EDIT - FUCK! It seems that Them Crooked Vultures (OMG) are strongly rumoured to be the surprise act at PP on Thursday night. And that timeslot clashes with the Offspring. Shit, I hope it turns out to be someone else because I bought my ticket because of the Offspring and I wanna get down the front :(

Yeah I also think it's going to be TCV. There's also a rumour that it's going to be Pearl Jam but I don't expect them to play in the Marquee. Too bad if it's TCV i'm going to The Offspring anyway.

The surprise acted was priced 50.000$ so I expect TCV to be on the podium.

Depending if The Offspring agree with the rights*, the concert is (video)streamed live here:
http://summerfestivals.skynet.be/blank.html?l1=entertainment&l2=musicclub&l3=festivals&l4=live&a=live&fyid=24

21.35-22.35 CET Main stage stream (don't know if they block certain countries based on their IP address), if you want to know what time that is where you are, just type in: current time belgium into Google and work out the maths =p.

Might be a little bit crowded on the site though if they get the rights to broadcast one of the first concerts of Them Crooked Vultures (should be the surprise act) which consist of Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) and John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) since they are playing in the Marquee between 20.55-21.55 CET, so there is a bit of overlap.

the offspring concert was broadcasted??

Ansem
08-21-2009, 09:16 AM
Nope, wasn't broadcasted.
I was on front row with cam but battery didn't work because of rain during Deftones. :p So couldn't film, too bad.
Was a good performance though, but bass was too loud.

IdleOffspring
08-21-2009, 10:08 AM
I was there. Stood in the front row from 14.00 till the offspring came on 21.30hour. I only came for them.

I have some movies, gone away with piano full and lots of half songs. I will post them soon.

I loved them, but I am a crazy offspring fan who loves eveything.

They where great. Yeah the setlist was only hits, but intermission was back, and gone away on piano was cool. I understand the setlist, around me nobody knew them really, yes only the hits.

I want a concert with only offspringfans, o well, it was good and see them next week again.

what was the setlist ?

ThunderPX
08-23-2009, 04:12 AM
I just got back, fucking awesome. Setlist was something like:
YGGFK, Bad Habit, Come Out and Play, Staring at the Sun, Americana, Hit That, Gone Away (piano), Hammerhead, Intermission, Kristy, All I Want, Pretty Fly, Get a Job, Head Around You, Kids Aren't Alright, Want You Bad, Self Esteem.

The order is probably off though, I'm only sure about the first three and last two.

GunForHire
08-23-2009, 05:31 AM
Also just back - fucking AWESOME show. First time I'd managed to see the band in over 5 years and it was incredible. I ended up right down the front, even got in a bit of moshing (and wrecked my knee in the process :)).

My only complaint is that the Offspring should've been headlining - they pulled one of the biggest crowds of the weekend and totally upstaged Faith No More (much to the annoyance of Mike Patton I'll add). Guess Dex was right when he said "I think we're stealing the show!". Would love to have had a longer set, but what can you do? Oh and there was pretty much no crowd interaction which I thought was a little strange too, usually the guys have a good laugh on stage.

Oh yea, this was the first time I'd seen Dex play Gone Away entirely on piano without the band kicking in about halfway through like they have in all the other live videos I've seen. Thought that was kinda odd, but it was still cool. And yes, I was one of the many people with my lighter out :D

Yeah it was really awesome! And like you said, it was pretty strange they didn't interact with the crowd... If they did, it would be even better. That's the only thing I can complain about (and ofcourse I wanted to see them play longer) Crowd was awesome. I liked it when everybody was going along with intermission. I could see it on the screens. Now I hope I don't have to wait 5 more years to see them again :)

Okay, some days after the show at last I have time, I have internet so I'm able to tell you my story. I think this was the best night of my life. It will be so hard to write everything what happened to me. I canít believe it. At the 20th me and my brother went to Brusseles. My brotherís friend was there and my bro left at he's place to have a party with him. I travelled to Kiewit to see the show. When I arrived I called Oxy to have a meet, just to see some familiar face. I was waiting for him next to the main stage about an hour and I couldnít belive it when he appeared and gave me a backstage ticket. He had this one to give it to heís co-worker but he didnít come. I was the happiest all over the world. It was just some hours before the show. We went backstage and there I had the most fantastic hours of my life. There were a lot of band members, I met Josh Homme, I took a photo with Dave Grohl, had a speech with Noodles, he said he saw me in Budapest at the first row. I was very happy because he recognized me. I saw Dexter, Pete and Greg too and met all the Offspring crew members. There was a girl with her husband from Los Angeles who won the contest of Kroq. They won backstage tickets. They and Oxy were allow to see the Offspring from the stage. And it was the next surprise, the crew members let me too to see the show from the stage!!!! I just canít represent that feeling. It was fantastic. To see the crowd and the Offspring from there. It was the best show of my life. I took some pictures during the show. After it we were before the Offspring dressing room and talked a lot with a lot people. I had a speech with two members of the Deftones and drank a lot with the Offspring crew members. They showed me the tour bus on the inside and the dressing room too. Iíll never forget these fantastic hours. The band left the place soon after the show, but I talked a little to Dexter and Noodles, took a pic with Todd and Noodles gave me a big hug. After that I was there till 3 am with the crew members, the contest winners and with Oxy and had a party with them. Just canít belive that this happened to me!!!! After all of the parties I went back to the trainstation, catched a train and had a travel back to Brusseles to my brother. Next day came home by bus. And since that time Iím just speechless and nobody happier than me. Very very very big thanks to Oxygene who let me do on this! You Are the best guy!!!! I have some pics of the night. Here they are.


You got to meet The Offspring AND Dave Grohl? Holy crap, I'm insanely jealous.
