The Rockstar Energy Drink Taste of Chaos Tour 2016

The Rockstar Energy Drink Taste of Chaos Tour 2016

For the first time since 2009, the Rockstar Energy Drink Presents Taste of Chaos tour is back — featuring Dashboard Confessional with Taking Back Sunday plus special guests Saosin with Anthony Green and The Early November. Additional special guests include one-night-only performances by Saves The Day (6/17 – Holmdel, NJ), Motion City Soundtrack (6/18 – Wantagh, NY) and The Starting Line (6/19 – Philadelphia, PA).

Originally launched in 2005 by Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman and John Reese (co-founder of Mayhem Festival, Oddball Festival), Rockstar Taste Of Chaos went on to hit 20 countries around the world over its five-year run, helping grow the careers of dozens of bands. Kevin Lyman comments on the 2016 relaunch, “It has been awhile, but I had always hoped that the Rockstar Taste of Chaos tour had a chance to come back. That time is now, and I am excited that the artists thought it was time too.” John Reese adds, “After the very successful Taste of Chaos destination festival in San Bernardino, CA in October 2015, we felt that we wanted to bring a number of those amazing bands around the country.”

Pre sale begins Wednesday, March 16. Tickets will go on sale starting Friday, March 18th — join us with a ‘Hands Down’ – Ultimate Dashboard Confessional Experience and enjoy a private, acoustic performance by Dashboard Confessional, exclusive merchandise and much more!
