The Offspring recently announced their plans to head out on tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their hit album, Smash. In honor of the milestone, the band also announced that they will be performing the record in full during the tour as well as their sets at Riot Fest.
Before embarking on their Summer trek, the band warmed up by performing Smash in its entirety at Rock Am Ring in Germany. Thanks to someone, maybe the festival organizers, the footage from the show was record and is now available to watch. Of course hit songs, “The Kids Are Alright” and “Self-Esteem” made the cut since they are part of that album.
Pennywise and Bad Religion will be joining the Offspring on their “The Summer Nationals” Tour which will begin on July 29 in Pittsburgh.
