Deciding to make a show special, one that would have otherwise been cancelled if L'Olympia didn't happen to be available tonight, is not troll behavior.

I wasn't telling that I don't believe it :) it's just a thing never happened, the setlist is pretty good the way it is. They rushed it because of the facts happened. No songs from days go by too, but I think that since they played the whole ignition nobody complained :D

It is rather strange of them to exclude Days Go By from the set-list.

And only 8 songs for the "greatest hits" set, i really doubt it

Jesus

the show was played with borrowed equipment, so that might explain the "weird" setlist


Metropolis is now a crime scene. The Offspring have no access to the venue, which still contains last night's production set-up and the band's instruments and gear from Monday night's show. While it is no longer possible to stage a show at Metropolis, the band have found gear to borrow and will make tonight's show happen at The Olympia instead (1004 St-Catherine Est, Montréal, Québec, H2L 2G2).

The methhead with whom I nearly got into a fistfight at the Del Mar show probably wouldn't.

Ignition is great, but I don't think their base in the US would appreciate it. I think they played it the right way in the US, even though that means I didn't get to see it.

yeah i guess your right about that but still i think it would have been nice to have another show in southern california for the people who could not go

i hope if they play smash in 2014 they do it at irvine meadows so everyone who wants to go is able to

also i wonder what kind of reception it got in montreal?

A SMASH show would be another kind of event. SMASH one of the defining albums of 90s. Ignition isn't.
A lot of people NO-OFFSPRINGFAN would like to watch they play SMASH, so I guess Irvine would be a great setting for the show.

A Smash and the self titled record tour, for the win.

i agree i know 4 or 5 people who don't like offspring anymore but would definitely go to a smash show
