Exclusive: Glenn Danzig performs with Samhain members, Misfits bandmate Doyle at Riot Fest 2011

On Friday, October 7, at Chicago's Congress Theater, a Danzig "Legacy" performance will be taking place as part of Riot Fest 2011. At the show, Glenn Danzig will reunite for a performance with members of his post-Misfits band Samhain, and he'll also be doing an onstage reunion with his Misfits bandmate Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein. A Danzig set is also part of the night. In a statement, Riot Fest founder Michael Petryshyn said:

“Everyone in music has a band or a musician that changed them.  For me, it is Glenn Danzig.  I am in music because of Danzig, Samhain and The Misfits.  I remember being a 10-year-old when my friend handed me Danzig, and it blew me away.  It was different…it was the first album for me, now looking back, where form matched content. Soon after, I found this entire wealth of music he wrote before 1988 and I became an even bigger fan. Musically, it opened my world to punk, metal and hardcore,”   “To have Glenn perform his solo works, to go on stage with Samhain for a set and, lastly, to play Misfits songs with Doyle will always be the one show I remember.”

Riot Fest tickets are on sale this morning at 11 a.m. EST. Other headliners include Weezer, the Descendents and Social Distortion.
