Then, Good Charlotte announced they were canceling their remaining summer dates for personal reasons. 

The band made the announcement on social media a few days ago. 

“GC fans everywhere, it is with great disappointment that we have to announce the cancellation of our remaining summer tour dates. This year has been one of the most challenging years for our band, as we’ve been dealing with a very personal and unexpected loss in our family. We have to take the time to focus on our families and our well being.”

“Thank you for the love and support you’ve given us, we hope you know the genuine appreciation we have for you all. We hope to see you all very soon. Love, GC”

The Warped Tour date was included in those canceled dates, so Lyman decided to let fans know that even though Good Charlotte won’t be there, someone will be to fill their spot. 

First, Warped Tour tweeted that the tickets for the dates were low and told fans that the band wouldn’t be there. However, they said that Doll Skin, The Aquadolls, Farewell Winters and Lighter Burns were added. 

Later that day, Lyman told fans that he worked something out with “some old friends” to replace Good Charlotte. He later added that they formed in 1994.

Needless to say, this lead to tons of fan speculation. People guessed nearly every band in the book from the Foo Fighters to My Chemical Romance. Check out some of their guesses below.

Warped Tour’s 25th Anniversary shows have been going on all summer, with only the California dates left. You can see the two dates below and get lineup information and more here.

Dates:

07/20 – Mountain View, CA @ Shoreline Amphitheatre
07/21 – Mountain View, CA @ Shoreline Amphitheatre

Vans Warped Tour has found a unique way for fans to take part of the festival home with them while also doing something good for the environment. 

Warped Tour has teamed up with Rossel Company to create up-cycled bags. 

The bags are created from the tent tops and old stage scrims and a portion of the sales go toward I Love A Clean SD, which promotes a healthy environment in the San Diego area. 

Each bag is completely unique due to the way its made, so they’re definitely a cool way to give back to the environment and treat yourself to something nice.
