Hey guys, I was just thinking the other day - since the Offspring finally started their European leg of this year tour, and I finally am going to make my dream come true(see offspring live), I just thought to myself - why wouldn't I make my other dream come true and that is - MEET THE BAND! Or just take a picture with them as a lovely memory. So since a lot of you guys actually met them at concerts, I just wanted to ask you all - how did you managed to do that?
I remember a fellow fan here told me that he and other bbs offspring fans asked them and met them in Berlin back in 2008. So I'm going to Wiesen(Two Days a Week) all by myself, and It would be really cool If I'd met them.
What I have to do? Can I ask someone here from boards? Can you guys give me any tip or tell me your experience in meeting the Offspring?
thanks ;)

Throw a pair of your knickers onto the stage with a cellular phone number on which they can reach you.

and make sure at least one of those sneakers hit Dexter in the face. He really loves that! He will give you one backstage ticket ASAP!

I knew that usual thread with clearly asked question like this one would not work.:) ps. Does someone, almost 'institution', like Oxygene exist for the U.S?

ps. Go to Prague media thread.

I'd have to look it up, but if I remember well, you've been even mentioned in one of Noodles' tour journals. + have attended some great number of shows and meet'n'greets I guess, + are quite familiar to band, from what I've heard.
I was wondering if there's someone like you* in States, in South America.
*Who's going on almost every show, who Offspring look for in the crowd, sth like that. And who have those meetings sussed out, just via simple practice makes perfect. Ok, who's living backstage pass. I don't know, maybe someone fits those criteria better, I just have no idea who's as active in touring on other continents.
I'm just curious.

How many shows have you seen, btw, remember that?

I'm so happy I've finally checked those links, otherwise I'd think that knickers are some kind of shoes for the rest of my life, uff.
