Missed the soundwave festival, so it kinda sucks... and by the way: 23 hours of offspring is not an obsession(never enough of a good thing)

My ticket is for "floor 2", does any1 here no where that wud be?
my sister sed tht it's not just floor tickets and seat tickets cos the ground is all split up, so if your tickets is for the back of the standing area you can't go to the front. im hopeing floor two is in front of the stage cos I wanna catch a pik :p

no1ozfan
09-07-2009, 09:30 PM
It's just behind the front floor. I am in the front. It's tiny there so you can stand infront of the stage there just might be 100 or so people in the front floor. Nah sorry man i think it will be split in 2. Dont worry it's still a mad view from their coz it's so small

Might mention here that the Brisbane show has completely sold out. Also if you hop onto their myspace website you can pick the setlist - for Brisbane anyway, assuming there will be another link for the Sydney show.

Was shocked that Brisbane sold out so quickly seeing as its an 18+ event! The Tivoli doesnt hold too many though.

Lizilla
09-17-2009, 07:26 AM
Hey Cris,

Best you can do is rock up to the Tivoli a few hours before the gig is due to start and hope that someone is trying to get rid of tickets, that or start scouring RAVE and Time Off magazines "For Sale/Giveaway" section in the coming weeks :)

http://www.pickrset.com/bands/theoffspring/

Personally I am bummed that D.U.I isn't an option, but I think everyone should pick Mota because, you know, that's a pretty good song.

Edit: Current Sydney setlist from that site:

1 You're Gonna Go Far, Kid
(Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace)

2 Bad Habit
(Smash)

3 Self-Esteem
(Smash)

4 She's Got Issues
(Americana)

5 Me & My Old Lady
(Ixnay on the Hombre)

6 Kristy, Are You Doing Okay?
(Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace)

7 Mota
(Ixnay on the Hombre)

8 The Kids Aren't Alright
(Americana)

9 Americana
(Americana)

10 Lapd
(Ignition)

Lizilla
09-18-2009, 09:53 PM
I've voted for Mota and a few others for Sydney as well as Brisbane.

If anyone attending Brisbane can vote for I'll Be Waiting, Blackball, Mota, Nothing from something and Dirty Magic...that'd be seriously cool. Maybe they'll actually take heed of the list and play some old classics >.<

Does anyone here know where the good and bad seats are at the Enmore Theatre for their Sydney show? There are only reserved seats left and its in the 'dress circle', which looks like its right up the back.
Can anyone tell me what kind of view you get from up there?

There's no bad seats there. It's like a hall at an RSL or something you can see from anywhere

Considering Offspring dont seem to have had any advertising on this tour whatsoever, its pretty huge that they have sold out Brisbane and almost sold out Sydney imo.

I'm happy they arent playing larger venues as well. be so much more intimate at the Tiv.

Yeah it's good. It means just true fans will know about it. What does the Tiv hold? Enmore's 2200

Yeah it's good. It means just true fans will know about it. What does the Tiv hold? Enmore's 2200

Tivoli holds about 1500..so even though its not a small amount, its defs smaller than the Riverstage. They played last time, that holds about 9,000. I'm not entirely sure if that sold out, but it looked pretty packed when they played their last time.

1500 is a good sized gig still, to sell out so quickly with no promo - incredible.

Stevo
10-03-2009, 05:04 PM
Blew me away when I heard they were playing the Tivoli. Hopefully it doesn't get too crazy. I go to many shows at the Tivoli and it gets quite full on.

Really looking forward to it, haven't missed a Brisbane Offspring gig since 1996

Megarampage has been cancelled in Melbourne:

http://www.bombshellzine.com/newspage/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=4583

Apparantly though Wu-Tang and Offspring will be changing their venue to Festival Hall. So I'd presume those in Melbourne will still be able to use their ticket to that gig. I dont know capacity or anything down there though :S

Fingers crossed Offspring dont cancel all the aussie dates - surely they cant if the venues sold out in Brisbane and Sydney!

I hope offspring move to another venue and i can get tickets

I'm in Tassie and booked airfares, hotel and bought tickets for mate and myself, they are both my mate and my all time favorite band

Would suck to not be able to see them

Budzy
10-06-2009, 12:46 AM
lol I just made a thread about this.
Festival Hall? That may actually end up better, now I won't have to pay $160.

Budzy
10-06-2009, 01:02 AM
They are refunding tickets, so I doubt we will be able to use them for the Festival Hall show. Funny how I had to pay around $15 for postage and handling of the tickets, sure my $160 will get refunded, but the bastards took my $15.

Lizilla
10-06-2009, 07:46 AM
Yeah,

I feel so sorry for everyone who did pay for that purely to see one band :(

But Festy Halls a pretty tops venue as well! So all is not lost...as long as you can nab tickets quickly seeing as other bands are playing also.

Same in Sydney Enmore holds 2200. LAst time they played Horden which holds 5. They could of played Entertainment Centre 15000 and Acer 25000 and fill them aswell.

I will be able to touch them from the front row

Hi Lizilla i was wanting to take my digital to get some pics but not sure if i should as i would have to take a bag. You have been to the Tivoli and would you recommend just leaving the camera at home?

Does anyone else suggest leaving bag at home just need it for my smokes and camera really. Not really sure how full on it will be at the Tivoli?

Even though Offspring is still cancelled for future reference:

If you can wear something with pockets (like maybe camo pants? - JayJays do some cheap male Camo pants, just find the size that fits you) with lots of room thats more ideal than a bag.

Bags are totally allowed at the Tiv though but you will have to be subjected to a bag inspection :)

I've taken a bag in to gigs at Riverstage and Tiv before and just made sure I strapped it to the front of me. I looked like a bit of a plonker, but a few others followed suit because just means its less liable to have things stolen from it. Also gives you a bit more air room in the mosh ;) :)

It sucks more that there doesnt appear to be a reason for it so far.

"All tickets will be refunded via original ticketing outlets. Please call Ticketek on 132 849 for further information."

Lets just hope they arent playing the BDO seeing as its already sold out! Maybe they have decided to wait until later on in the year so they can get bigger venues and go through each state?

Was pretty gutted when I heard this (am a bit slow on news).

Went to the Ticketek outlet and didn't get a refund saying "Until further notice".

No idea if this means that the tickets may still be valid if the tour gets re-scheduled before the previous dates or if just means to go back the day after the scheduled show.

Was very unhappy, though.

I'm still very annoyed.

3rd time they've come and I haven't been able to see them.

2nd time was Soundwave, wasn't able to get a ticket.

But, yeah. Next time. :)

That's pretty awesome, although I'd still prefer The Tivoli.

More "personal" I suppose, plus there's no big ass hills.

Might just be me, and I know the Tivoli's expensive. But do you think $80 is a bit much?

Don't get my wrong, they are my favourite band, but still, $80 just seems a bit much.

so they book 1 show, in melbourne. they consequently decide they might as well do some more while they're out this way. me and six of my friends spend upward of $500 each to arrange flights to sydney to see our favourite band. the wu tang clan cancel, resulting in the cancellation of the festival in melbourne. the offspring, who were going to come for that sole show, subsequently cancel their whole tour, instead of simply changing the venue of the melbourne show. meanwhile the wu tang clan are now coming again and are doing a seperate show in melbourne, this whole situation blows!
