Lostprophets’ fans to influence Warped Tour setlist for Teenage Cancer Trust

By October 23, 2012 January 16th, 2022 Culture, London, News

Lostprophets are giving fans the unique opportunity to add to their set-list at November’s sold out Warped Tour UK. There are five songs to choose from viatext vote (with proceeds going to Teenage Cancer Trust). The song with the highest number of votes will be performed by the band as they close Warped Tour UK on Saturday, November 10 at North London’s iconic Alexandra Palace. The performance will be filmed exclusively by Punktastic and hosted on the site for fans to watch, so everyone can vote for their favourite.

The song options include ‘Lucky You’, which the band have only played once back in 2004 and ‘Broken Hearts…’ which was last performed live in 2008. Guitarist Mike Lewis says: “All of the songs we picked – some of them we’ve only played once or twice live over the past 12 years – they’re tracks that a lot of people ask us to play. We figured it would be a big deal for us to choose these because it’s finally giving our fans the chance to dictate which one they truly want to hear most. Teenage Cancer Trust is such an amazing charity. Everyone in the band has had someone close to them deal with a cancer-related tragedy at some point, so it’s a cause that’s really important to us. We’re happy to support it in whatever way we can.”

The full song listings and text numbers are as follows:

LPS01 – ‘Lucky You’

LPS02 – ‘Darkest Blue’

LPS03 – ‘Broken Hearts, Torn Up Letters and the Story of A Lonely Girl’

LPS04 – ‘A Million Miles’

LPS05 – ‘Weapon’

To choose a song text the code you want to 70300. For example, for ‘Lucky You’ text LPS01 to 70300. Fans can vote as many times as they like. Entries will be counted up until midday on Monday, November 5 and the winning song will be announced on Tuesday 6. Text messages cost £1 plus your standard network rate. Teenage Cancer Trust will receive £1 from every text.

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for the six young people aged between 13 and 24 diagnosed with cancer every day.
