There was much speculation that the reunion of Glen Danzig and Jerry Only for a pair of Misfits performances last year ended with those sets at RiotFest in Chicago and Denver. But that’s not the case, as the so-called Original Misfits have announced a Dec. 30 date in Los Angeles.
The band — featuring Danzig, Only and longtime guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein — will headline the Forum in Inglewood, the band’s “only 2017 performance in this world… or any other world.”
In the band’s announcement of the concert, Danzig says:
“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. No tour, no BS, just one night of dark metal-punk hardcore brutality that will go down in the history books. See you there.”
“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 percent authentic punk rock at its essence, and the origin of thrash in its purist form. History will be made — again. Prepare to be devastated…”
