Offspring return to UK in summer

The Offspring will play two UK dates in August, they’ve confirmed.

Dexter Holland and co play The Apollo in Manchester on August 25, then the O2 Brixton Academy in London on August 26. Tickets go on sale at 9am on March 20 (Friday).

Frontman Holland last year discussed the 20th anniversary of landmark album Smash, saying: “When you go back to it, you see it from a new angle and go, ‘That was kind of cool – it was raw and straightforward.’”

The Offspring released latest single Coming For You in January.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
