July 4th would be the date when Vans Warped Tour would visit Wilmington, NC.
The city has surprised canceled the date and Vans Warped Tour has posted a statement detailing the cancelation and said "we were completely blind-sided by the city of Wilmington, NC and have tried to work through everything as fast as we could".

The city has also given a statement through their communication manager, saying "It is unfortunate we are unable to hold the Warped Tour at Legion Stadium as we had worked for months to try and make it happen. However, events held at city facilities must be hosted by groups with the ability to provide safety for concert goers as well as financial viability for ticket buyers. We hope we can host similar events here in the future."

Vans Warped Tour said on Facebook: 

"To all our fans - it is never easy to do this, but due to circumstances beyond our control we have been forced to cancel the 7.04 Wilmington, NC show.
From the Vans Warped Tour team, the bands, and all of our sponsors, we are truly sorry that this had to happen. We were completely blind-sided by the city of Wilmington, NC and have tried to work through everything as fast as we could.
We were working with HUKA Entertainment as our partner and the officials of the city of Wilmington, NC decided to not enter into a contractual agreement with Huka Production, LLC of North Carolina; instead the city pulled the permits that would allow us to have the show. This decision was based on a few concerns that included the venue's ability to meet the logistical challenge of our tour, as nothing of that large of a scale has been done at the sports complex before. Ultimately the decision of the city resulted in the Vans Warped Tour being tied up and has left us unable to carry out the show."

If you already had tickets you can either use them at another date, contact Ticketfly for a refund or mail your ticket to the address Vans Warped Tour shared in the Facebook event.
