The Offspring, one of rock’s most exciting and enduring bands, announced in March that they will hit the road this May for their first full North American tour in nearly 4 years and now, Dexter along with Noodles (guitar), Greg K (bass) and Pete Parada (drums) will be heading to the UK in August.
Following the success of the single Hammerhead and its follow-up You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid, The Offspring remain a favorite on the airwaves with Kristy, Are You Doing Okay?, the band’s third radio hit from their latest Columbia Records release Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace.
Produced by the legendary Bob Rock [Metallica, The Cult], the new album has forged new territory while staying true to the Offspring’s vision. Every song on their eighth studio release delivers, lengthening the list of accomplishments from a band that has performed over 1000 shows and has sold more than 34 million albums worldwide. Fifteen years after its release, their 1994 release Smash remains the highest-selling album of all time on an independent label.
Initial tour dates are listed below:
08/25/09 London, UK – O2 Academy Brixton
08/26/09 Manchester, UK – Academy
