My trip to Bristow was supposed to take at last 1:30. However, it took me almost 3:30 hour to get there because the AC in my car decided to stop working; therefore, the heat made me stop several times to get out of the car before I passed out. I really thought I would not be ale to make it because I wasn't feeling well and I was scared I could get into a car crash or something. The traffic jam wasn't helping either... Guess this blood pressure thing comes with old age hahaha...

Anyways, when I got to the pit I saw that all the trouble was worth it. There weren't seats, it was standing area and that made me very happy. There were more people this time even to watch Pepper. When The Offspring got into the stage, the crowd was bigger and much better than the one in NJ. Plus, there were many more Offspring fans. I was having a blast because it reminded me of the shows in 97 and 99.

They did not play KHWHD as I gently asked in sign I had with me, but Genocide was great. The crowd going insane during this song and Gotta get away made my day. I missed that a lot.

I thought things could not get any better than that. But before playing the new song Noodles said:

"We're going to play a new song, and this one goes to the chick from Brazil."

He looked at my direction and everyone standing around me looked at me with a blank expression while I was jumping up and down as if I'd just won the lottery.

I still can't believe it. Guess I got more than I can actually handle; meeting them in person is no longer necessary in my life. That was good enough for this brazilian fan.

Set list (Never remember the order of course)

Bad Habbit
Gotta get away
COAP
Self Esteem
Genocide
All I Want
Gone Away
Pretty Fly
TKAA
Staring at the sun
WDYGAJ
YGGF,K
Hammerhead
Kristy
CGMHAY
Guns of Brixton
New song

Awesome pics. Camila! You're a very lucky girl indeed!! I love the "The Offspring" shirt written downwards. That's pretty fucking sweet. :D I really wish they were playing here again this summer. :(

WOW! That white t-shirt with the Rise and Fall heart looks FUCKING AMAZING. That wasn't there when I went, otherwise I would've picked that shirt up in a heart beat! I do however, have every other t-shirt there. Saved up a ton of cash for the merch lol! Thank you for the pictures and I'm glad you had a wicked time!

The shirts were all $30-35 at Summerfest. Does anyone know why they were only $25 in VA?

I don't know specifics for the band's merch prices, but I know generally bigger venues or festivals take a cut of a band's merch sales, and prices can go up or down on a tour depending on how big of a cut is being taken out.

I am going to freak the fuck out... this is amazing. Out of all the shit I've been through with these guys I think this is the most awesome thing ever.

This is such a huge deal for me.. sheesh.. oh man.

It's totally fucking twisted. This past week, Noodles wore my bands shirt more then the other way around. In fact I can't wear any of my Offspring shirts anymore since like November. I need some new shit.. I'm gonna get some, and probably have one of those Hungarian logo ones made as well.

I love that first shirt, it's amazing. Though the "Unity Tour" makes me not want to buy it since I wasn't there, and I'm generally not a big fan of tour shirts. But I just love that eagle.

Did Noodles remember you from a previous meeting then? That's quite cool he picked you out of the crowd like that!

I bought 2 shirts. The Bad Habbit one and the RFRG one because it only says Offspring tour. I loved the eagle one, but decided not to get it.


wow i hope i can buy that shirt when they play in irvine

Save up a lot of money, because you might end up wanting them all. If only I had saved more money hahaha...


Awesome pics. Camila! You're a very lucky girl indeed!! I love the "The Offspring" shirt written downwards. That's pretty fucking sweet. :D I really wish they were playing here again this summer. :(

Thanks, Shank. I liked that shirt too. But when it comes to girls' shirt, the sizes are not very friendly. They were way too small for me. :rolleyes:

Thank you, and yeah.. save up!


Camila, that's amazing!!! You must have been so excited!

I was. The best show I've seen in the US so far. The crowd was just amazing. Everybody singing along and having fun. Plus, the thing I would never ever thought it would happen.


And congrats! Noodles is kickin ass lately. How did he know you were from Brazil?

Not at all. I've never met him before. It's just that every concert I've been to in the US, I took this shirt with me that has the Brazilian flag with the skull, and I was always in the front row, between him and Dexter. They would always look at the shirt, point and smile. This time I took a sign saying that "Camilamazed" wanted to listen to Kick him when he's down, so I'm guessing he remembered me from the boards.

And I love the t-shirts. Especially the white one with red letters, in the top of right corner :)

I forgot to mention that in NJ they had a black hood with the Flamming skull ($60) and a long sleeve Smash t-shirt ($45).

Should've gotten this one online.
