Hello Offspring Fans,
The band are about to announce five special club shows that were just added to the upcoming European Tour.

For the occasion The Offspring will perform their Ignition album in it's 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 these shows do better than Ignition's initial record release party in Fullerton, California in 1992 - that only drew 25 diehard fans.

LONDON, ENGLAND
PARIS, FRANCE
BRUSSELS, BELGIUM
AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS
See you at the shows!

Can somebody send his personal link to me in PM? I go to Brussels, but I didn't recieve the link for the die-hard fans.

Their are only 2000 places in this venue and I really want to go over there.

Thanks.

Yea I wondered how long will it take to make non-public info public. I think theres no need to post it here even without the links. Theres a reason why they made via the emails.

Isti
04-29-2012, 03:54 AM
I posted it without links cause if you a hardcore fan you received the email so you know the link so i dont fucked up your chance to buy a ticket but in this thread we can talk about the shows, planning etc.etc..................

It should not ruin the possibility as the other thread did, but if it was made tomorrow could have been better. it seems we can't really hide a secret in here :D

Hello everyone! I've been lurking the forums for around 15 years now.. And now I have to start being active cause the Ignition-shows sound awesome!

Anyone from Sweden thinking about going? I could go on my own but it won't be the same and I've got no friends interested in going.. Since The Offspring aren't playing in Sweden this tour I have to go somewhere else to see them..

Or a live-cd released with days go by?

I haven't posted here in ages, but I do keep lurking these boards for news about the band. Somehow I didn't recieve the email with this news eventhough I've always been a member of the mailinglist.

Anyhow, I was wondering if someone could send me the link as well by pm because I HAVE to get to the Amsterdam show...

Again, look at me, I have less posts than you have. And the age or how long you've been a fan doesnt matter. How can they know how long I'm a fan of the band? I joined the forum in 2008, but I am Offspring fan since I was 8 (1997) and I was visiting the forum since 2001.

Amazing...secretly, I thought there was no chance of this happening! Oh, the power of low expectations. :D

On one hand, it appears I picked the wrong year to go to Paris. On the other hand, I got to see "You Will Find a Way" live, two night in a row. Plus, if they're taking Ignition to Europe, I'm sure they'll do it throughout the US. So I'm happy for you guys!:)

Krojd

It will be her second. The show @ HMH in 2004 was a headlining show as well;)

Edit: Actually her third, they played a headlining show at Huntenpop a day before the actual festival started.

RageAndLov
04-29-2012, 07:28 AM
Damn! This is too early for me most likely. Maybe I can do one of the London gigs, but I am really low on money right now, and plane tickets aren't cheap so close to the date. If this happened in July or August, or even September, this would be no problem at all for me. I just bought plane tickets and concert ticket for Against Me!, and I would gladly change that for a full Ignition show.
I really hope I can do the London gigs if I can find the money.

EDIT: It is so cool by the band do this. Playing Ignition in its entirety in Europe is really amazing!

04-29-2012, 07:54 AM
Fuck, that's so unfair. :(

I'm sensing that South America will be one of the fanbases that will be left out of this.

I really wish they'd announce these things in advance, though, and with more time to plan possible trips. If I'm not mistaken, the window of possibility to buy tickets for these shows ends tomorrow, right? How could I possibly fucking plan a trip to Europe in such a short period of time? Specially since I have never been abroad.

Well, but good luck to you guys, despite my sadness towards this, I hope that all BBSers who plan on going to these shows are able to go and have loads of fun! :)

Oh, and I won't post about these shows on theoffspringsite.com untill the tickets are sold out, which will be the day after tomorrow, right?

I sometimes hate the fact that their best fans are in Europe. If they did one of these shows in Arizona, I'd flip out. A pro-shot dvd of one of these shows would be amazing!

I think the only way is through the links in the e-mail. Because there isn't any other information about the tickets besides the links..

I agree. I wish they could announce the shows in advance, not 5 weeks before the show. That is what keeps me from going. Had they announced this a month earlier, I would be able for sure to go. That's the problem with Europe being so many countries though. Had I lived in any of those cities, travel would not have been an issue. I don't expect them to go all over Europe with this kind of show, as they would probably lose much money doing that. I think it's really great of them to do this for the core fans living in the biggest countries in Europe.

Older bands like the Offspring can't sell many seats in North America anymore (Americans tend to always want to listen to what's new and trendy, while Europeans tend to hold on to older stuff longer - not just with music, but even in general), but Europe has a much higher density of supportive places to play. You can play in ten cities just in Germany, and then go through France, Italy, Eastern Europe, etc and keep making a living on the road. It's hard to do that in the US, Canada, or South America, where the distances are greater between gigs. Even small cities in Europe have good support for live music and hard rock, unlike a similar sized town in the US where maybe a hundred people would show up.

I quite agree with everything you said, except for one thing: do you really think small american towns have less rock venues/tradition and fans compared to the european ones? I mean, it could be that Italy has none of what the USA have, even comparing big cities to smaller towns, but I was just wondering... :)

Guys, I'm really doubtful about the show to choose between Paris and Brusselles.

Brusselles would be better for the flight times, but Paris sounds better to me, I don't know I feel like that show will be greater.

Will I be able to take the flight of 6.30am the morning after the show?

About who the email went out to - it only went to fans in Europe. If you're signed up for the mailing list but didn't specify what city and country you're in, you may have missed it. Another reason to make sure you're signed up with your location information.

Those of you in those countries who missed out, I'm sure someone who got the email will help you out via PM.

Does anyone know how long an Offspring show typically is? (I've only seen them at festivals :x) Also, how long will it take me to get from the Melkweg back to the train station? I wanna try and calculate whether it's possible for me to get back home after the show.

Dexter_italy
04-29-2012, 03:20 PM
Offspring shows are 1:10\15 minutes long.

Anyone knows the cost of these tickes? I hope they won't cost too much (even if it's totally worth it). I know it can be as alex's bar since these are bigger venues, but still small for them :)

A DVD or recording of one of these shows would be amazing for long time fans of the album. I think this is the such a great idea. How would we push for this? Post post hassle hassle? Someone's idea of including it as a bonus with the new album (downloadable mp3 link perhaps) would be rad.

any good and cheap place to stay those nights in london?

Look up a hostel, any hotel will cost you your firstborn child.

They said I could just give them your first born child, so I accepted...

ahh - yeah it turns out I can't read. for some reason I parsed 4 may 12 as 'may 12'

9am on friday - http://www.o2shepherdsbushempire.co.uk/event/41428/the-offspring-tickets

Wow. It's a been a decent while since i replied to something here on the board. Apparently that happens everytime Europe sees another club show and everybody just gets super excited!

I myself decided to go for Amsterdam despite just returning from there today. Melkweg is an amazing venue beautifully located in the Amsterdam's most happening nightlife square.

For all of you who are also looking towards Amsterdam, The Flying Pig Uptown Hostel is a superb place to stay and just 10 min walk from the venue.

Melkweg pre-sale suppose to start in half an hour. Fingers crossed.

Time for me to write something about it.
I'm really surprised they're really doing it, I thought it was just Dexter's teasing, that idea of playing Ignition in its entirety. So it's really awesome it's going to happen, I'm so delighted. And the idea of letting fans buy the tickets before the others is also great.

And to all of the people who are searching for some cheap place to stay in, try to look for something on hostelworld.com. I used this site to book hostels a couple of times and so far I haven't been disappointed by the results.

Yup but I didn't have much time to spend on the internet when that happened, unfortunately.

Hmm.. apparently Amsterdam isn't sold out yet. And it costs 35 euros, a bit cheaper than Brussels. There's no time to waste, yet I need more time to think. Sucks a bit.
