    Smile how would I go about meeting the offspring after the show?

    I've recently bought my tickets for The Offspring & 311 at Jones Beach !
    Last year my bf and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary in NJ at our first Offspring show. Now it's year four and we're excited to see our favorite band again!

    I got the tickets, but I need to know if the band does meet & greets before the show. I didn't see anything on the venue's site and don't really know what to do first.

    any information would be helpful-- thanks!!

    Heh, that can only mean you've only seen three of his posts.

    I've said this before, but... I really hate your avatar...
    Because you thought she was hot until you realized she was a dude and now you have that conflicted feeling inside? Fuhgeddaboudit. Happens to all of us...

    On topic: I'm not an expert at this as I've only tried it once, but I believe your best bet is to find the tour buses before the show and then go back to them as soon as the show is over (and I mean make a beeline, because others will do the same). Didn't work for me, but only because they had to catch a flight as soon as they got off stage. Sum 41 came out to see us, though.

    Nice try ... I would love to see you succeed, where so many before you have failed. Try not to be so sensitive about Jojan's posts, it is not worth the aggravation.

    Back on topic: Short of having something arranged with the band before the concert, your best bet is what Randy suggested.

    pretty much unless you get an invite to meet n greet (they dont always have them and getting invites can be tough sometimes), you have to find the buses. If they have time after the show, they know that is where they'll find loyal fans. Me and randman met their tour manager, who regretfully informed us poor ol' bbsers that they had to catch a flight. nice guy.

    However listen for radio contests. We got to meet Dexter and Noodles when one of the radios had a mini-show and meetngreet with the offspring.

    leave them alone. what could be worse than having a stranger coming up to you and saying how great they think you are..

    you: "Wow, I love you Dexter. Your music amazing. Your show was so good tonight."

    dexter: "er, thanks.."

    what can he say..
    bullshite..

    except for the fact that they generally don't ride in the tour buses anymore, opting to fly instead, thus making the only reason for them to come out by the buses being to meet the fans.

    Well, it's not like she wants to go into the bus and finish the tour with them. People wait by the buses all the time, and the bands come out if they want to.

    I've tried to hang around after shows, but I got kicked out by security.

    I wanna know, is it easier to meet them if it's a festival or if it's just Offspring's show?

    the only festival i've been to with them, they had fencing all around blocking the parking lot and you could only get to the buses with a crew pass.

    But i will add that on warped tour, they ventured out into the crowds to check out some of the other acts according to atom's "on the road" journal.
