VANS Warped Tour – Portland OR : August 12 2016

The four of us trucked it down to Portland for The Vans Warped Tour yesterday. We originally had tickets for the show in Auburn WA., but found out that Guns N’ Roses was also performing that night in Seattle, so we had to see our Auburn Warped tickets and buy for Portland the following day. We have see the show 4 years in a row and hope to be able to see it for many years in to come. It is such a great experience with all the great bands, food, merchandise and of course people watching. The only problem with this year was the heat. It was over 90 degrees and as these shows are held in parking lots, there is typically no shade and is was no different this year at the Expo Center (parking lot) in Portland. We saw many dehydrated kids having to be carried off on stretchers by the very busy emergency response folks.

We all had a great time. We were able to see see most of the bands we wanted to before getting overwhelmed with heat and having to leave. We were able to see Tsunami Bomb, From Ashes to New, We the Kings, Veil of Maya, Motionless in White, Ice Nine Kills and Set it Off. Unfortunately with the conflict in sets, we were not able to see Falling in Reverse and we couldn’t see Issues because we were just too damn hot.
