Loudwire has announced the launch of what they’re hoping to be among the biggest shows of the 2018 summer tour season, Gen-X Summer, with Buckcherry, P.O.D., Lit, and Alien Ant Farm. See below for dates.
Now, I have to admit that this is a great idea from Loudwire, and the packaging is incredible, just look at the tour poster and the teaser trailer (which pays huge homage to Fast Times at Ridgemont High. However, other than Buckcherry, the lineup isn’t exactly something I would be interested in — and I like a lot of shit. But, we have to take it with a grain of salt; an inaugural touring festival is difficult to get bands to sign on to.
Nonetheless, this tour is going far and wide, so they got some traction somewhere. Is this something you’re interested in seeing? Yell off in the comments section below.
