NOFX warped tour

Vans Warped Tour wrapped up the last dates of their 25th Anniversary shows this weekend and fans were treated with a special NOFX cover band from members of Thrice, Sum 41 and more. 

To backtrack, NOFX were planned to be the last set of the festival but had some travel issues.

Also, earlier in the day, Warped Tour had to adjust some set times for the stage they were set to play.

Then, NOFX’s time came, but they were still jumping through all the aforementioned hoops to try to make it to the venue. The other musicians who played throughout the day didn’t want to leave fans hanging, so they began to cover songs by the band until they arrived about 30 minutes behind schedule. 

Those artists include YUNGBLUD, members of Circa Survive, the All-American Rejects, the Starting Line and more. You can see some clips of the impromptu cover band below.

After the show, some of the musicians who got to be a part of the insane moment shared what it felt like to fans. Thrice drummer Riley Breckenridge talked about covering the NOFX track way back in the day.

Also, NOFX shared some photos from the show and thanked fans for waiting for them to make it.
