After one more incredible summer of amazing music and unforgettable memories, Vans Warped Tour has finally come to an end. Pennywise had the honor of closing out the festival and playing the final song of Warped Tour.
Emotions were high as bands headed into their final day of the festival, many taking the time to thank VWT founder Kevin Lyman for so many amazing summers and opportunities.
While bands have no idea of their set times until the morning of, many speculated on what the final song of Vans Warped Tour would be.
In a recent interview with AP, many bands revealed that “Bro Hymn” by Pennywise was their pick for the ‘National Anthem of Warped Tour.’
“I’m gonna call it right now,” Sébastien Lefebvre of Simple Plan told AP. “I feel like they will be closing the last Warped Tour with that song.”
“So I’m thinking Pennywise is going to play last, they’re going to play that song “Bro Hymn” at the very, very end of their set and everybody that’s on the grounds is going to sing like crazy people. There’s going to be ugly criers in the front row, there’s going to be ugly criers in the backstage too because people are going to be sad this thing is over, but I believe that is the anthem of Warped Tour.”
And he wasn’t the only one who called Pennywise for the the final VWT set. Check out even more bold predictions, below!
Pennywise confirmed via Twitter this morning that they would indeed be closing out the final date of the iconic festival.
