    Oh it's 2001

    I used to be a big fan back in the 90's until I saw them live........

    At 58 + fees for a standing ticket, I'll suspect there'll be a lot of empty space. A complete rip off. As great as they were up to Americana, The Offspring are one of the worst live bands around. Autotune has a lot to answer for in the studio.

    I dont see how €60 for two bands is cheap? Ive seen videos of the Offspring live and yea they cant really sing live but it seems to be a bit of fun. Plus the Hives as support is a bonus, It wont sell out but id say it will still pull a decent crowd.

    Edit - found link via threeplus website so all sorted

    Anyone got working link for the 3 presale? Link in the text msg with my presale code doesn't work, and using link in 3plus app brings me to andre rieu on Ticketmaster....

    It isn't. 60 for those two bands is a complete rip off. While both are fun on CD, neither are great live. The "hello, we're the Haves" gets old fast and I cannot stress enough how awful the offspring are. They cannot hold a tune.

    I've never seen them live but from what I've seen on YouTube etc. they are fairly solid but Dexter does struggle slightly in the vocal department. Surely he's gotten better over the years?

    I remember Deftones used to be woeful live back in the early late 90s/early 00s but they got it together somewhat over the years.

    In terms of the price its not the worst, as far as I remember Slipknot last year was around €15 more.

    But would you be bothered!?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,006 ✭✭✭xpletiv


    Was delighted to see this announced and got 3 presale tickets today for me and 2 mates.

    17 years since they were here last, and that is when I last saw them, back when the Point was still practically a cow shed. Never went over to european festivals where they often played so great to finally see them grace Irish soil again. Was huge into them at that stage. Still love their first 6 albums and play them regularly. Smash is a quality album still today.

    But nostalgia is what this is all about. Hoping for a set list to appeal to the 30year+ crowd that will be there. To me it was one of those 'price doesnt matter' buys, its getting to see them again more than anything in Ireland when the trip home is jumping on the luas :D

    Surely it's worse he'd be getting, no?

    In most cases practice usually makes you better.


  • Registered Users Posts: 556 ✭✭✭keeponrockin


    I was just happy to see an offer of a presale ticket on my phone from three..like back in the Good Ol days :)

    Within certain limits. I won't end up as good as Tiger Woods if I keep practicing.
    People have genetic limits with their voices, and I think we all know the limit of Dexters voice talents. I'm sure he could get training, but if he hasn't bothered up to this point, doubtful he will.

    I'm just surprised they can manage to play somewhere like the Three Arena.

    It probably varies from singer to singer. A lot of rock singers aren't properly trained and some strain their vocal cords over the years.

    Not necessarily worse per se but some will also lose some of their range particularly around the high end.

    Of course years of practice and experience may offset that but there are many factors.

    Tickets in the bag... Excited for this one


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,711 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Ian Browne of the stone roses is one of the worst live singers ever but the atmosphere glosses over it

    This could be a fun nostalgic night, going to wait til closer to get a ticket


  • Moderators, Music Moderators Posts: 14,863 Mod ✭✭✭✭Furious-Red


    I'm really enjoying the new single, its fairly catchy.

    Yeah it is very catchy, you'd swear it's one of their older songs


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,171 ✭✭✭1huge1


    Think I'm going to give this gig a go.

    Was a big fan when I was a kid, seen them at Rock Werchter in Belgium a few years back and they were average, but hopefully in an arena it'll be better.

    Just great to finally be back to the stage where we are booking concerts!

    Slipknot would add 15 euro or more in value to offspring

    2 standing tickets purchased with ease.


  • Moderators, Music Moderators Posts: 14,863 Mod ✭✭✭✭Furious-Red


    Tickets sorted :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 641 ✭✭✭creativedrinker


    Can’t believe (well I can) that ticket master have upped their fee and are no longer posting tickets...


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,711 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Bite the bullet and got a ticket, Block F row 28

    If it gets rescheduled its gets rescheduled but nice to have the ticket paid for. Would be over the moon it this takes place in November

    Paid using a revolut card so should get some money back


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,929 ✭✭✭✭Ash.J.Williams


    I’m thinking of going just to get a gig in :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,171 ✭✭✭1huge1


    Exactly, I'd be fairly confident that this should go ahead.

    Vaccinations should be done by a few months at that stage.

    With Sepultura playing a few days later it’s like a trip down memory lane. I’ll never take gigs for granted again!
