Since I joined the band, we’ve played 800+ shows! How many Passafire shows have you been to? How many states have you traveled to see us? Check out our master list of shows since 2011:
Here’s a shot from my 47th Passafire show. We were in Cuyahoga Falls, OH on the 2011 Vans Warped Tour. Angelo Moore from Fishbone joined us on stage. What a crazy summer! R.I.P. Warped Tour. - @goozekeys | 📸: Dasha Titlebaum
**long post incoming** It’s really sad making this post even though we all knew it was coming. But today was the last day of the last cross-country #vanswarpedtour . I started kinda late, my first Warped Tour was in 2011 in Orlando, but it changed everything for me.
Without Warped Tour, I never would have gotten the guts to jump headfirst into concert photography. I never would have had a goal to meet, I never would have had a chance to meet the people I most want to work with, and I never would have met some of the friends that I have today. I would not be who I am today without this event, and it’s weird to think about that.
Anyway, thank you @vanswarpedtour. Thank you @kevinlyman for keeping this crazy thing going for so long.
Enjoy some warped tour photos from throughout the years. (All the way back to 2011)
I’m legit bummed I missed #warpedtour2018 yesterday and had to work instead. Shooting warped has been such a fun experience and getting to do it with my best friends has been awesome too. All of the backstage shenanigans and crowd surfing of my younger days will be missed dearly. Here’s the dudes in 3oh3! Doing their thang a few years ago. A few times they were nice enough to come out and grab drinks with us after shows. It was always a party and now I’ll keep it in the nostalgic part of my mind ☺️🖤📷 #cheers#goingtomissyouwarped#3oh3#warpedtour#warped#warpedtour2011#goodolddays
Sap post #2 . Today with a heavy heart I got to say goodbye to @vanswarpedtour 💚 It was bittersweet watching the thing i used to look forward to the most out of the year, run its last stop through Dallas. (Even the sky cried today!) I will never forget all the amazing memories growing up and going to Warped through highschool and college. All the bands we met and saw, all the sweat and tears, all the friends we made, and volunteering for free wristbands.
Its the end of an era for Warped Tour as well as for myself as I move from DFW. So thank you to everyone for all the amazing memories its been a ride 💚 (also for some reason i cant find any photos from 2013, just all my merch 🙈) #vanswarpedtour#foreverwarped#thankyou#warpedtour2009#warpedtour2010#warpedtour2011#warpedtour2012#warpedtour2013#throwback#bittersweetgoodbyes
🎶🖤Warped Tour Memories🖤🎶🏁 In honor of the very last Warped Tour in the Bay yesterday, here’s some pix from my Warped adventures over the years. I didn’t go often, because it takes a whole hell of a lot to get me to all day festivals, but I am glad I got to experience Warped Tour several times throughout its run. It was always hot, crowded, and dirty, but seeing some of my favorite bands with more of my favorite bands with other people much like myself made for some good times. So thank you Warped Tour, I will never forget you! 🏁#farewellwarpedtour#warpedtour2018#warpedtour2014#warpedtour2011#warpedtour2008#warpedtour2006
📍 @vanswarpedtour circa 2011.
Throw back to my first warped. Even though it’s bitter sweet I’m ready for July to celebrate the last one. 🤘🏼So, here’s a poor 17 year old Hunter who didn’t prepare well and drove up the DAY of and also drove home after. Yes, that’s a glitter peace sign and a belly button ring (🤦🏻♀️) way before big side piece tattoo days. Wore flip flops because she was an idiot and passed out during ADTRs set because of the heat. 🤷🏻♀️ ya gotta learn somehow right.
Here’s to the band that change it all for me. The band that suddenly become my favorite when I least expected it. The band I’ve seen in concert four times, Warped Tour at Tinley Park 2011, Right Back At It Again Tour at The Rave Milwaukee 2013, Parks & Devastation Tour at Sonic Boom 2014 and Summerfest in Milwaukee 2017. All four shows have been equally amazing and unforgettable. I’ve created so many memories from these shows and I wish I could make to another one soon!! They are a band I listen to when I’m happy, sad, frustrated, content, excited, pretty much all the time. I’ve grown to fall in love with the band and I’ve memorized probably 98% of all the song lyrics. And here they are on their 15 year Tour, Here’s to you guys, thank you for being one of the greatest bands there is and making amazing music for us fans. I love you guys 💚💚 #adtr#adaytoremember#adtr15#adtr15yeartour#ifitmeansalottoyou#ravemilwaukee#tinleypark#sonicboom2014#warpedtour2011#memories#lovethem#favoriteband
I guess it’s time to hop on the band wagon. I feel obligated to - given the half a decade I spent sweating it out under tents, in vans & buses, on and off stages. At a point in my life, Warped Tour defined me. It undoubtedly made me stronger, smarter, more patient, more understanding & inspired. I am forever in debt to Kevin Lyman and all of the people who helped me be a part of the tour.
Though I chose to end my time on the tour, I am still deeply saddened to hear that next year will be the last year. Maybe it’s for the best, but it still hits me in the feels. Especially when I think of all the amazing friends I made from across the world because of Warped. #throwbackthursday
