Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider: “I Don’t Think I’ll Do Any More Shows”

It looks like Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) currently has no plans to return to the live stage in the future. The singer says he is shifting his focus to “writing, directing and producing.”

Snider said the following while responding to a fan on Twitter:

“Charlie, I am Dee Downer tonight. No, I don’t tour anymore. I don’t even think I’ll do any more shows. I’m focusing on writing, directing and producing. Sorry man.”

He also added the following about a possible Twisted Sister reunion:

“I wouldn’t hold your breath. @TwistedSisterNY promised ourselves we wouldn’t be like every other band, doing a farewell, then coming back. We always considered that a bullshit, pussy move…. Yeah, you know who I’m talking about (every artist who pulled that shit).”

He then shared his thoughts on bands returning after doing farewell tours:

“To further expound…I don’t think any band should retire unless they want to. Stay forever; your fans don’t want you to go. But don’t say farewell, sell us the higher priced ticket, the goodbye program, and the “No More Tours” t-shirt…then come back a couple of years later!”

Dee Snider Premieres “Stand” Video

Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) has premiered a new video for his song “Stand.” The clip features footage from the Reelz documentary “America’s Deadliest Concert: The Guest List,” which focuses on the tragic Great White concert fire. The track appears on Snider’s latest album “Leave A Scar.“ The frontman commented:

“While I didn’t write ‘Stand’ for the Station nightclub fire documentary ‘America’s Deadliest Rock Concert: The Guest List’, it is a perfect fit. The full tragedy of that horrific night was the despicable lack of support shown for a community in desperate need. ‘Stand’ speaks to the importance for us all to recognize these moments of desperation and do something about them. ‘Don’t leave your mark… leave a scar!'”
