Valiant Entertainment is teaming with The Vans Warped Tour to showcase Valiant’s iconic characters for the 2017 tour’s “comic book” theme.
Valiant characters will be seen on posters, promotional pieces, merchandise, and more at each of the 40 tour dates across the United States. All of this promotional artwork was designed by Valiant artist Kano!
Along with promotional material, Valiant will also have exhibits at select Vans Warped Tour locations with a mobile comic book art installation and appearances by major comic creators.
Each of Valiant’s appearances on the 2017 Vans Warped Tour will benefit The Keep a Breast Foundation that aims to empower young people with breast health education and support.
“For 23 years, the Vans Warped Tour has been such a great platform for bands, brands, and creative minds,” said Vans Warped Tour® Founder Kevin Lyman. “It’s always fun to be able to do collaborations, and this partnership with Valiant Entertainment is very special from a creative standpoint.”
“This is a groundbreaking partnership on many levels, and we’re honored and excited to call the Vans Warped Tour our newest partner,” said Russell A. Brown, President of Consumer Products, Promotions & Ad Sales for Valiant Entertainment. “The Vans Warped Tour is an institution, and comics are the next logical extension of their hugely influential footprint. There’s a huge reciprocity between music and comics, and we were happy to find that there are just as many fans in their camp as there are in ours. We look forward to doing awesome things together in 2017 and beyond.”
The 2017 Vans Warped Tour kicks off on June 16th in Seattle, Washington and wraps up on August 6th in Southern California.
The tour is offering everyone who buys the first 500 tickets at each show a digital download of the Official Vans Warped Tour 50-song compilation as well as offering those 500 tickets at the lowest price available.
