Prepare to crowd surf. The Warped Tour revealed its lineup today. The long-running tour will return to the Ford Idaho Center Amphitheater on Thursday, Aug. 11 — the first Idaho visit for Warped since 2011.
Seven stages will showcase 71 bands. Highlights include Falling in Reverse, Four Year Strong, Less Than Jake, New Found Glory, Reel Big Fish, Sleeping with Sirens, Everytime I Die, Crown the Empire, Motionless in White, Whitechapel, We the Kings, Yellowcard, Waka Flocka Flame, Mayday Parade and Chelsea Grin.
Before Warped left the Gem State because of softening ticket sales, Warped had enjoyed a 14-year run at the Idaho Center Amphitheater. (And one year before that at Garden City’s Les Bois Park.) So Warped fans would be wise to support this show and keep the 50-plus-band rock, punk and skate-culture festival coming back to the Boise market.
Tickets are $39.50 advance, $45 day of show, at ICTickets.
