About the Extreme Tour

The Extreme Tour is a tour with a mission.

The Artists and Volunteers of the Extreme Tour are coming to bring a rallying cry of freedom. Freedom from ignorance. Freedom from seclusion. Freedom from violence. Freedom from the destructive messages, themes, and agendas of a machine bent on inhuman profit.

In our time, much of the Industry behind Rock and Roll culture has advocated a costly and ruinous message of self-gratification by glorifying hatred, drug use, alcoholism, and promiscuity. Because the Industry has found this destructive message to be profitable, as a whole, it has ignored the great social cost. The Extreme Tour Movement marks the beginning of a change in that agenda.

The Extreme Tour will bring an alternative voice to your community this summer. The Extreme Tour will present a proposal of change. This change that starts with the artists and performers involved in this movement. The participants in the Extreme Tour discard the destructive messages and lifestyles advocated and glorified by Rock and Roll's past, and embrace a new message of hope.

Artists submitting must be positive! No profanity or derogative lyrics.

The tour is sponsored by FreshPark Skate Equipment, Nextsport Skate and Scooters, Phonetic Propoganda Clothing, and EMC Board Co.
