Misfits Announce December Reunion Show
Glenn Danzig made it pretty clear that the Misfits’ 2016 reunion show at Chicago’s Riot Fest was a one-off deal. But I guess someone offered him enough French onion soup to make stomaching Jerry Only more palatable, ’cause the band has announced another reunion show, this one to take place at The Forum in L.A. on December 30. I know it’s tempting to throw shade at Danzig for not sticking to his word, but cut the dude some slack. Have you seen the inside of his house? He’s been hoarding a box of Frankenberry for thirty years. Danzig may deny the usefulness of chemotherapy for cancer patients, but even he can’t deny the growling in his tummy.
ANYHOO, the band is claiming that this will be their only reunion show in 2017, which is probably true. I have a hard time imagining that the day won’t come when someone will finally offer the band a big enough pile of moolah that they’ll do a full tour, but if you’re a Misfits mega-fan and need a 100% guarantee that you’re gonna get to see them again before you die, then get thee to this link, where tickets go on sale Friday.
As a bonus, Dave Lombardo will, once again, be playing drums. Goody!
