Lynman then proceeded to express his nostalgia about finally ending one of his most successful platforms, for the scene of hardcore and pop-punk: “Though the tour and the world has changed since ’95, the same feeling of having the ‘best summer ever’ will live on through the bands, the production teams, and the fans that come through at every stop.”
