Yesterday Kevin Lyman announced in an exclusive interview with Billboard that his legendary touring festival Warped Tour would be entering its final year. Throughout its 22 year history, Warped Tour has championed pop punk bands like Paramore and Blink-182, while always offering a bit of a surprise — Eminem and Katy Perry, amongst others, also are among the ranks of Warped Tour veterans.
After fan requests and a Buzzfeed article made the rounds of Twitter, it’s pretty clear that now more than ever, My Chemical Romance needs to plan some sort of reunion. While this may not end up to be the time or place for that – though we can always keep our fingers crossed – Lyman himself has quite a few hopes for the upcoming summer.
“It’d be lovely to have Eminem come back,” Lyman admitted. “It would be fun to have more recent bands like Fall Out Boy come back and play. It’d be super fun. All those bands from that era were welcome. Maybe Katy Perry wants to get back to her roots!”
