In an recent interview with Examiner.com, John Reese — producer for Uproar, Mayhem and Warped tours — has stated that the annual end of summer tour will be scrapped for 2015.
In the interview Reese stated:
“It doesn’t look like it’s going to happen this year. We just couldn’t get the right acts together. Rock music is tough right now. There’s not a ton of headliners. It takes a lot of money to break rock bands, and with the record labels being where they are, it’s getting tougher and tougher on the rock and metal side to come up with new headliners that make us feel great. That’s the toughest part of the job, finding talent that wants to do it and that makes sense to play on it and draw people in.”
“…and the only thing that’s not happening this year is Uproar. Which is sad, but as I stated before we just couldn’t put the right elements together to make it happen.”
This is reminiscent of 2014 when Carnival Of Madness had to scrap their tour which is hoping to make a return in 2015.
