I have been listening to them for the past ten years, and when they came to Cape Town (South Africa) last year September, it was a fucking dream come true. They are really fucking awesome band live, and if you've been listening to them for as long as I have then you can imagine what it meant to me seeing them live. Came out of the mosh with fucked up bruises. It was the best day of my life.

mm. i wasnt greatly impressed. dexters voice sounds like hes been sucking helium and when the kids arent alright came on i only recognised it about a 1/3 of the way through, it was just noise. same with alot of the other songs.

Yeah, I've been listening to them for years and whenever they played in London, they sell out really quickly. Last year, I finally got tickets and it was amazing. We were up high in the venue and so we were watching the moshing form above! Great stuff...

Saw them at Reading this year and OH MY GOD Fucking amazing. They had to be the most energetic band there and they didnt fuck around they just rolleed of song after song probally around 20 in about 1 hour 20 mins think it was the most from any band and they werent even headlining (they should have been tho) and all the singles/GH kindda stuff.

right before they went off to europe to tour with splinter, they stopped by philly to do a festival for a local radio radio station. it was one of the best shows i've ever been to. i saw them when they came back from europe to do the north american tour and i noticed how much their energy had greatly decreased. amazing really...

They do quite well live. Every now and then, though, they may not put on a good show. When I saw them in 2000 they were a little sloppy (not too much!) and in 1999 the power went out near the end of their set (not part of the show). Other than those moments, they were awesome!

Well their live performance has gotten a little worse over the years. If listen to them now dexter sounds like hes singing through his nose almost, he just doesnt have the same edge anymore, the instrumental part has only gotten better though.

id say offspring are one of the better live bands that play the songs as they were recorded, unlike blink 182!

I've only heard Long way Home live and that was on a single. Long Way Home live is nowhere near as good as the album version, I don't know about their other songs live though.

what morocha dew says is true. i saw them last year too, when they came to colombia. they sound exactly like the cd. dexter's voice is perfect, and they are never out of key. it's awsome to see how noodles fools around with his guitar... in pretty fly he played with his guitar on the back of his head, i don't know how he can do that. and the new guy, atom, is full of energy, he's amazing. the only thing i did't like so much is that the show is too short (1 hour and 15 minutes). but it's lovely to see them try to speak spanish....

so you're trying to say that they fake it?
if they do, i really don't care. i'm just glad to say i had a great time. and that it was once in a lifetime chance

they are actually considered one of the best live bands around...i remember reading the new york post after they did the concert here on june 11th commenting about the show and how it sold out just on their reputation of putting on an awesome show...and then the guy said they kicked ass...and they did...amazing they were.

Of course it's not true! The guy that said that shit probably was stoned during the concert... or at the time he posted that... or maybe both... that's ridiculous...

I'm really confused... my sister has heard some of the live performances I've downloaded and some of the live performances on the complete music video collection and she says it sounds bad. There are some poeple who are telling they suck live and some people who are telling me they rock. :confused:

They are very awesome live. The show at itself isn't really that special, it's just all about the music. And the amount of energy is huge, they totally blow you away, in a good way.

By the way, I am thinking about going for the mini-skirt/small purse combo. I'll think about the flower flip-flops, but I don't want the mob to step on my pedicured feet. That was an excellent idea.

If you don't want to wear the flip-flops, you could that kind of boots, but in pink instead?

Dexter live kicks major ass :cool:

I've seen them 3 times: 1 in the CO1 tour and 2 in the Splinter tour. I reckon that his voice was better in the splinter tour. I don't know what the hell happened to him during the co1 tour but he looked like sick, his voice was strange, maybe he caught a cold or something lol (after all, the tour was during the winter:D)! But both concerts I've been in the splinter tour were better. They kicked ass, we fans should be proud of them, because they're really good :cool:

Many of their performances on 2004 sounds odd...all of them that i've hear are bad quality but still.
But isn't the performance on cvc dvd from 2004, the last one? If it is, then it isn't Dexters voice that's weird, it's just cause of the bad quality or the sound reproduction.

Dudes, just listen to me: go see an Offspring concert and don't think about those problems anymore!!!!!! Before I went to my first, I had the same fears, 'cause I listened to a few live performances downloaded from the old Napster and his voice sounded very different from the albums, and I have to confess that I didn't like a few performances, honestly.

But when I went over there, shit, it's just so fucking incredible being in the middle of all those people, the crowd growing wild, the sound getting louder and louder... I loved it, it's an awesome experience!!!!!

Offspring is so amazing live. I've seen lots of great bands live: The Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Billy Idol, Social Distortion, Velvet Revolver... But Offspring is the best band I've ever seen live. I saw them at HFStival, not even an Offspring Concert, a whole festival of bands, and they were by far the best band there. They only had about 50 minutes to play because The Cure were right after them, and they managed to play all their great songs. Hoe many other big bands manage to do that?

I just want to mention that this year's Warped Tour was my 6th time seeing them live and I have never experienced anything as insane as that pit! Normally I can handle it but near the end I realized I was going to overheat if I didn't get out of there. Of course, after I'm out, Dexter gets out the fire hose.
