The Offspring have added an extra show to their November tour with the new Hull date created to support the NHS and frontline workers. Free tickets will be allocated to local frontline workers, and all proceeds from the show will go to 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,” Dexter Holland told MetalTalk. “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!”

Support for the new Hull date is to be confirmed. Tickets for this show go on general sale Friday 24 September at 10 am.
Holland, who has a PhD in molecular biology, along with bandmate and guitarist Noodles, has reworked and reworded their classic Come Out and Play with a chorus that runs, “You’ve Got To Go get Vaccinated”.
We can’t wait to get out there and play shows again. And we hear from you guys all the time letting us know that you can’t wait either! But let’s face it… live shows aren’t gonna happen until you go get vaccinated. So we thought we’d have a little fun with one of our old songs. pic.twitter.com/uBnwcEWgqV
