Apparently there's a lot of fan overlap between Weezer and Warped Tour.
Vans Warped Tour has announced that it will change the date of its Arizona stop from August 2 to August 4 in order to avoid conflicting with the Weezer/Panic! At The Disco concert scheduled for August 2 at Ak-Chin Pavilion.
Fans who bring ticket stubs from the Weezer concert will be able to purchase tickets on-site at Warped Tour for $35.
In a statement, Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman said that the move was due to popular demand.
“Unfortunately Vans Warped Tour and Panic! At The Disco & Weezer were scheduled on the same day in Phoenix this year. We have heard from many people who wanted to go to both shows, so we have been able to re-schedule our Warped date to Thursday, August 4th. As a thank you we have also decided that you can bring your Panic! At The Disco/Weezer tickets to the box office on the 4th and your ticket will only be $35.00. Tickets remain on sale at select Journeys locations for $35.00.”
The event, after being held at Quail Run Park in Mesa for years, will take place at Phoenix Event and Sports Complex this year, located at 2209 North 99th Avenue.
