"We're bummed to be sharing this update, but after much consideration we've made the difficult decision to cancel the Canadian leg of the Let The Bad Times Roll tour with Simple Plan," said a message from The Offspring.
"There’s no point in us asking you to come out and see our kick-ass show if there’s a chance that everything could shut down at the last minute."
Anyone who purchased tickets will get refunds processed automatically to their method of payment.
The band's message added: "We're working hard to find a new time frame and we’ll be back to rock with you guys as soon as we can."
(Original story: Oct. 29, 2021 @ 9:30 am) - After months without live music, the large concert announcements continue to roll in!
The latest comes from The Offspring, who will be touring Canada in the early part of 2022 with Simple Plan coming along as the opening act.
The tour will swing through the Okanagan for a show at the SOEC in Penticton on Wednesday, March 2.
It’s the Let the Bad Times Roll tour, which is named after The Offspring’s 10th studio album released back in April.
Although they will certainly be playing some new tunes, you can also expect them to play the classics when they come to town.
That includes songs like “Come Out and Play,” “Self Esteem,” “Pretty Fly (for a White Guy),” “Hit That,” “Hammerhead” and “You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid.”
With the opening act being Simple Plan, it gives you even more of a chance to relive your teenage years full of angst with songs like “I’m Just a Kid,” “I’d Do Anything,” “Welcome to My Life” and “Perfect.”
Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, Nov. 5 at 10 am.
