SoCal icons The Offspring, have announced an extra UK headline arena show at the Hull Bonus Arena on Friday November 19th. This is an especially important show as it has been set up to be in support of all frontline workers and the NHS – with an allocation of free tickets available for local frontline workers AND proceeds from the sales of the show will go to the registered NHS charity NHS Charities Together.

“If not for the hard work and successful rollout of the vaccine programs by the NHS there wouldn’t even be any live concerts to play! We’re so thrilled to be coming back, finally, to the UK and we’re looking forward to giving something back to those who have stepped up and given so much. Rock on!!!”

Frontman and guitarist Dexter Holland along with bandmate and guitarist Noodles reworked and reworded their classic “Come Out and Play” so the chorus ran “You’ve Got To Go get Vaccinated”.

Tickets for this show go on general sale Friday 24th September at 10am.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
