Hi guys,

Not sure if anyone can help, but im planning my journey to Offspring @ Shepherds Bush, it says doors open at 7.00pm and the show starts at TBC...

How long would the show go on for? as the last coach back home leaves at 11.30pm!!

And I need to make my way all the way back to the coach station (about 30 mins) afterwards from the concert hall :confused:

Pretty sure the venue has a curfew at 11 so the show is likely to be over by then.

well it sorta depends where your coach is going from, but im gonna assume victoria. You'll probably be wanting to go on the central line to oxford circus, then down to Vic, but bear in mind that victoria tube is at least 10 mins walk to the coach station (if you're quick)

You also want to take into account the possibility of delays, and also, if going to the show on the 5th - the possibility of a fucked up tube schedule cause of the jubilee. (double check a few days before the impact)

Having said that, most gigs at 'prime' venues in london tend to finish well in advance of curfew (curfew usually 11pm, but gigs tend to be done by 10.30pm-10.45), so you should be pretty much fine.

I'd just suggest travelling light and not putting anything in the cloakroom so you can get out nice and quick.

I'll be there on 5-th of June, my first time seeing them live, oldschool fan, back from 1994.
Favorite album surely Ignition.

hiya , i am travelling from yorkshire and have the same problem. Curfew for shows are usually eleven ish ........ . Me and my brother have opted to stay overnight in london and head home the next morning. Its costing us £17.50 for the megabus there and back which is pretty good and £30 each for bed and breakfast in a twin room 0.2 miles from shep. bush empire ...... i think we have done pretty good.
You cant really count on tubes being on time and i dont think its near victoria ...... hope this helps :D

Hey guys,

I'm going to the show @ Shepherd's Bush Empire on 5th June and I'm booked on a coach that leaves Victoria @ 11:30pm.

I was thinking of booking a taxi from Shepherd's Bush Empire at 11pm to get to the coach station. Google says it's a 15min journey, so even allowing for bank holiday traffic I should be alright for my coach, shouldn't I?

Thanks!!!!!!!

Yeah you could, but bear in mind that it's a bank holiday, so taxi's will be much more expensive than usual, plus you might have trouble tracking it down in the post-gig chaos.

does anybody got the the tickets?or they didn't ship them yet?

They wrote me, they can't send the tickets outside the UK, so I have to collect them before the show. The bad thing is - the box office opens at 19.00hrs. I wanted to be right in front of stage,but I don't think I can make it...

For the french show in bataclan I printed the tickets.. but I don't really know how does it worksThere should be a barcode or something on it, which is unique for each ticket. They scan it, you get in.

Hello :), I haven't posted here for quite a while but i am determined to start coming here among you on regular basis again :D I am so happy i managed to get tickets to both London shows, so want to ask if you're gonna do any special bbs meeting, or if just some of you who is going as well would meet up before show(s) and have a few drinks after, and maybe co-ordinate accommodation eventually?...some hostels? :)

i have just booked the hostel :) still cant believe it... last summer when Offspring were touring Europe, i was gonna go to some shows but then it failed because i lost the job and got no money and was soo dissapointed, and if someone would tell me that in a year i will see them twice in a row and playing entire Ignition...simply i would NEVER believe it ... but in a week it is going to happen and it's just the greatest feeling i've ever had!!!:D SEE YA THERE

btw: does anyone know if there is gonna be any opening band? ticket says 'plus guest'..

Krojd
05-29-2012, 03:05 PM
Have a good one, fellas, you too Arnold161 or should I say OFFSPRINGMAN? :) I still kinda also cant believe I will hear whole Ignition, I've spend so many times with that record, mornings, sunsets, rainy days... falling asleep together :D I will probably pass out at the show.

arnold161
05-29-2012, 03:40 PM
I am sure we're all gonna have a great time:) well I would stick with Arnold161 for now, OFFSPRINGMAN is past :D yeah i know what you are saying, record is a big part of my life as well... i know they will probably play the songs in same order as on the record, but if they would open with LAPD, i'm passing out right away..

as far as I know, there would not be any meet and greet outside of festival's , where radios/labels sometimes organize some. Unless you're Tijs or oxy...

DURANGO RIOT will be the opening band for both shows.

06-01-2012, 02:31 PM

I haven't seen them in 10 years, but I should some day. If this show wasn't a few days before the NOFX show at the Empire, I would have probably gone, but I can't afford 2 shows so close at the moment.

Dana
