THE OFFSPRING announce an extra UK show at Hull Bonus Arena on Friday 19th November in support of frontline workers and the NHS.
As well as allocating free tickets to local frontline workers, proceeds from the show will go to the NHS charities.
SoCal icons and one of rock music’s best-selling bands of all time, The Offspring, have today 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.
“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!!!” – Dexter Holland from THE OFFSPRING
Frontman and guitarist Dexter Holland (who has a PHD in molecular biology) along with band mate 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.
