Vans Warped tour organizers are offering fans discounted tickets via an Internet pre-sale. Beginning Tuesday (Feb. 10), users can log onto www.vanswarpedtour.com at 6 p.m. EST. During the pre-sale, tickets will be priced at $23.74 each. Included with the purchase is a two-disc compilation album featuring acts on the circuit, and a 25-cent donation to the Hollywood Heart charity.

The sale reverts to regular pricing--$25.00 per ticket plus Ticketmaster surcharges--after the bargain tickets sell out. The number of discounted tickets vary per date, and the CD is only available to those who buy tickets in advance.

Additionally, Fuse has signed on to be the tour's exclusive broadcast partner. The music TV channel will run fest programming tie-ins, including a two-hour 10th anniversary Warped Tour concert special in September.

Headliners for the 2004 edition, launching June 25 at the Reliant Center in Houston, include Bad Religion, New Found Glory, Good Charlotte, NOFX, Thursday and Simple Plan. The eight-week Vans Warped trek wraps Aug. 19 at the Brockton Fairgrounds in Boston.
