Warped Tour

341 – [Daniel Glass Show]: Life on the Warped Tour, Pt. 2

In this podcast, Daniel continues his deep dive into Royal Crown Revue’s two-year saga on the fabled Warped Tour. Highlights include the making of Royal Crown’s award winning video for “Barflies at the Beach,” and the experience of playing on Warped’s rare international forays to Europe, Australia and Japan.

What’s covered in this session:

  • The unlikely story of how a swing band ended up on a punk rock tour for nearly two years.
  • How Royal Crown Revue’s song “Barflies at the Beach” won a week of heavy airplay on MTV.
  • Double decker tour buses, vicious eye infections, and gargantuan music festivals. All part of RCR’s experience on the 1997 European warped tour.
  • More of Daniel’s “Forrest Gump” moments, including the time that Josh Freese learned 311’s set in 20 minutes, and Travis Barker played his first show with Blink 182.
