Misfits Officially Announce Los Angeles, CA Reunion Show

Glenn Danzig, Jerry Only, and Doyle have officially announced a one-off Misfits reunion show in Los Angeles, CA. The event will be held at The Forum on December 30.

The band posted the following:



Original Members – GLENN DANZIG and JERRY ONLY
With long-time guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein


With Special Guests To Be Announced!

This December, on 12/30, Original Singer/Songwriter Glenn Danzig & Original Bassist Jerry Only joined by Guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein – for the First Time in Over 30 Years – will return to Los Angeles to reunite as The Original Misfits. Following their two historic reunion shows in 2016 at Riot Fest in Denver & Chicago that drew rabid fans in droves from all over the world and shattered attendance records at the festivals, this ‘One Night Only’ event will be the ‘Only’ 2017 performance in this world… or any world for the legendary horror-punk trailblazers. The band will be joined by special guests to be announced soon.

“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.” said Glenn Danzig. “No Tour, No BS, just one night of dark metal-punk hardcore brutality that will go down in the history books. See you there.”

Tickets for the reunion that never seemed possible, go on sale to the general public starting Friday, August 25th at 12:30pm local time at: http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/09005310FF327BA0

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…”

From the time of their first gig in 1977, the MISFITS and their iconic imagery went on to become one of the most crucially influential, genre-defying bands to ever emerge from North America. The MISFITS significance extends well beyond the narrowed path of punk rock, metal & hardcore. Although not cognizant of how significant they would become, what the Original MISFITS achieved in their initial seven-year window deconstructed and redefined rock music.

The MISFITS with Danzig’s anthemic songs and unmistakable voice, Only’s ferocious bass sound, and the Original MISFITS melody-induced choruses and authentically bruising musicianship, cemented their importance with all ensuing generations. And now legions of diehard fans from around the world will have the opportunity to hear the Original Band that forges a level of intensity unprecedented in the new millennium. Don’t miss this important chapter in the legendary band’s legacy of brutality.

Glenn Danzig On Misfits Reunion: “I’m Open To Possibly Doing Some More Shows”

Glenn Danzig reunited with Jerry Only and Doyle last year for Misfits’ Riot Fest performances, and it seems that he is open to playing some more shows with group. He told Rolling Stone the following:

“I’m open to possibly doing some more shows. I don’t want to tour, but if it happens and everything lines up properly, I would imagine there’d probably be a couple more shows. I don’t know when, but I’ll keep an open mind.”


Danzig On Possibility Of Making A New Misfits Album: “I Don’t Know”

Glenn Danzig, recently reunited with Jerry Only and Doyle, for Misfits’ Riot Fest performances, but it doesn’t seem like he is interested in recording new material with the group. He told The New York Times the following:

“If there’s going to be another Misfits record, I’d probably have to write the stuff. And I’ve got a full plate, so I don’t know.”


Jerry Only Says Misfits Hope Their Reunion Will Continue

Jerry Only and Doyle recently spoke with Rolling Stone to discuss reuniting with Glenn Danzig for their Misfits reunion shows. So far, the three classic members, along with guest drummer Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer), and guest guitarist Acey Slade (ex-Dope/Murderdolls), have performed one show at the 2016 Denver Riot Fest, but they hope to keep things going beyond their Riot Fest performances.


Jerry Only said the following:

“I want it to continue. I know Doyle wants it to continue. I know Glenn wants it to continue. We just have to be big enough people to make it continue. And that’s where we’re at. Whatever it takes. We’re going into our 40th anniversary so the timing couldn’t be more perfect. Eventually, Doyle‘s got to write a new album; I’ve got to write a new album; Glenn‘s got to write a new album.

Why don’t we work together and make the greatest album ever? Now we’ve got different elements. We’ve got Doyle playing more of a metal kind of thing. We’ve got Dave who we’re trying to figure out what the fuck he’s doing. And Glenn‘s got his own thing. And Acey [Slade, second guitar] fills in good too. And I’ve got the band where it is today. So it’s a matter of remolding and using all the different elements that I’ve got.”

He also added the following, when asked if Danzig was approached about writing a new album:

“I think it’s got to evolve naturally. The thing is we’ve tried to plan things and then we stand there and wait and as it comes we’ll just do it. When we go back – I don’t know about Glenn – but I canceled our touring and everything for this so I’m going to go home and write and lift.”

The band’s next show is set for September 18 at the Chicago Riot Fest.
