Billed as the classic Misfits lineup's “triumphant return to where it all began” and their “only area performance,” the band teased the NYC-area show over the weekend when Live Nation NYC posted the Misfits logo to their social media pages with the hashtag #ALLHELLSGONNABREAKLOOSE.
The classic Misfits lineup first reunited in 2016, playing a pair of Riot Fest performances followed by a few more reunion gigs in 2017. As pointed out by Loudwire, the upcoming Newark show will be the band's first gig in their home state in 35 years. (The Misfits originally formed in Lodi, New Jersey.)
Tickets go on sale Friday, and Suicidal Tendencies and Murphy's Law are slotted to support. Just remember to leave your cell at home, since Misfits warned fans that they would actually be locking up phones when people get to the venue—although, it didn't really stop anyone at their last gig!
