Hey Dexter! I don't want to be blatant or anything, but I've got one question. There is a huge community of Slovak, Czech and Polish users from this BBS who attend your first gig here in Slovakia, so I just wanted to ask if it is possible to meet you somewhere around and make some photos. 5 minutes will be enough. Last year when you were in Czech Republic almost none of us could go, and considering that you don't mind meeting your fans it would be great if you could meet with us. Please do it for us, we all love you. Thanks for taking my post into consideration :)

Yes, we all from our countries have been thinking and pondering about this for a long time. Considering that *at least* Dexter reads these forums on some basis, I hope this thread will be rightfully understood and it will not be deleted or something :)

This is so true. Slavs are all into The Offspring. More than Americans probably. Not by number, but percentage.

I think we already produced huge ammount of activity (and posts) to get attention, but hell, we want more, a chance to see the band in some calmer spot, not squeezed in the crowd 20 metres from them :confused:

The point is we all know that The Offspring have many, many fans and 9 times out of 10 - almost every single one of them would love more than anything to meet Dexter and/or the entire band.

I thought you guys already had something semi already set up with Oxy?

dff_punk
07-16-2009, 02:39 PM
Yes, Oxy will come to the gig, but we can only hope if he will try to help us out in any way.. its not like he will come there with the band or something...

And Shank, I was expecting way more empathy from someone who has a picture of herself and Dexter in her avatar :p

actually I ALWAYS try to help..and shank has a point... everyone wants to meet them, or at least say they do... but it's almost always on their own terms "yeah they need to come to my country, and to my city, and I don't wanna wait more than 5 minutes"

Meeting 30 people at the same time is impossible anyway, unless it's a big "get in line you have 20 seconds to say hi get an autograph" organized meet n greet. I've helped fuckloads of people get autographs and shit by pointing the fans in the right direction of where they have to wait, or telling the band where they were waiting.

I've been to a large majority of the shows (if not every show) in the past 10 years which were close to where the big appeal comes from and the truth is, even if there were fans that gathered around to try and meet the band, they usually left after 30 minutes. After rock for people we waited for about an hour and half, and during the whole thing I saw 0 fans at the backstage entrance, everyone had left. Even the fire works didn't arouse any interest. Although now that I think of it the backstage entrance was a bit tricky to get to.. even so.

I wish I could help everyone, but the truth is I only dare help people I know I can trust.. I can't risk taking some psycho idiot backstage who'll act up, and do something really stupid. I know it sucks but at least I'm honest an open about it (most of the people who hover around these boards, who have that kind of pull won't talk about this stuff). Plus the large marjority of the people who ask me to help wouldn't trust me with a dead cat let alone something like this, which adds to the duality.

Bottom line: those that have the endurance and make the sacrifice of waiting patiently and going to a few gigs have a near 100% success ratio of meeting them getting a picture and an autograph at least. Those that go to one gig, get bored of waiting and go and try to get laid 15 minutes after the band leaves the stage... not so much :D

Here's an idea, let's meet up before the show, and I'll try and find out what options there could be.. but there are some very specific limitations to this sort of thing, and people who have an issue with that should exclude themselves. If you want to discuss this in further detail we should do it some place private, but let's stop the flaming and arguing, and especially this emotional black mail.. it's not nice.

Okay dude, thanks for all the help and support. If anything sounded too harsh from our side, I am sorry and I completely understand. My idea is that at some point on saturday we will all meet up. We will discuss the "when and where" someplace else(gotta think where, some social group maybe, or even some place on the net excluded from the BBS).

My advice would be that if you can't get something planned, there is almost always a group waiting by the buses after the show to meet them. Obviously, they don't actually ride the buses for the most part, but thats where they would know to find you.

Me, Randy, and about 30 other people waited for more than an hour to try to meet them after the charlotte show, but then scotty (awesome aussie guy) gave us the unfortunate news that they had to catch a plane and didn't have any time left at the venue to come out and see us. This may be the case at that show. It happens pretty often, but maybe you guys will get lucky.

slagod
07-17-2009, 04:08 AM
Yes, we have to get contacts from each other.
Other thing, we also should make the private forum for meet&greet

That's pretty much exactly what happened to me, too. I managed to catch a glimpse of Dexter as he got into his van, but that was it.

Look at the thread Berlin show - there were only 10 places
and there weren't any arguing who would meet and greet and who not

From Poland - me, my sister Olciak (also present on BBS)

07-30-2009, 07:24 AM
LOL Olciak :D Funny word.
Now let me think... :rolleyes:
Slovakia - holland25, dff_punk, Lucy, dexterone, Tomasisko, JANNY, mrs_hollandova
Czechia :D - 2 people I think

Shank, we all know that almost every fan would love to meet the band, you've had your time with them, I know how awesome that must have been for you, don't you think that other fans would want to experience that, too?
And Oxygene, I spent more than 10 hours in front of the hotel to try to meet the band and I did not, it hurts me to know that in the concerts you went to, if the fans wanted to meet the band, all they had to do was wait a couple of hours... I wish I'd had this opportunity in the concert I went to. :(

I know you met Dexter and Noodles only, but you know what I meant by saying that... It must have been awesome to meet Dexter and Noodles, other fans just want to have some sort of experience like that. I know that not everyone is lucky like some of the BBSers here, but they HAVE to try, don't they?
You wouldn't have met Dexter and Noodles if you hadn't tried.

PS -- You met Noodles, I have enough reason to envy you for the rest of my life. :P

I wouldn't know about that.. hotels aren't a good place to meet them I don't think. The best time to meet them is an hour or two after the show, when they unwind.

In Belo Horizontel they left from the venue like, 30 minutes after the concert ended... It was a big festival, and the security was horrible, the security guards were hostile. I tried to ask them, but they wouldn't answer.
