Second music festival cancels at Shrine on Airline
METAIRIE, La. — Vans Warped Tour has canceled its scheduled its one-day show that was supposed to happen at the Shrine on Airline June 28.
Tour organizer Kevin Lyman announced the cancellation in a video on the Warped Tour Facebook page.
We’ve tried everything possible, but we live in crazy times and crazy things are going on,” he said.
He did not give specifics on why the concert won’t take place, but he did say it was due to “circumstances beyond our control.”
