We knew the Misfits would once again be walking among us for what we thought would be their sole 2017 reunion show later this year. However, after selling out the initial show in less than 60 seconds of the general public ticketing, the band have announced a second reunion show to bring 2017 out with a bang.
Founding members Glenn Danzig and Jerry Only will join longtime guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein as the Original Misfits this December at The Forum in Los Angeles on Dec. 30, and they have added a second date on Dec. 28 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The reunion shows follow the legendary horror-punk band's two historic reunion shows that happened last year at the Riot Fest in Chicago and Denver.
“OK, Los Angeles, you've waited almost 35 years for this; here's your chance to see the 'Original Misfits' in this exclusive L.A.-only performance.” says original Misfits singer-songwriter Danzig. “No tour, no B.S., just one night of dark, metal-punk, hardcore brutality that will go down in the history books.”
Original bassist Jerry Only adds, “The Misfits were so far ahead of their time when we began back in 1977, that it took the world 40 years to catch up. That time has come, and that time is now. We intend to take you on a ride back in time, and into the future to experience 100% authentic punk rock at its essence, and the origin of thrash in its purist form. History will be made—again.”
“Prepare to be devastated.”
