According to some reports, over 60 000 people gathered in Atlantic City, NJ to witness the second of this year’s three special Warped Tour dates to celebrate the 25th anniversary of this legendary touring music festival.
During the first day of the Atlantic City Warped weekend, the festival got unfortunately caught in a thunderstorm and for a brief while, the attendees even had to be evacuated outside of the premises, which also meant that some of the bands’ set times had to be postponed and the sets shortened. In a great Warped Tour spirit however, the fans stuck with their favorite bands and enjoyed every bit of the day, filled with music and other fun activities that the organizers had prepared for them.
Amongst the bands that the attendees were able to check out that weekend were for instance Blink 182, Good Charlotte, Bad Religion, Bowling For Soup, A Day To Remember, We The Kings, Less Than Jake, The Offspring or, of course, Simple Plan.
Our favorite Canadians once again presented an incredibly well-received set, making tens of thousands of people in the attendance jump up and down to some of their biggest hits – and since We The Kings were on the bill too, SP couldn’t miss the opportunity to invite their good friend Travis Clark to come and join them during ‘I’m Just A Kid’. Check out Simple Plan’s full setlist from Atlantic City below:
