Come Out And Play

The Offspring's gonna give it to you, baby, ah ha ah ha...when they come through town, that is. Dexter Holland decided to start a punk rock band after being barred from entering a Social Distortion show in 1984. Holland's brainchild, which would later become The Offspring, has gone on to sell more than 50 million records worldwide. And they're not done yet. Twenty-five years later (with three out of four original members), The Offspring is set to tour North America for the first time in four years. The "Shit Is Fucked Up Tour" will stop at Nokia Theatre in Grand Prairie on Wednesday, May 20. Alkaline Trio and Street Dogs will also perform. Tickets are $39 and can be purchased through ticketmaster.com.
