Last Friday morning, huge crowds of people descended on the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, N.J., to bid goodbye to a beloved summer tradition: the Vans Warped Tour. On its last leg, the Warped Tour drew fans of all kinds. Some, who had faithfully attended year after year, were decked out in fishnets and 10-year-old band T-shirts soaked in nostalgia. Others, much younger and there for the first time, stood out in colorful cropped tops and body glitter. There were even a few families sprinkled in there, wearing matching death metal T-shirts.
It'll be a busy week for Chance the Rapper. He's finishing up the follow-up album to his Grammy-winning 2016 release "Coloring Book," which he says will be out in a few days. He's preparing to begin work on another album with Kanye West this month in Chicago. And he's producing and headlining a major multiact charity event, the Special Olympics 50th Anniversary concert Saturday at Northerly Island.
