Warped Tour Founder Kevin Lyman has responded to Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch’s comment over Islander‘s “lame” removal from Warped Tour.
Islander were recently removed from Vans Warped Tour after the band’s vocalist Mikey Carvajal dove into the drum set that the band was using during their set on the tour, damaging it.
Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch responded with his opinion on the matter, sharing that Islander’s removal from the tour was lame.
Band gets kicked off Alt/punk/hard core tour for being too wild? Not even a warning? WILD is what Vans Warped Tour has been all about for decades! L A M E
Kevin Lyman responded to Welch’s comment, bringing up a question of his own.
“I would ask Brian ‘Head’ Welch, if an opening act trashed Korn‘s gear on stage, how long they would be kept on the tour? Just wondering.”

Welch responded to Lyman’s tweet, stating that he “respectfully disagreed” with the outcome.
No offense, wasn’t blaming you… didn’t even know if Warped kicked em off, or the stage sponsor.
I see your point, but still respectfully disagree w/outcome.@VansWarpedTour bands are chaotic, there should have been back up gear ??LOL
Thanks for all the years!
