Original MISFITS Jerry Only & Glenn Danzig Announce
“Only Performance” of 2017
GD quoted, “No tour, no BS, just one night of dark metal-punk hardcore brutality that will go down in the history books,”
Original MISFITS formed in 1977 out of Lodi, New Jersey, U.S.A. Even with significant lineup changes over the years, they continue in still being recognized around the rock n’ roll global circuit in the mass majority as the ingenious originators of horror-punk, as well as, a ‘true punk rock/hardcore band force’!
The original MISFITS band members GLENN DANZIG & JERRY ONLY, with long-time guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein unexpectedly reunited in 2016. They played gigs at Riot Fest Denver and Riot Fest Chicago. It was the first time back together since 1983 when Danzig left the group.
Exciting news to report for fans of the ‘horror-punk’ legends seems to be circulating that the reunion will be continuing in 2017, as the original MISFITS will be playing a ‘one show’ performance on the 30th of December at The Forum in Los Angeles, California.
Tickets for the monumental gig, billed as the Misfits’ only show of 2017, go on sale Friday at Ticketmaster. “Very special guests” will be proclaimed on the rocking bill at a later date.
“Original MISFITS” quotes on their upcoming show:
Glen Danzig (original singer/songwriter) has gone on to say this about their reuniting show in 2017:
“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,” Danzig said in a statement. “No tour, no BS, just one night of dark metal-punk hardcore brutality that will go down in the history books. See you there.”
Jerry Only (original bassist) has also commented on the upcoming MISFITS December performance:
“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…”
