|Warped Tour concert chronology|
Warped Tour 1998 was the 4th edition of the Vans Warped Tour. The 34-date North American tour began on in Phoenix, Arizona, and ended August 9, 1998 in Austin, Texas. Four concerts were held in Canada, with the rest in United States locations. After the North American tour ended, Warped Tour traveled overseas for the first time, with a modified lineup appearing in Europe, Australia and Japan.
The tour featured four stages — two main and two side — and included a "World Warped Stage" sponsored by ASCAP/ Ernie Ball that showcased local bands. The band lineups and running orders on the stages differed between dates. The tour headliners included Bad Religion, Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Deftones, NOFX, Rancid, Reverend Horton Heat, and The Specials. A 2011 Warped Tour retrospective article in the Dallas Observer deemed the 1998 lineup one of the four best ever Warped Tour lineups in its 17-year history up to that point. Other attractions featured on the tour included skateboarding demonstrations by pros such as Steve Caballero, Neal Hendrix, Andy Macdonald, Mike Frazier, and Jen O'Brien. A tour documentary, Punk Rock Summer Camp, was released on VHS in 1999 and on DVD in 2003.
The July 18 concert in Somerset, Wisconsin at Float Rite Park was merged with the heavy metal festival Ozzfest for the first and only time, resulting in a 12-hour, six-stage, 48-band event called "Ozz Gets Warped" with attendance first reported as 60,000 and later as 39,000.
