Here’s Fan Footage of the Misfits Reunion from Riot Fest Denver
Having just moved back to New York from Denver, I sadly had to miss the original Misfits line-up reuniting at this year’s Riot Fest Denver (sorry, original line-up with Dave friggin’ Lombardo in tow). While I’m frustrated, I’m not too broken up about it, partly because (as plenty of our commenters noted) there’ll probably be a tour with this line-up in the near future, and partly because everyone else in the world was there, and they took video.
Here’s some fan-shot footage below, provided by Metal Insider. As you can see, Riot Fest did the stage up right, complete with giant jack o’ lanterns and Crimson Ghost-faced amps. Even more importantly, you’ll notice that the band does have a fight or meltdown onstage, and Danzig is happy to scream the classics next to Jerry Only, a man who only a couple of years ago he engaged in a bitter battle over merch rights. Hopefully, this means we’ll get plenty of live Original Misfits shows soon (though maybe, hopefully, no new Original Misfits material).
Watch the footage below, and keep scrolling for the set list, which contains pretty much every single one of your favorite Misfits songs (well, except for “Violent World”).
