The Original Misfits Announce Oakland, CA Concert, Glenn Danzig Says The Band Are “Not Gonna Do Many More” Reunion Shows

The Original Misfits have announced an Oakland, CA show with Rancid, The Damned, and Cro-Mags. The concert will be held at Oracle Arena on September 11. The Misfits’ previous reunion shows have seen Glenn Danzig and Jerry Only performing with Doyle, Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer, etc.) and Acey Slade (ex-Murderdolls, etc.).

In other news, Danzig recently told Full Metal Jackie that the Misfits are not planning to do too many more reunion shows [via Loudwire]:

“Well, I don’t tour anymore anyway. Maybe I’ll put together like a week or two shows here on the West Coast, or maybe on the East Coast and that’s it. With the Misfits thing, we just kinda got back together and just decided we’d do it here or there, and just not make it a grind kinda tour. We just want to make each event special. We’re not gonna do many more. I know we just announced Seattle and Denver, but I’m pretty sure there’s not gonna be many more of them.

So people should see it while they can because, I know, next year I go out with Danzig again for Europe and may do some dates here in the States. I gotta do a Danzig Sings Elvis thing – select shows maybe around the country. Those will be more special. There’s no seating. It’s all tables. It’s gonna be a very cool kind of old school vibe. This year I’ve got some time off in between working on the movie, so we decided to do a couple extra shows. Then, that’ll be it I think for a while.”

This news isn’t too surprising considering legal documents recently surfaced and seemed to suggest that the band had a contractual obligation to play 10 shows following a settlement between Danzig and Only. Notably, the Oakland show is their 10th show to be announced. Here’s the group’s remaining dates:

06/29 Los Angeles, CA – Banc Of California Stadium (feat. Rise Against, The Distillers, Anti-Nowhere League, and Cro-Mags)
09/07 Denver, CO – Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre (feat. The Distillers, The Damned, and Cro-Mags)
09/11 Oakland, CA – Oracle Arena (feat. Rancid, The Damned, and Cro-Mags)
09/14 Seattle, WA – White River Amphitheatre (feat. The Distillers, The Damned, and Cro-Mags)
