Hello... I'm in a hotel right now, some time after the show logged in from my mobile phone. I've been in Europe now for a week and got to see shows, this one was fucking awesome, I gave everything out of myself. They played Million Miles Away by the way... and Half-Truism. Great show.

HAHA I was talking with Noodles at Highfield about the whole texting and playing a rare song a night thing and we kinda discussed how it would be impossible to do that texting shit with all the different operators and what have you in different countries.. I asked him if they knew how to play lightning rod for real, he said they sound checked it for the tour.. and that they might sound check it for London. We were talking about these songs he calls "deep cuts" and I told him they should play something preferably Lightning Rod in London and Zagreb....

and now MMA. It is so awesome that the band listens to feedback to some extent... I wonder if it'll come through in Zagreb :)

So this was a big fuck you to all those whiney bitches.. rock on! =)

HAHA I was talking with Noodles at Highfield about the whole texting and playing a rare song a night thing and we kinda discussed how it would be impossible to do that texting shit with all the different operators and what have you in different countries..
Not completely impossible, since the EU put a maximum on the price of cross border EU calls and text messages (13 eurocent for an sms). Heck it's even cheaper for me to send an sms to another EU country than it is to send one in my own country (so I sometimes just switch to a foreign operator, since I live at the border, to fake that I'm abroad).

haha I wonder if they still know how to play the blurb, that would give a nice WTF moment at a concert and most people would think they are starting Change the world.

Ok here I am, I'll tell you my fantastic experience.
I woke up at 6:00 am, drove for 2 hours to the airport and then flew to london. Once there I got at the academy at 12:30. There I met some good guys (Hi chris if you read this!) and waited all day in the back of the academy. There I talked with some members of the crew, they told me that there was a meet&greet somewhere, it surely was from some radio stations :mad: One of them is italian like me so we got on well immediately, in the end I got 4 guitar picks. One because I told them that the police was giving them a fine for their bus in a no parking zone eheh (pics later). We didn't chatch Noodles and Greg for the blink of an eye, they arrived in a silver car jumped down while we were in another door near that. Then we stayied there and waited for Dexter, but he only arrived 10 minutes before the show. So I met Lord_Gabo and Kylae (mispelled?) and her boyfriend, we had a beer and enjoyed the opening bands. Me, Gabo and another friend went ahead in the first rows and show proudly the flag of our Island which I threw to Noodles at the beginning of SIMU with the cd of my band in it, but I don't think he took it. The show was fucking energic! they really enjoyed the show and playing, Dexter was laughing a lot and it was funny when Noodles and the other guitarsit (lack of memory) maked fun of Greg doing his dance, and obviously he didn't noticed that! Million miles away was a surprise and a really good one. Dexter sang all the songs prefectly, just fucked up the second verse of mma but as he said it was a long time they hadn't played it.
The sound was excellent, Pete was HUGE! after the show we got back again, Dexter appeared for one second but didn't say nothing, then the bus took Pete, Noodles and Greg. I was the only one who noticed Pete jumping on and I called him "hey Pete" but he didn't stop and while he was stepping up i told him "nice drumming tonight" " and he looked at me and said thanks :D then Greg came with a glass on his hand, i think it was wine, I said Hi Greg but he goy straight up on the bus (for real I was a bit confused because they were all there and didn't really know what to say to stop them), then Noodles arrived, and I called him too and he said "sorry sorry" but I told him that I just wanted to give him the flag of my country and he thanked me and took it, I am really happy for this. And in conclusion someone from the crew gave me a bottle of Gring Bandito, the funny thing is that they weren't selling it and even run out of it for themselves, so when another crew guy saw it, asked me how did I get it, that they ran out of it and they were all like gringobanditoholic now. He even asked me to sell it ahaahuahuah. Unfortunately I couldn't keep it for long because the bottle is 150cc and you can only take bottles of 100 on the plane, so I just tasted it with my last hamburger, and then they threw it in the dump :mad:
Oh Dexter fucked us all, from what I undestood in the end he got away from the main door because nobody was there, and we were in the back...:D
What a fucking day guys!!

He probably flew with ryanair or another low cost carrier without check-in luggage. And didn't have enough money for the insane surcharges they tend to have if you show up with luggage all of a sudden.

Or he forgot.

Then we stayied there and waited for Dexter, but he only arrived 10 minutes before the show.

[...] and it was funny when Noodles and the other guitarsit (lack of memory) maked fun of Greg doing his dance, and obviously he didn't noticed that!



He arrived 10mins before?? So if I'd hung on like 15 more minutes I would have seen him too :-/ argh. (I'm kate - the girl with red hair and a green check shirt by the way)
Though i guess that means the people for the official meet & greet didn't get to meet him either, makes me feel a bit better lol.

Ooh I didn't see Noodles make fun of Greg, what did they do??

Glad you got some Gringo Bandito in the end ;)


I got near the front too, so I have a few photos and 3 videos, but none of the videos are very long because I was scared of dropping my camera - like i got the best bit of Bad Habit but had to put my camera away as soon as everyone shouted "MOTHERFUCKER!" in case i got pushed over haha.

It was one of the best gigs I've ever been to, wish I was seeing them in Manchester tonight!

I asked him if they knew how to play lightning rod for real, he said they sound checked it for the tour.. and that they might sound check it for London. We were talking about these songs he calls "deep cuts" and I told him they should play something preferably Lightning Rod in London and Zagreb....


And it'd be pretty awesome, too, if they played Lightning Rod.

As a part-time taper, I am almost certain that I saw someone with a recording rig in Brixton on Tuesday night. Almost positive. Either that or an elaborate pair of earplugs on wires - But I am sure he was taping it.


Please Please If you are out there - share it please.

I have 5 full songs, SIFU, Bad Habit, Million Miles Away, Gone Away piano and Americana. Then I have Kristy on 2 parts because had to change memory cards in the middle of it. Rest is only parts of songs. I'm uploading these I just mentioned on megaupload. They're just uploading but it will take some time. I'll post a link when they're all there.

did anyone actually manage to meet or chat with the band after the london show?! i gave up waiting after a while but was wondering what time they did come out if anyone knew.

i wasnt quite sure what the third guitarist was for, they normally just use someone now and again on certain songs but he performed the whole show with them. the show was good but i think they were better on the other ocassions ive seen them. it didnt help that the drums were so faint as well!

Both gigs were AMAZING! Plus... I GOT DEXTERS PIC AT THE LONDON GIG! Ill post some pictures later when I upload them to the PC.

Anyway review...

Arrived at the London gig just in time to see Broadway calls who I think were mediokre in a gig of this size. They looked a little out of place. A few good songs nevertheless, a deserved warm up act. Secondly, Rival Schools. I wasnt really a fan of thier music but they seemed to get the crowd warmed up nicely. Anyone else think the guitarist (the big guy) looked like big al from Toy Story?

Then after a seemlessly endless wait, The Offspring were on stage. As soon as the starting drumbeat from SIMU began we were in business. The crown were wild and the band even wilder as they played through thier hits. A few hidden gems were thrown in too, MMA and Americana kept the playlist fresh with Gone Away (piano) suprisingly getting the crowd going. All in all a FANTASTIC night. I came away sweating like a bitch and limping but oh so worth it. I was also suprised at how easy it was to get to the front.

The next day was the Manchester gig and affter arriving when the doors opening I worked my way to about the third row. This venue was much smaller, about half the size in total and Broadway Calls seemed to relish in this. They were awesome, much better than the London gig and it prompted me to check them out some more. Rival Schools were about the same as the London gig, didn't really get me going but a lot of other people really enjoyed them. Again The Offspring took to the stage and the room went NUTS! The same setlist was played exactly and although some variety would have been nice I would be lying if I said I was dissappointed. The show was great again and just like the London gig I was sweaty as anything.

All in all a bloody good experience. I was a little gutted that they wernt selling Gringo Bandito at the gig but oh well, you can't ask for everything.

Pictures to follow in the next day or so.

Did anyone notice some guy throwing a shoe on the stage just when they were ending up a song and their back in front of the audience? Then they just yelled "we fucking love you". That was weird. I looked at the tour section and there someone from "near London" has done the dame thing previously, hmm.

All I Want sounds so fucking tight, especially Dexter's vocals. That definitely got the crowd most going.
