Warped Tour 2010 has 40 tour stops in the United States and three dates in Canada.
Christofer Drew of NeverShoutNever hurt his foot badly during the Mansfield, Massachusetts stop of the tour on July 13, 2010. Drew was jumping off of a speaker and landed wrong on his foot. Drew says, "You know, I was jumping around the other day, and I--and we were in Boston or something like that, and I jumped off this high speaker, landed on my foot wrong, and it shattered under the pressure of the fall." Drew continued the tour with the injury.
26-year-old Curtis DeForest of Wichita, Kansas died during the Bonner Springs stop of the tour on August 2, 2010. The cause of death is currently unknown but still under investigation by authorities.
Following the Denver stop of the tour on August 8, 2010, Pennywise members Fletcher Dragge and Randy Bradbury were involved in an incident with Alesana on the band's RV. Dragge and Bradbury were both intoxicated and mistakenly entered an empty RV believing it belonged to The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band. Alesana returned to find the men and asked them to leave. A scuffle broke out leading to police using a taser on Dragge and arresting him for assault. Alesana dropped all charges. Fletcher followed suit by issuing an apology while taking full blame for the incident and both sides hold no bad feelings towards each other.
