With a week until the 2015 Vans Warped Tour is slated to kick off their summer trek, organizers have revealed that the first day of the festivities are going to be broadcast live.
Those who might not be able to attend this year’s traveling rock show due to issues, will get the opportunity to watch 30 artists from this years line-up on four different stages from the comfort of their homes. The live broadcast will also feature backstage access as well as some behind-the-scenes footage.
The stream of the Pomona, CA stop on June 19 will go live at 11 a.m. PST (2 p.m. for those on the east coast) on Yahoo.
The list of artists who will be performing during the live broadcast can be seen below.
Faith No More have announced that they are teaming up with Yahoo! and Live Nation to broadcast one of their upcoming tour dates.
Tomorrow evening (May 8), Yahoo! will exclusively be streaming the band’s show at The Fillmore in Detroit beginning at 9:15 p.m. EDT.
This tour comes as a massive gift to fans in the United States who have been waiting years for this to happen. Since 2009 when the band reunited, they have not toured any U.S. cities. According to keyboardist Roddy Bottum, the U.S. was not exactly a high priority tour destination for them, so they toured elsewhere instead.
“We didn’t really care to do America, it wasn’t a big priority for us,” said Bottum.
“We wanted to do shows that made us happy and go to places that we wanted to go, and none of us had any desire to travel across America.”
While we feel like that’s kind of a burn, its nice to know that they changed their mind and have decided to tour the U.S. for some Spring stops with Le Butcherettes and then once again in late July with the newly reunited Refused.
