If I remember correctly, the question is about backstage passes. Anyone can meet the Offspring, though. You just have to be in the right place at the right time and talk to the right people. In fact, quite a few people here have been fortunate enough to meet them.

When I went to St. Louis for my sister's wedding, by sheer coincidence I stayed in the same hotel as Green Day! I met them as they walked to their tour buses to leave. I'm going home again to visit.....conveniently while the Warped Tour is in St. Louis. I think I'll stay in the same hotel again.....maybe the Offspring will stay there? It would be awesome to meet them!

They'll probably be sleeping on their bus. Dexter said that the Vandals guys described the Wapred Tour as "fantasy camp, with emphasis on the 'camp' part."

I'm pretty sure leo is right. I remember watching an interview with a band that played at the Warped Tour and they said that all the bands slept in their bus.

The Offspring are bigger than most bands who go on the Warped Tour. They can probably better afford staying in hotels than the other bands.

lol, i don't think that The Offspring would stay in a motel either, and backstage passes for $200....? the whole most pit would be backstage after the show... I respect that they don't make backstage passes, although i would really love to meet them, expecialy Dexter, he's my Idol :p

Yeah, if anyone claims to have been able to buy backstage passes, don't trust 'em. You can't buy those things.

AmieTripodi
06-14-2005, 05:34 AM
On Loveline, Dexter said that he was going to take the bus for the first part of the tour, and then fly his plane. So maybe that means he'll stay in a hotel?

How is he able to get backstage passes? They usually only give them to people who are a part of the tour, and even then they only give out a few extra passes for those people's close friends and relatives.

06-14-2005, 08:07 PM
I meant that his dad knows one of the bands. Should have been more specific.

I really don't thinK I should believe him until I actually see them.

If it is true, I will harp on him for bragging to me on the phone for 15 minutes and asking if I was jealous multiple times.

Don't believe the rumors about Dexter being a jerk. He's a super-sweet guy and doesn't act like a "rock star" at all. Watch out for Atom, though, as he likes to stalk fans.

how dare they!?! Dex really is great, in all the interviews and stuff he does he isnt all... (fill in the blank)...at all, he's really nice and talks just, 'normally', if you know what i kinda mean...

There were rumors going around last year that Dexter has a "rock-star ego." The first time I heard this rumor was at a show last year. As I've said, Dexter has been nothing but nice and gracious each time our paths have crossed.

i never know where to get the info from, unless my friend tells me. He annoys the hell out of me though and only does it in a 'i know this and u dont' way. But at least i get another bit of info, however much he gloats.

Really; Atom a stocker?! Last I knew he was happily married...where do you get your information from, the tabloids?

What I mean is that if Atom sees people hanging out before the show he'll initiate a conversation. Maybe he likes to meet the fans or he wants to see how long it will take for someone to figure out who he is. I know this from personal experience.

I had backstage passes to an Offspring show on the CO1 tour. But I didn't buy them, they were given to me.

And yeah, whoever says Dexter is a jerk is totally wrong...he's ridiculously nice.

06-24-2005, 11:40 PM
Dexter and Noodles are really nice.

I got to talk to them on the Rockline radio show in May 2004.

they are very smart and witty and nice. and Dexter is kind of a flirt too :cool:

FaceTheFlames
06-25-2005, 12:48 AM
Y'know. I thought for so long that I wanted to meet Green Day because they initially were my inspiration to aspire to music.. but Dexter and the rest of the Offspring have proven that there is still much to be said for the educated artist. I went to the Warped Tour in Pompano Beach last year, and I never saw any of the Artists just walkin from stage to stage.. Anyone ever been to Warped Tour and met some band members? I just want to say hi to Offspring and thank them for their inspiration. Of course that sounds gay.. but it's true. Oh yeah.. $75.00 for tix sux. I paid $27 for Orlando, and Green Day tix were selling for $55 at the door in Orlando in April, so.. CA must be real expensive.

You guys are so lucky to have met the offspring,i am not worthy,
let me explain....i am a 15 year old drummers who live in a shit place called South Africa who was exposed to the amazing sounds of the most amazing band known to mankind when i was 7.i am now playing session drums in the studio for an small salery to pay for my drum studies.To meet the offspring would make my heart swell.

Yeah, that sounds like Atom, he's a real character sometimes :)

Anyways, this is supposed to be about meeting the Offspring right? Well, I've personally been introduced to everyone in the band except Dexter, maybe during their next tour I'll finally met him. :rolleyes:

Here's my opinion on the rest; Atom is a cool and fun guy to hang out with.
Noodles is the biggest sweetheart ever, he's very genuine and is very happy doing what he does. Greg seems a little shy, but sweet none the less.

So, all you Offspring fans, all I have to say is that you couldn't have picked a better band to be fans of; these guys not only play great music but are really an awesome bunch of guys too! :D

07-08-2005, 12:33 AM
Yeah i didnt want to miss much of Armor for Sleep and FFTL today so i got there and they ended the signing line at me. So that sucked. Only member of the offspring that came over and signed my cd cover was Atom. I love that guy, then i asked him what flashback song they were gonna play and he asked what we wanted to hear and we said "kick em when hes down." They played it. They closed the show... guarantee that the sacramento crowd will be their best crowd the entire tour.

I was at the Warped Tour yesterday in Boise. We got to meet them at the Myspace.com tent for a signing. They all were incredibly polite and easy to talk to. Noodles appeared to really enjoy talking to the fans that were there. They signed my son's skateboard and seemed especially happy to sign something other than the posters that were given out. They also took a few seconds (with a hundred people behind us) for us to get a picture with them.

@ sitdyneshelagh: If I told you all my secrets I would have to kill you. I really don't like to share my stories out of fear that people will think I'm a liar and/or a braggart.

@ Amber: You really should meet Dexter. He's not as talkative as Noodles but I would say he's the nicest out of all of them.

And to answer a few questions, to date I have met the Offspring 5 times. After July 24, that number could change.

I went to the Warped Tour in S.F. and I thought that since The Offspring were the biggest band there, they would play late in the day. . . I was wrong. :( The ride I went with left late so we didn't get there until 12:40 and then found out that The Offspring were playing at 1:00. :mad: My friend and I were so pissed. By the time we got to the stage, there were so many people that we couldn't get to the front. I was so devastated when I found out they weren't signing. I took my poster of Dex and Noodles and it got messed up. I want to meet them so bad. I plan on going to their next concert so maybe I'll get to meet them. . . . :o

Me and my 2 friends met Noodles after their show in Milwaukee. We just waited by the gate next to the stage and waited to spot someone. we got noodles to come over and he signed our shirts and we got pictures with him and he talked us and other fans. He's pretty cool, but I wish I could've met the other guys.
You just gotta have patience and know where to look.

I want to congratulate you!! :cool: you where very lucky to meet the guys 5 times. I wish I could, but unfortunatly I live in the Ass of the world ( Argentina) , it's a great country. But Offspring don't came here very often, so I don't have any chance of meeting them. But Anyway can you tell me how did you do that, was before or after the show??
I'll thank you if you could tell me that :D

I got to meet the Offspring. I was at the Warped Show in Vancouver BC, and they were doing the MySpace signing. I was about 8th or so in line. I got 7 things autographed... when I get back from my holidays I will try and get some pictures up. I got a picture of Dexter, and one of Noodles and Greg together. (but none of me with them) I did get one of Noodles signing my brothers "boob" though. That turned my brother into a fan. haha And just before we left for the day, my brother spotted Dexter going behined the fence and meeting up with the rest of the band to great some people from a radio station. I happened to have a letter for the band... so my boyfriend (at the time) asked if I could go back there and give them the letter.. so he let me in. When I got up to them, their tour manager (I beleive it was) asked if I was from the radio station.. i said I wasn't but the guard had let me in, so he said "ok, well here are the guys" so I ended up talking to Higgins for a couple mins, then he said he was going to give the letter to the singer.. so he walked over and gave it to Dexter and he looked at it and was like "Anthrax?" haha... he shook my hand and we talked about my friends offspring website for a couple mins. And just before I left the tour manager asked if I had gotten everything I needed (he was a nice guy) and then I thanked the guys and left! It was amazing.. but I had no film left on my camera by then, but I am not lying to you guys. I took a whole role of film at the signing booth, and when they played.. because I wasn't expecting this. They are real nice guys, and act very level to their fans! :)
So you can met them, just keep your eyes open! ;)

I wasn't at one of the events with the signings unfortunately, but I did manage to find dexter hanging out by the Nitro Tent. I got His Signature, but I didn't actually say anything to him. It probably shouldn't be classified as a conversation, went more like this.


Me: Hi
Dex: Hey.
Me: Holds Out Card.
Dex: Signs it and I walked away.
