The Offspring (supported by various rubbish acts) 16th April 1997 – Civic Hall, Wolverhampton

The Offspring played at Wolverhampton as part of their spring ’97 Ixnay on the Hombre album, possibly their best to date. They were supported by an array of abysmal bands, who were so poor that I can’t even remember what they were called. Awful. I just remember that one was an all girl band, which portrayed themselves as a rock equivalent of the Spice Girls. Well, what a great concept to base an artistic offer around. 

The Offspring were good, not great, and not memorable. Among the songs that stood out were “Self-Esteem”, “Bad Habit” and “Gone Away”. Seem to remember coming away with a poor-quality long-sleeved t-shirt that I wore intermittently for a year or so.
