So I know this post is LONG overdue, but I have been super busy with assignments so I apologize to anyone who follows my work for not posting it earlier. I guess anything is better late than never? This year I attended not only the Orlando and Tampa dates of the Vans Warped Tour, but also the Dallas, San Antonio, and Houston dates in Texas. It was definitely an interesting experience for me because Texas has some of the largest Warped dates, but it is also the hottest experience ever. I spent most of my time doing photos for Sleeping With Sirens and Go Radio, and was able to capture a lot more in the process.
Another reason for me putting this all together now, is because I am realizing that I was one of the very small amount of people to be able to document Go Radio’s final show ever. If you have not heard, the band is (sadly) breaking up after the many amazing years that they have been putting out equally amazing music. If you would like to read the statement from the band it is on their facebook at https://www.facebook.com/goradio/posts/10151971530491803
Hopefully all of you will still support EVERYONE in the band and anything that Jason, Alex, Steven, and Matt do in the future, and please do not pass any judgements on them from the random stories or tales you will read elsewhere on the internet. If you enjoyed the band, then continue to enjoy their music and anything else they may all do in the future because they are all amazing people no matter what you read or hear. To Go Radio (If you guys even read this) I love you all and wish you ALL the best in your personal and musical endeavors in the future, and I look forward to seeing more from all of you soon.
Anyway, getting on with the part of me being a photographer… I am going to do this post a little bit different than usual. I am posting around 60 highlight photos here on the blog, and then I also have put up a gallery of over 400 photos on to the Photos By Chris Martin Facebook page. Please feel free to check them all out at the links below, like the fb page, and share the images via fb to your friends and such. Check out the highlights below and then check out all of the images from FL and TX on Facebook!
