Hello! I your fan from Russia. Very much I wait your new album and I had a question why you so are aimed at Japan? Why your concerts pass all there? And bonus DVD only in the Japanese edition... :(
Offspring Forever!!!

Welcome to the BBS.

Japan got approx. 127,433,494 inhabitants. So they need to make more concerts there. And I'm goddamn sure they will come to the rest of the world then :)

Yeah, I always wondered why Japan gets the bonus stuff, it's unfair :(
There are a lot of fans in other countries.
Also I was pissed off the one fact: I heard that in October The Offspring will visit Russia, of course I didn't know for sure, if they come or not, but I hoped so. Sadly It was a rumour...but moreover I was shocked when I found out that the band will be touring in October...in Japan. :(

Finland is bigger than Belgium. Atleast when it comes to landmass.

Why Japan gets bonus stuff:
read this (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1111183&postcount=15)

Why they already have a Japanese tour planned:
entered the chart at position 3: http://www.oricon.co.jp/rank/ea/w/1/
is currently at position 5: http://www.oricon.co.jp/rank/ea/w/
They are really popular there.
And tickets prices in Japan are 50 euro or 80 usd which might help planning too.

They'll probably announce dates for the rest of the world which are more difficult to plan in a few weeks (or maybe even sooner).

Who doesn't! Japan= crazy paradise

I'd do the same, make sure I'd play in the places I'd like the most first.

There were already a thread about this not too long ago…

The reason the Japanese edition has more features is because the North American “import” cd sells for far, far less then the regular Japanese edition of the CD, thus the Japanese divisions of the record company need to make money, thus they put on extra features to entice people to buy the Japanese edition. And it’s not just the Offspring who do this, most bands have extra songs/dvds on Japanese releases.

And the reason why they are touring Japan is that they have a lot of fans there, just look at how well RAFRAG is doing there.

maybe they can't sell tickets in north america anymore unless they are playing a festival or radio show?

They can sell tickets. They won't be playing stadium shows, but the band could easily sellout a good sized concert hall.

The band should totally hit up Turkmenistan, it's like an untapped market for them! They could probably even draw over a dozen people!
