Hey Offspring Fans,
The band will perform a special show on May 3 at Alex's Bar in Long Beach, CA (www.alexsbar.com). The bar holds just a couple hundred rowdy folks like yourself and for this special occasion The Offspring will perform their Ignition album in its entirety along with new and classic songs. It's the 20th anniversary of Ignition, the band's first release on Epitaph Records. We're hoping this show does better than Ignition's initial record release party in Fullerton in 1992 - that only drew 25 diehard fans.

So how do you get tickets?
On Wednesday, April 25 at 10:00 AM Pacific the entry form on this link will become active: www.offspring.com/alexsbartickets
The entry form will enable you to enter a lottery for the opportunity to purchase tickets to the show. It will be open until 10:00 AM on Thursday, April 26. On that date randomly selected entrants will be notified of their opportunity to purchase two (2) tickets during a limited time window, only sold in pairs. If any tickets remain after that window, another group of randomly selected entrants will be notified of the opportunity to purchase tickets and so on until the ticket allocation is exhausted.

IMPORTANT: THIS IS A WILL CALL ONLY 21+ SHOW. BOTH THE TICKET BUYER AND THEIR GUEST MUST SHOW VALID GOVERNMENT ISSUED PHOTO ID AND BE 21 YEARS OLD OR OLDER TO ENTER THE VENUE. NO EXCEPTIONS. NO TRANSFERS, EXCHANGES OR REFUNDS WILL BE PERMITTED. NO RE-ENTRY. TICKETS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR.

Good luck and see you at the show!

PS - This show is just a part of many Offspring happenings this year. A new single "Days Go By" premieres this Friday, April 27. A new album of the same name will be released this Summer. And the band will be on tour throughout the year. Stay connected with Offspring.com and www.facebook.com/offspring for the latest updates.

I think this is amazing by the band, and I really envy the lucky hundreds who get to go. It's really no surprise that this happens back on Long Beach where the band comes from, and I don't expect the band to do the same thing in Europe, but I really wish for them to do it. If I had the money, I would go all the long way to Long Beach to experience this. This record, that they will be playing in its entirety, is one of the best records I have ever heard, much better than the rest of Offspring's discography. It's really cool by the band to do this.

Ok perfect! We'll let each other know if we get picked. If we both do, then maybe two other members here might be interested in going, and so on. If old fans can't see a show that was meant for them.. then shit is fucked up :P

I have been excited for this since I got the email, I really really hope I win the lottery. I am from Long Beach, born and raised, and have already made plans to come back home from college that day (I'm not too far away anyway). Plus, if I'm going to this I might as well stay in Long Beach for the Weenie Roast they are performing at a couple days later.

I'm so glad I'm 21 now, if this happened last year I would have been extremely upset haha.

Here's to hoping we all get that lucky winner email...

I'm at cal state long beach right now and I told somebody about this show on accident. I'm trying to keep it a secret but it's hard when it's like the only thing on your mind.

I lucked out though, this guy told me how he went to the same school as noodles' daughter and went to some birthday party where noodles was there, so he tried to get his autograph but noodles wouldn't let him. So he hates offspring now for that and doesn't care about this show haha. I'll be quiet the rest of the day around here :P

I suspect this is why they require the zip code on the entry form, they may filter out to only local people since that is who it was sent to. Or they will cross reference the email sign-ups with those on the mailing list. Just because the word spread doesn't mean they haven't put measures in place, I'm sure they fully expected this to happen.

What I said also might not be the case, maybe all sign-ups and zip codes will be kept in the running.

That would be awesome, but I'm not sure how they could have policed that since they don't have a "fan club" per se. Maybe this is something they can consider in the future.


I suspect this is why they require the zip code on the entry form, they may filter out to only local people since that is who it was sent to. Or they will cross reference the email sign-ups with those on the mailing list. Just because the word spread doesn't mean they haven't put measures in place, I'm sure they fully expected this to happen.

What I said also might not be the case, maybe all sign-ups and zip codes will be kept in the running.

My experience with the band is that they are extremely thoughtful dudes, and few if any details are overlooked...I'd be willing to bet there's a method to all this madness. :)


it's pretty fucked up how people that are not on the mailing list can sign up

Well, yes and no - I mean, if I were the band, I'd want to make sure that bar is packed full of the fans who have supported them the most over the years, and a lot of those people are regular posters here on the forum. I'm sure they expected the lottery link to get out, but that's also why they only emailed it to people on the mailing list. I'm not sure there's a way to prevent anyone from using the link if they're not on the mailing list. I think they're making the best of it and trying to be as fair as possible. They're going to break more than a few hearts here, which is why I'm trying to help manage expectations. I was super pissed off when I got the email because this is the one weekend I'm out of town, so I can only imagine how people are going to feel if and when they don't get picked in the lottery. But I think that's ultimately a more fair way to do it than first-come first-served.

When they first announced that they would be doing some "small club shows" to play Ignition in its entirety I figured it may just be a few dates in California so I told my buddy who lives in LA that as long as I could secure the funds and he could secure tix that I'd fly out (being that like many of you Ignition is my favorite album). Unfortunately they announced this a week prior to the show making it impossible for me to get the funds or the time off.

So hopefully they schedule some more "all-Ignition" shows down the road and preferably closer to home. Congrats to all those that get to go.

that was what Pete was talking about, old school punk songs rehearsals. Defenitely we need a dvd with this show and any other ignition celebration show or at least a live streaming for all the die hard fans. European Ignition show(s) could be a dream for me. I thing they should have done it with the s/t 20 years.

ps: Is it time for a fanclub again (like ixnay days) or offspring web nation again?what about a new threat to ask about it officially?

2) I wish someone will be recording the Long Beach show! It would be very interessing to see it into an official DVD! A Piece Of Memorabillia!

3) Don't we deserve it for a fanclub again? I think, it could be a good question to Dexter ;)

Yes, unfortunately they let us know only by mail so if it happens in other nations I won't be able to know, if not by a leak as it's happened here, but I hope people will keep it for themselves a bit ( I know, it's against me too). At the same time I hope that the band will email all the european fans knowing that some of us are ready to jump on a plane\bus\car to see a show like that!

You, Sir, are a meanie. =p

You know what saddens me? The fact that a lot of people who will win the lottery will probably drag a friend who is mostly likely not into the band. I have talked to a lot of people in concerts that were there just to keep company for a friend. That's just annoying.

An epic celebration like this one should be only for fans. Alanis Morissette does things like that. A channel in Brazil invited her to be in a soap opera, later they wanted to have a show only for people form the channel. She said no, she would only play if there were fans in the audience. The channel than contacted fan clubs and gave out tickets. That was pretty awesome.

Dexter_italy
04-26-2012, 09:34 AM
Unfortunately the Offspring hasn't got a fan club. But they have emails of bbs members, I'm positive they'll keep an eye on it. As for the 2 tickets I'd rather bring someone I find at the entrance of the show then bringing a friend who doesn't care. I wouldn't give a chance to someone who doesn't deserve it.

I have mixed emotions about this, on one hand Im sad as If I wanted to cry or just die. because its my favorite Offspring album . it is perfect.

I wish so bad I could go. But on the other hand Im happy for this since Ignition deserves this kind of celebration.

Im sorry I can get is to see this, but hope they will start playing some songs off this album , besides Dirty Magic that they've remade and will relase in the new album

They should of sent all of us on the mailinglist a special code or something to put us above all the other people who don't even know offspring's early material.

I mean, it's kind of cool if a lot of people unfamiliar with Ignition go to the show because they would get hooked onto those old songs too. But if I were in the band, I definitely would prefer to play a show for the real fans.

Oh well, I guess we'll see soon who gets in!

agreed. ultimately you can only do so much in this age of information

edit: too much of a hassle to generate unique code for each person on list

Manic subsidal
04-26-2012, 11:05 AM
No, you could definitely make this type of thing fair. I mean, even with the e-mails we have on the mailinglist, that could of been our "code". When the lottery is done, they can just search for which e-mails match the mailinglist, send them all a confirmation code, etc.

I wonder how long the limited time window thing will last. I'd like to spend a couple hours today without internet on me so I can go to a farmers market. I swear, when I get back it's going to be like "congrats, you have the opportunity to purchase tickets... oh wait, too late!"

Thing is, there are only a 4 people here, which means it's only 8 tickets, considering that the tickets are sold in pairs. And getting 8 more people in wouldn't kill anyone, for sure. And they sure as hell deserve these tickets more than a lot of people who will actually make it to the show.

I don't fault you guys for trying, but this is by far the biggest show that Alex's Bar has ever put on. Green Day played there once, but it was as Foxboro Hot Tubs. I know that when I worked at a venue in NYC, whenever we had a crazy huge band in our tiny tiny venue, the fire marshall would magically show up for a surprise inspection. Each person over capacity was a significant fine. Not saying the band shouldn't find a way to get their biggest fans into the show, but I am saying that in the event they can't, it's not the band's fault. There's a finite amount of space, and the state of California is broke so I'm sure they wouldn't mind fining the shit out of Alex's Bar. And that would suck.

Well, there's that, too. To be honest, I hadn't quite thought about that yet. But what if they haven't selected everyone yet and the band decides to say "Hey, hold on, hold 8 tickets for us". So, it's good to try!

I'm sure there could be a way to figure something out. Maybe craft a piece of software that doesn't allow you to tab out or anything. I know it would be difficult, but I think it's worth it. Most of the people on these boards are the fans that really deserve to go to these shows and are missing out. Maybe the guys could somehow do something where they only give people who are active members of the board access to a pre-sale or something like that.

Sarah, you think that anybody could be at this concert no matter if super fan or just somebody who likes a song or two? I mean, if the band wanted something like that they might as well just play on festivals. A small club, an old CD, don't you think it would be much more of an intimate experience if only die hard fans were allowed? Imagine if all the kids that go just go for the sake of it, then they play songs and the audience is like "what the heck?"

Oh yeah, the pop quiz idea is kind of lame because information can be retrieved anywhere. Now, about the lottery, I think a lot of people would enter for a chance to win. If a person gets a pair of tickets, she can sell the second if the ticket has no name. I don't know, I just hope real fans get the chance to see this.

Good call on sending the link to the management!

You're right. BBS is not the only place, but it's where the majority is and we know who we could take with us. I mean, if I won I would definitely give the ticket to a fan.

yep. In all likelihood the password is already used too, especially since the names are attached and I feel like most people figured this out since it was written multiple times.



*siiiiggghhh* yes. Can only do so much in this day and age I guess.

Like everyone has said no matter what you come up with people will find a way around it. That they tried to do it this way is at least some sort of acknowledgement.

Once the code is entered, I believe the name is attached to the order. you had to sign up for an account and fill out your billing and "ship to" info. I don't think it matters what name was used on the entry form.

well then fair enough. that guy is a douche but at least he maybe isn't Screwing people.

There was same sort of a concect like this in my country in 2005 where you couldn't buy tickets anywhere. 700 tickets were available for their club gig.

There was a good thing how they decided part who will get in. You had to write an essay "why you should see The Offspring?". That said, my essay was maybe 1,000 pages long. Of course, I got the ticket.

But if one's truely truely truely diehard hardcore fan, he/she will find to get in anyway. :D

Yup... it sure takes a lot of time. I'm pretty sure they didn't even read mine to the half. But that show was sponsored by a beer company, so it was them who had to read them. At least from what I know all the most devoted got the tickets by that way.

It was super fun to write it. :D I also included the most monsterious Offspring collection picture into it and claimed it to be mine (I had to play safe!) because they allowed to put one picture in there too. I didn't finish it on one day, or even one week maybe... I put all my effort into it, because there was no way I would've missed it. :) It was worth it. I have the whole writing saved, but too shame it's in Finnish. It's fun to read. I just continued, continued and continued.

This is what might be the best thing concerning these news. Can there be a more awesome thing that hearing all songs from Ignition live plus maybe some new never heard songs?? The people who are lucky to go might be the luckiest fans in the world, I hope you guys enjoy it! :) And I really hope there will be recordings, that would be beyond awesome.

Since he's not selling access to the sale like the other guy, I'm not sure this is against the rules but I'll ask.

I guess, but in this case, the guy wanted Noodles to be his idea of Noodles and not a dude hanging out with his daughter. No one in a band should have to be someone's monkey, to dance for them on their command. I went to Coachella and saw some asshole make Ian MacKaye take his shitty band's shitty CD while Ian was holding his son, trying to watch a band play. Some people have no shame, and that's a shitty way to be.

Obviously you didn't make it for bad. And probably it would have came out eventually. But even more obviously it's unfair pulling angst against the band for not winning the lottery or having made that lottery.

Sometimes I buy tickets to shows, and sometimes I won't need them, and sometimes I sell them, sometimes I give them away for free... I don't see anything wrong with either.
This guy seems to be starting the bid for $.01.. he's selling one ticket and they were sold in pairs, so obviously he is actually going to be using the other one.. I am not sure what the right thing for him to do would be. If I went to the show I would've entered the lottery and if I had won I would have an extra ticket. Should you just not use that then.. or what's the alternative?

Entering to win a password and selling it is fucked up, for sure... but entering a contest and "having to buy" a pair of tickets and selling off the second one, unless it's against the bands wishes, I don't see that as the devils work really...

I am not sure what the right thing is.. waste a space at a show like that? that can't be it... can it?

Hi guys, I used to post here years and years ago before they re did the board... I still check it from time to time but I hadn't re registered so I never posted. Anyway, I have a post up on Craigslist looking for a ticket, the guy who is selling on eBay responded to me and then said actually he was going to list the ticket (my posting offers $150) so clearly he's looking to make lot of money from it. Major bummer... Especially because there have been many a time where I have extra tickets and have always sold them for face value or given them away to big fans.

Other than this I just want to say hi and that I hope some more of us are able to track down some tickets even though the odds seem so slim...

Its pretty obvious this is a small show and Offspring specifically wanted it to be small on purpose. They know they can sell out venues as large as Verizon Wireless in Irvine.

The people on here complaining that the show is too small and makes no sense are just mad they didnt get tickets for the show.

This show is small by design.... to make it special for those who are actually going...

This isnt about money because if it was, the tickets wouldnt be $25 each.... This is about putting on a very small and intimate show and paying back the bar that let them play there a long time ago.

better that theres at least a chance to go created by that guy who sold for 250... maybe you busted your ass at work and got paid more and really want to go... why is there anything wrong with that?
