ATLANTIC CITY -

The punk rock show lives on.

The Vans Warped Tour will come to Atlantic City for two days in June to celebrate the tour’s 25th anniversary.

The music, sports and art festival will be held on the Atlantic City beach June 29 and 30 with more than 50 artists expected to perform. The list of performances will be announced March 1, the same day tickets go on sale to the general public. Ticket pre-sales begin on Feb. 28.

Last year’s Vans Warped Tour was said to be the last year of around-the-country tours. But event organizers said that the punk rock tour would return for special occasions.

Atlantic City is one of three cities to host the tour this year, and the only one on the East Coast. Other cities scheduled to host the event include Cleveland on June 8 and Mountain View, California July 20 and 21.

The Atlantic City shows will be produced by Live Nation in association with the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority and the city.
