The Offspring dominated alt rock radio in the mid- to late '90s after their 1994 release Smash unleashed mega singles like "Come Out and Play" and "Self Esteem." Unlike certain bands from that era that faded away after achieving major hits (Gin Blossoms, the Spin Doctors), the Offspring's offering reached a different plain and has been certified Platinum six times over.
And now, they're looking to ride out that high by touring on the album to celebrate its 20th anniversary, performing it cover to cover in select cities, including nearby Port Canaveral, where the California '90s punk revivalists booked a show at the Exploration Tower Saturday, August 16 alongside Pennywise and Bad Religion. Tickets are $35 and go on sale tomorrow, May 16 at 10 a.m.
