With a 1955 VW Marley bus stocked with Marley headphones and a summer’s worth of sunscreen, the House of Marley’s Chris Hurley will be giving us a behind-the-scenes look at life On the Road with the 2012 Vans Warped Tour.
June 23 • San Francisco, CA
Hello San Francisco! What a beautiful city, and what a beautiful day. Today’s show is already sold out (20,000 tickets sold)! That means we’re gonna be busy. Yesterday we sold more earbud headphones than any other day on the tour. Hopefully we can keep that momentum moving today. With the capacity crowd and this awesome weather, I think we can.
June 24 • Ventura, CA
Today, the 2012 Vans Warped Tour stops in Ventura, California, just south of Santa Barbara. The venue today is probably going to be one of the most scenic we see this summer. The House of Marley stage is facing directly toward the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Cruz Islands.
Later today, Mod Sun will be on the HOM stage with a very special guest: Cisco Adler from Shwayze. Another great day of music and another great day to spread the word about #LiveMarley and all the amazing things we’re doing at the House of Marley!
June 27 • Chula Vista, CA
Today is our last day in California. We’re in Chula Vista, which is about ten miles off the Mexican border.
It’s such a beautiful day, we better enjoy it while it lasts. Starting tomorrow, we head east into Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, all of which will be unreasonably hot, I’m sure. Speaking of which, I’m currently writing this from the air-conditioned comforts of the tour bus we share with a few other sponsors. I’m going to soak up as much of this as I can before we hit the triple digit temperatures of the Southwest.
At 4:45, New Found Glory will be coming by the Marley tent to hangout and sign stuff for their fans. Great band, great guys, great day to visit the House of Marley on the 2012 Vans Warped Tour!
June 28 • Glendale, AZ
I’m feeling hot, hot, HOT! It’s 8:35 am and it’s already 95 degrees outside! We are being warned that temperatures could reach as high as 110 degrees. The kids coming today must really love these bands, because these weather conditions are in no way enjoyable.
One “cool” thing that did happy this morning was stumbled upon a video blog from the 2012 Vans Warped Tour band, We The Kings. Yesterday in Chula Vista, Charles and Danny from We The Kings came by to hangout at the VW Marley bus. They were so ecstatic about the Marley headphones and our values of being Earth-friendly and sustainable that they picked up a couple pairs of Zion and Conqueror in-ear headphones. And as I mentioned, they even gave us a nice shout-out in their video blog, Internet Killed TV. Check it out below!
June 29 • Las Cruces, NM
Today, the 2012 Vans Warped Tour is making a stop in Las Cruces, home of New Mexico State University. We’re bracing for another hot day, but it shouldn’t be nearly as intense as yesterday in Arizona. That’s good because my House of Marley tourmates, Taylor and Craig have been working out here nonstop so far today. Seems like New Mexico has a lot of love for Marley! Taylor’s been taking some awesome pics of all our new friends, and Craig has been hooking everybody up with the Marley in-ear headphones. And lest we forget the bands on the House of Marley stage are killing it, day in and day out, regardless of the heat! Can’t stop, won’t stop.
