new found glory...get the bands that mean sumthin to the punk world like NOFX, Bad Religion,Suicide Machines, Lagwagon, Flogging Molly and many other bands too
Posted by: Anonymous on January 31, 2005
of course green day, blink and rancid aren't playing. travis and tim are in the transplants which is already confirmed and green day is on tour. and why would you want huge crowds drawn in by bands that don't fit the vibe? the place would be crawling with dumb kids who will ruin the atmosphere
Posted by: Anonymous on February 01, 2005
Woop! Can't wait for WT2005! I didn't go last year so my list includes: underoath, from autumn to ashes, from first to last, hawthorne heights, flogging molly, the used, finch... bring em' all!

Posted by: Anonymous on February 02, 2005
I just wanna get on the Warped Tour this year!! And I will thrash on the music of Lars Frederiksen, of course, and also the Transplants! and I hope I'll see everything but Greenday(so-so) and Good Charlotte(their music sounds like the Back Street Boys in their new single I just wanna Liiiive! ahah!) Well it's not that I don"t like the BSB ( I love em) but Good Charlotte have a punk style and they should not! No more ''Ijust wanna liiiive!''!!!!!!!!!!!! Grrr
