Show Review: Warped Tour 2012 (Dallas, TX)

Warped Tour 2012 (Dallas, TX) - July 3, 2012 at Gexa Energy Pavilion

Check out my photos from the day here

Itís safe to say I was more excited for Warped Tour this year than Iíve ever. Since I wasnít able to experience the early 2000s glory years, 2012 was set to be my glory year for Warped Tour. With bands like New Found Glory, Yellowcard, and Taking Back Sunday on the bill, this was the best of the best.

The day started off heavy with Sleeping With Sirens. Having only been a casual...[read more]

Great review!

How close could you get to the Acoustic Basement? Is it like a tented sort of thing, or what?

I imagine it may be a little different at every venue, but yeah, it was just a one room tent. You could be right in front of the band if you get there early. It was a really cool addition to Warped

Great review. Yellowcard, Senses Fail, The Ghost Inside, Polar Bear Club, and Miss May I were my favorites of my warped. I didn't get to see them play, but isn't the vocalist of Jamie's Elsewhere doing cleans as well as bass for Of Mice?

I didn't realize you were from around here. I was definitely bummed that I couldn't go.

Why'd you miss TBS?

Aaron has left Jamie's Elsewhere if you shall believe his last tweet "Wishing the @Jamieselsewhere guys the best of luck in Japan. Even though I'm no longer with the band, I will always be team JE."

Maybe he will replace Shayley permanently?

Oh before I forget, great review! Wish I could see bands like SWS, OM&M and Pierce The Veil, even more after the way you describe them.

Great review. Warped Tour 2012 really reminded me why I love this festival so much. I've been trying really hard to make it out to a second date since my date was on the opening weekend (Denver). Doesn't look like it will happen because of logistics and scheduling so I'm planning on doing multiple dates in 2013. I just hope the lineup is as good as this year.

That dude sitting next to Cyrus...wasn't he a roadie for ETID? Same dude involved in the hilarious "tech beef" segment of the DVD?

Just FYI, this was not the first time Yellowcard played Warped in 10 years. They were on it in 2007, which is the last one I attended, and I'm sure with their success played many other times between 2002 and now... not really sure where you got that info from.
