i saw this date coming a mile away and hoped beyond hope it wouldn't actually be that night.

I'm buying tickets. However SOMEWHERE between oct 4 and oct 8 I need to travel to Philadelphia for
work. Knowing my schedule and the shows this year I'm willing to put SERIOUS money it will be Oct 5 :(

but for now? count me in!

I did manage to pull strings and go to that. but my recent track record has not been good. As it was I probably Shouldn't have been able to go Saturday haha.

That being said right? Further... not an irvine date is even more surprising. I wonder if Irvine will still pop up at some point.

EDIT: and yes I do realize that sounds really whiny of me given other people have less luck. And I do empathize with them since at one point in time I was one of those people with absolutely no hope of going to shows, even though i lived in california!

edit2: I should really stop whining huh...

Do you know how many tickets they typically limit one person to purchase for a pre-sale? I have a group of about 7 friends that want to go

Nah nothing wrong with whining imo...everyone has their own opinions. I just think they really do have a lot of SoCal-only shows and events, but it's understandable considering they all live here. Still, if I hadn't moved down earlier, the only one I'd be going to is the Oct 2 one in San Jose out of all of the things they've done so far this year. Which is a little unfair for some fans but yeah...I'm still bummed I didn't get to the Alex's Bar show and the Ignition shows in Europe. I want less of the regular shows and more of those!

No it doesn't say in the email or the livenation site (http://www.livenation.com/event/0900490FC0035251). I think if there is a limit it will probably say it when they actually open it up to purchase. Though if they haven't included it already maybe there isn't a limit at all :)

usually pre-sale limits are 2 right? but since there is ONLY general admin seating at palladium, I would guess there won't be a limit?

Usually at the Palladium it's all GA but you're able to go up on a balcony area if you want. No seats but if it's not crowded up there it's a decent view. The other side of the venue also has a balcony with seats but it's VIP.

Quick question, sorry if I am a noob. I purchased 6 tickets and it says GA2, row GA5, seats 51-56. Is this just a number printed on the ticket or is it assigned seating? I thought it was just general admission

Super excited... this will be my 5th offspring show.

I REALLY hope the future is now, dividing by zero and slim pickens are played. Also, I hope Hammerhead returns to the setlist as it hasnt been in the past few shows.

Did you try entering the password "SECRETS"? I went thru the livenation site and it wouldn't let me purchase until i put in the password.

And does anyone know how quickly the tickets that they sell at the Hollywood Palladium on Saturday morning get sold? I don't really want to pay the service fees and they sell the tickets there on Saturday mornings 10am - 2pm w/o service fees. Just want to make sure they don't sell out before I get a chance to purchase.

When I saw the Used at the beginning of the summer, I thought I'd bypass the fees and by at the venue. Lo and behold! Livenation charged me a fucking convenience fee per ticket there, too! Only saved me like five dollars total after we bought three tickets.

I went to the Palladium on Saturday at 10am and got my tickets (w/o service fees!) There wasn't even a long line when I got there or anything but when I turned around as I left the line had gotten about a half a block long. A lot of people were in line to buy tickets to other shows I think. Anyways it was pretty good to know about this for future shows that I might want to skip the fees for :)

show review http://www.ocregister.com/entertainment/bring-373841-mayhem-offspring.html

i think that guy is wrong dexter is a better singer then the girl from dead sara ^

also is it me or did oc guns kill the crowd? i think they could have played jennifer lost the war or something and it would have got the same reaction maybe even better?

FeliciaNitro
10-08-2012, 06:05 PM
yup agree with you oc guns was a weird choice and felt a little off. really loved gone away with the girl from dead sara though. i thought it was beautiful but of course i would have rather preferred dexter singing by himself on the piano :) ashamed to say i got almost black out drunk that night luckily i have some videos recorded. but my drunken singing is really embarrassing and at some places is even louder than the music :/ super fun though and great pics!
