    When the Vans Warped Tour last year announced that 2018 will mark its “final, full cross-country run,” fans expected a swan song for the ages. And they will get what they wanted. Yesterday, the six-week tour announced its very last line-up, with Sum 41, Less than Jake and Taking Back Sunday on the bill.

    Other headliners on the tour include Bowling for Soup, Frank Turner, The Used, Silverstein and Underoath. The line-up—special guests have yet to be announced—reflects the Warped Tour’s evolution: from a bastion of ’90s-era skate punk to the cradle of emo to a breeding ground of chart-topping bands.

    “What has always made me proud,” said founder Kevin Lyman in an emotional farewell note, “was when I read that Warped was the most diverse show on the summer, where you could find Eminem and Ice-T on the same stages as Sevendust, Pennywise and 7 Seconds.”

    The tour will stretch from Pomona, California, on June 21 all the way to West Palm Beach, Florida, on August 5. Tickets go on sale March 4.
