One of the biggest travelling tours of the summer is well on its way, and those extra psyched for the Vans Warped Tour can get their hands on tickets earlier than the rest of the slackers. Presale tickets for every stop on the 44-date tour went on sale earlier this month, including all 5 Canadian stops.
Along with the presale tickets, buyers will receive one copy of the official "Vans Warped Tour 2005" CD for every ticket bought. SideOneDummy Records, which is an independent label based in Los Angeles, is releasing the compilation to the general public on June 7th. The track-list for the record has yet to be announced.
This year's Warped Tour features some big names on the line-up including My Chemical Romance, MxPx, Hawthorne Heights, The Transplants, and headliners, The Offspring. Then there's always HorrorPops, Tsunami Bomb, Funeral For A Friend, and Dead 60s. Some Canadian acts will also be joining in on the action, including Silverstein and Billy Talent.
To purchased Warped Tour 2005 presale tickets, go to www.warpedtour.com. After taxes and the rest of it, it's going to cost anywhere from $35 and upwards for each ticket.
