Bands Reportedly Not Allowed To Say “Mosh Pit” / “Wall Of Death” On Warped Tour Due To Lawsuits

Oli Sykes is claiming that he and Bring Me The Horizon are no longer allowed to say phrases like “mosh pit” and “wall of death” on Warped Tour due to the law. “Law” most likely means “Warped Tour policy” in this case due to potential lawsuits from families regarding their children who attend the show. Check out a tweet from Sykes below after the jump.

Update: It’s been brought to POZ’s attention that according to insurance policies, bands must refrain from using the terms mentioned above. This makes it easier for insurance companies to cover injured attendees of Warped Tour. Bands on the tour must sign a legally binding contract agreeing to these policies set by cities, venues, and insurance companies.
