Warped Tour isn’t just any tour with some bands in it. It is one of the largest tours in the United States, which happens during the summer months. The tour has hosted artist such as, Eminem, Fall Out Boy, Katy Perry, All Time Low and Yellowcard.

The experience of Warped Tour is an exciting one. With eight stages featuring 70 different bands throughout the day, one has to wonder where they should begin enjoying the variety of music being played on Milwaukee’s Summerfest Grounds.

Everytime I Die, a metal band, had a strong guitar mixed with strong vocals when they performed.

Hard rock band, Of Mice & Men, had a bit more energy to their guitar and drums in addition to an energized crowd.

Breathe Carolina, an electro pop/rock band, had a lot to offer. Their song “Last Night (Vegas)” certainly had a good ring to it. They closed with their hit single “Blackout” which was a good way to go out with a bang.

We the Kings, an alternative rock/pop band started the song Skyway Avenue from their self titled album We the Kings then went onto play a few more songs until they got to a fan favorite Check Yes Juliet, in which many in the crowd went nuts.  Taking Back Sunday was received well playing many of their hits from over the years. Kieth from Everytime I Die came on to perform with them for a song. Yellowcard, came on played many of their hits and one from their new album “Southern Air” which came out on Aug. 14.

Pierce the Veil, a rock band from San Diego, California certainly had the crowd roaring with excitement as they were enjoying the clear, energy filled guitar and bass combined with the vocals.

All Time Low, a band that needs no introduction to people who have been to Warped Tour, or have seen them on another tour, has a tendency to really know how to put on a show. They immediately started with a fan favorite “Damned if I Do You (Damned if I Don’t),” then went onto to play several more favorites, including “Jasey Rae,” and their new single, “The Reckless and the Brave” for their new album to be released sometime this fall. All Time Low by far had the craziest and wildest crowd filled with the most applause at the end of each song.
