The original Misfits – aka Glenn Danzig (lead vocals), Jerry Only (bass, vocals), Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein (lead guitar), Acey Slade (rhythm guitar, vocals) and Dave Lombardo (drums) – seem to be planning a reunion show in New York City for the near future. The news comes via the above teaser photo released through Live Nation today. No exact details have been revealed, and we’ll keep you posted when more news drops.
Misfits are set to perform a show in Las Vegas, NV (as part of ‘Psycho Las Vegas’) in August, as well as gigs in Denver, CO, Oakland, CA and Seattle, WA in September (more info). If you recall, the band played NJ’s Prudential Center just last year, sharing the stage with Suicidal Tendencies, Murphy’s Law and Harley Flanagan.
Since their reunion at ‘Riot Fest’ 2016, Misfits have performed only a select few shows in the U.S., and according to a recent interview with Full Metal Jackie, Glenn has stated that the band don’t plan to do many more concerts.
In related news, Jerry Only will be at Forbidden Planet NYC (832 Broadway) tomorrow (7/11) from 6-8pm to celebrate the release of his very own Misfits Super7 Re-Action figure. Get more details HERE.
UPDATE: It looks like the NYC show will happen at Madison Square Garden, as per another teaser shot (see below) posted by Live Nation earlier this morning (7/11).
