The Offspring were on their way through Quebec when their SUV burned down [UPDATED]

Going on the road can be fraught with unexpected challenges. Take The Offspring, for example. On their way to appear at Les Grandes Fêtes TELUS in Rimouski, Quebec, they encountered a problem. The SUV caught fire so fast that the driver didn’t even have a chance to pull over to the side of the road.

While traveling through Canada yesterday, something flew off the vehicle in front of us and became wedged underneath one of our SUVs and it caught fire. Everyone got out safely, but the luggage, passports, laptops and pretty much everything else was destroyed.

We are happy to report that everyone is doing ok, and we’ve made it safely to Rimouski and will be performing tonight at Les Grandes Fetes TELUS. Hope to see everyone there!
