Legendary US fest The Warped Tour has announced that it’ll be expanding its horizons from a one-off London date to a slew of five shows around the country. The Road To Warped will see a handful of amazing acts blaze a trail across some of the UK’s most intimate venues leading up to the main event at London’s Alexandra Palace on November 10th. Less Than Jake and New Found Glory will co-headline this mini-tour, taking turns to close out each gig. They’ll be joined by punk-rock faves Man Overboard and up and comers The Story So Far for shows in Nottingham, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow and Cardiff.
This news comes just weeks after Warped announced plans to return to the UK after a thirteen year absence. While Road To Warped features a stellar line up of acts, the primary show in London will feature performances from the likes of Lost Prophets, Bring Me The Horizon and A Loss For Words plus many, many other bands. Warped will arrive in Manchester on November 5th for an evening of pop-punk entertainment at one of the city’s best live music venues. Tickets are priced at £20 and are on sale now.
