The Offspring & Simple Plan Are Coming To Ontario Next Year & It's The Early 2000s Again

Calling all 2000s punk fans! There's a "pretty fly" tour coming up for you. The Offspring and Simple Plan are touring Canada together next year and they are making several stops in Ontario.

The Offspring announced on October 29 that their Let The Bad Times Roll tour will be hitting several stages across Canada starting on January 27.

There will be five shows in Ontario alone and here's what the dates look like:

KINGSTON: February 5 at Leon's Centre

OTTAWA: February 6 at the Canadian Tire Centre

TORONTO: February 8 at the Scotiabank Arena

LONDON: February 9 at the Budweiser Gardens

ST. CATHARINES: February 11 at the Meridian Centre

Let The Bad Times Roll is The Offspring's 10th studio album, and the band's frontman and songwriter, Dexter Holland, said it's likely one of the most cathartic things they've written yet.

"The messages might be dark, but at the end what's left is that communication is important, working through feelings is important and most of all, hope is important," Holland said in the announcement.

The two bands will be heading further west for the rest of the tour, ending its Canadian leg in Vancouver on March 3.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, November 5, at 10 a.m. ET.

If you're a die-hard Raptors fan, you'll want to start wearing your mask properly if you want to watch the entire game. Scotiabank Arena has started to crack down on mask mandates and is kicking people out of the venue who aren't following the rules.

According to the Toronto Star, the number of Raptors fans ejected from the arena saw a slight uptick this week after 17 non-compliers were kicked out during the team's Tuesday faceoff against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Dave Chappelle is screening his latest documentary at Toronto's Scotiabank Arena next month, and despite the recent Netflix controversy, the event has already sold out. Now, scalpers are reselling the tickets online, and the prices are more than a little hefty.

Chappelle faced backlash following the release of his Netflix comedy special The Closer for his remarks about the transgender community, which caused a public outcry and sparked a companywide walkout in California.
