The O.C. Supertones Announce Final Show and "Supertones Strike Back" 20th Anniversary Celebration

It’s bittersweet news I announce today. Well loved Orange County, CA. ska/punk band The O.C. Supertones have indeed announced their last show ever and 20th anniversary celebration of the classic album “Supertones Strike Back” taking place at Shoreline Church in San Clemente, CA. June 3rd with Pax 217 opening the show. Tickets go on sale March 17th at OCSUPERTONES.com for $20ea. There is also an awesome “Ultimate Fan Experience” ticket available for $200 that includes a whole bunch of fun activities and goodies that you can read more about below (on sale now). The band will be playing the whole “Supertones Strike Back” album in full plus plenty of other classic tunes. I grew up listening to this band and over 20 years later I can count myself (and a few of our family members) as fans. While I am saddened by the announcement that this band will be no more in the future, I am comforted by the fact that us fans will get one last opportunity to enjoy their music in a live setting. It’s hard to believe that it has been 20 years since the release of the definitive Supertones album “Supertones Strike Back”. Join the event page on Facebook here.
