I bought two tickets off eBay for 105 and cant go now :(

Anyone want to buy two tickets for 80?

I'm gutted :(:( Saw The Offspring in Brixton Academy a few years ago and it was amazing, been a fan for years.

i still feel rough, too much beer, jager and JD. i was the one who started the mosh pit right at the front to the right of the stage. i apologise now if anyone got trampled but would do it all over again if i could!

i must say that rival schools and broadway calling were fantastic.

I had the best evening ever, they were really great. The only thing that spoiled an otherwise perfect night was the tremendous heat. I have been to the Academy many times before and never noticed it that hot before. But all that being said I would do it again just to see them perform. Amazing:)

I was dripping in sweat, it was unbelievable. I really regretted not wearing shorts to it.

Here's some photos from the gig that i took!:)

Hey alison - I was at Manchester gig too - but judging by your photos, I was at the other side of the stage. Looks like you got close to the front. We had to wait in the pub opposite for one of our mates to turn up so the place was jammed before we got in. Good night though! Nice photos.

Btw - is it me or is dex looking chubbier than the Michelin man in your pictures? :p

Rumour has it that he become addicted to chocolate hob-nobs after his last trip to the UK.

I reckon the evidence speaks for itself!?!
