It's really a shame when so smart guys like Jebus, Lullaby, Hysteria & me don't meet Offspring but jerks like Sascha (am I right Lullaby?? Of course I am :mad: )

Just know? How? Did you go through the 'old bbs members' thread? -laughing-
But it's really nice to see you again. I was missing you & your stalking ;)

thats cool man, I`ve seen them two times. Once at the Lowlands festival this year. The day after the Offspring played I went backstage. Too bad that I`ve missed them :(

axlpxl
10-21-2004, 03:04 PM
how did you get in backstage?

Obie2trice
10-21-2004, 03:12 PM
A friend of mine was there and he had to write about some political thing ( which was there too ). So he got a backstage pass. When they asked me why I was with him, I told these security guards I was a member of a internet site and I had to write a story about a band which was playing at that moment. They believed me, and we`ve been walking backstage for like 2 hours. It wasn`t that great, because if I went backstage a day earlier I could have met the offspring

I met them in May in Montreal, all of them , even Higgins! :) I waited in the back of the Metropolis and then Dexter came first and then Atom and Chris Higgins came. Higgins told us that the rest of the band and him would be at the Foufounes Électrique ( a bar near of the Metropolis) so we went there and I talked to Noodles and met Greg. Higgins also talked to me again like 10 seconds.They all signed my ticket and my Splinter booklet. It would be cool if I'd have taken pictures of them , too bad I didn't have a camera.

10-21-2004, 03:30 PM

I'm sorry, it was a short reaction. I did it without thinkin about it. Just in the moment I clicked on the delete button I was like 'oh shit, no, what about Jebus now?' I'm just glad the bbs opened now that "quickly" before you start to forget me ;)

10-21-2004, 04:12 PM
I live in Argentina, and the only time i can see The offspring, was at the show that they did in the Luna Park Stadium in 1999, buy I can only reach Dexter and Greg...the others stay inside for a long time and the security dont let us go inside...too bad..

Subsidal
10-21-2004, 04:14 PM
Yeah, in December I'll be in Paris for two days with the class. It fucking sucks, I really don't want to go, but I have to :mad:

I'm on vacation now, that's why I have time that week to spend on the computer, and 'cause my brother won't be here that week. Avter the week school starts again & so I'll only be on on weekends.

I'm on for probably 3 hours now. But you're right, I'd actually already be sleeping (it's 1:15 am) but I can't leave the board yet :D

I met Dexter and Noodles in december 2003 when they visited the local radio station. I got them to sign my co1 cd and took pictures with them. It was really cool, too bad Greg didn't come though.

Damn you all! lol, I've never gotten the chance! Damn Canada, The Offspring hardly comes here and when they do its never at my city. They went to Montreal (which is 2 hours away from me) in March, I was going to go but my dad didn't have enough money to take me there and I would've gotten crapy seats anyway. But there will be a next time... hopefully, and I'll make sure to get floor tickets :D and somehow a backstage pass...

I have met the Offspring five times in the past seven years. The most recent meeting was on May 11 in Minneapolis. I scored a VIP pass from their new production manager and had fun hanging out with the guys. Even though they may not remember my name, they have recognized my face (Noodles even compared me to Oxygene).

In montreal you could sit where you want, there were seats but if you wanted you could be in the front. The Metropolis is not really big so you missed something! But they went in your area, no? Anyway , it's pretty sure they will come again with the next album.

Damn! u guys are pretty lucky! the first time offspring came to Brazil was in 1999, but i was 11 and the nearest city was about 8 hours from my city lol
Then, monday,october 18, they made a great show near from my city, Porto Alegre, about 3 hours from it. Just beeing there was the best moments ever in my life.., i cannot wonder myself meeting one of the guys lol

The first time meeting them was very surreal. Imagine what it's like being so used to seeing someone in photos in a magazine or on the Web, and in video and audio formats on the radio and TV, but now the barrier of a page or screen has been removed. I will also add that the Offspring guys are quite tall in person. I have photos with the guys and I look like a hobbit next to them! Not even boots with a 2" heel could even out the height difference! (I'm only 5'1".)

10-21-2004, 06:17 PM
Did you make the chicago show?

Cool man. I would say it was an awesome show...but it was my only offspring show. But it was really good and fun. I was like 2nd row.

How do you get backstage passes?

leo3375
10-21-2004, 06:29 PM
How do you get backstage passes?

Win 'em off the radio or other contest, know someone who works for a part of the tour (venue, promoters, booking agents, the tour crew, etc.), or talk to a tour manager (Fitzjoy or Judd will be your best bet at an Offspring show).

For the last one, the key is to just be cool and be yourself. If there's someone in the band you want to meet, you may need to state exactly why you want to meet them. With a little luck, and being in the right place at the right time, you'll get to meet the guys.

So true that they are tall, I felt small lol. Atom is not really tall through.

Dexter and noodles are the same hieght as me, 6'02. So dexter and my eye level were the same.

He's about 5'9". Higgins has to be no taller than 5'7".

Any good ideas to make my changes bigger to meet the guys on the next tour ??? How were you guys able to meet them ???

leo3375
10-23-2004, 02:12 PM
Well, you can try to win backstage passes or VIP passes. They usually have Meet-N-Greets after their shows, and passes are usually only given to contest winners. You could also hang out by the buses or in the venue after the show. Then there's tracking down a tour manager. Tour managers sometimes have extra backstage or VIP passes, and talking to these guys can be very beneficial.

My only secret is being in the right place at the right time and talking to the right people.

Another tip: acting like a groupie will most likely be unsuccessful. The Offspring have said that they don't do the groupie thing, regarding it as degrading and harmful to all parties.

The following morning I had to take my parents to the airport and when I climbed out of the car, the whole band got out of a van parked right behind us!!!! Talked to Dexter, Noodles and Greg. Got Dexter to sign a shitty piece of paper I had on me. I wish I had one of my CDs or my guitar there....

I met Higgins in Edmonton in 2001 and I stared at Ron while he stared back at me for about 30 seconds while he walked to the bus. I was going to go up to him, but I didn't know what to say. I was the only person who noticed him and as soon as the security dude noticed that I spotted him he started following him to the bus. That was the best night of my life. I still have to meet Noodles though. That's one of my goals.

Yeah , it is possible, I met them without backstage pass. Just wait in the back of where they played after the show and maybe you'll meet them. That's what happened to me, after that I went to a bar near and the band was there.

I did that in Edmonton and security was being a bunch of dinks. I met Higgins doing that and I think I might have saw Noodles get on the bus and I think I may have seen him in it when I climbed on top of a payphone. The light that was on inside wasn't bright enough to let me see well through the tinted windows.

Yes, I'm really tall (6"4)! Dexter is a tall dude as well - here's a picture with Noodles. He's another super cool dude... my glasses got smashed at the Toronto show.. (kicked off my face), so he was telling me where to get Noodles Glasses. ahaha

My web site is http://www.listen.to/offspring (Dave's Offspring Page) maybe some of you have been to it before.

Holy shit! His fingernails sure are long for a guitarist.

I have met the Offspring five times in the past seven years. The most recent meeting was on May 11 in Minneapolis. I scored a VIP pass from their new production manager and had fun hanging out with the guys. Even though they may not remember my name, they have recognized my face (Noodles even compared me to Oxygene).

hm... how so? :)

Noodles talked about someone at their East Coast shows that he's met, like, 95 times. I had a feeling it was you he was talking about. He knew me from their last few shows in Minneapolis.

i met the offspring. dexter signed my red cadillac. it read, "pull me over! dexter holland" i also gave dexter my spiked necklace, when i went backstage, and i've seen pics with him wearing it, which was a thrill to me. yeah, i didn't think they liked groupies, but i think i've become one. i still can't believe ron left the band. hopefully soon i'll put up a website with all my offspring pics to share with everyone!

Yay!
I met Atom 2 times. And I met Greg, Noodles, and Higgins. Still haven't met Dexter.

I have the greatest picture of me and Noodles.

Noodles told me he and I are both rockstars. And Higgins gave me his setlist and basically said I'm the biggest offspring fan in Philly.

It's really hard to get backstage - I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time.
