Offspring To Launch Club Tour

Feb. 10 [10:00 EST] -- If you want to catch the Offspring in concert, you better move fast. The band will play only 14 U.S. dates before moving on to tour Europe.

The band will begin a string of U.S. club dates in support of the recently released "Ixnay on the Hombre" on February 19 in Boston and will stay east of the Mississippi before heading off to Finland on March 22. One interesting note: of the 14 dates on this winter tour, four are in the balmy climate of Florida.

If you don't happen to live near one of the venues that the Offspring will visit, you check out the band on the Internet. The group's homepage (offspring.com) features a full Offspring tour itinerary, video clips of the band, and sound files. The site, titled "The Offspring Guide to Web Anarchy" offers the standard band website fair, but also provides a link to the backyard revolution manual Anarchist Cookbook (if you know which link to hit).

However,

if you fancy a more human form of interaction with the band, you can catch them on the following dates:
