W.A.S.P. To Bravely Allow Armored Saint to Blow Them off the Stage Every Night on U.S. Anniversary Tour

  • Axl Rosenberg

W.A.S.P. have announced U.S. dates for their fortieth anniversary tour. Just as a friendly reminder, Blackie Lawless is the only original member of the band left.

In what I can only assume is a cruel joke perpetrated by a vengeful booking agent, support will come from Armored Saint, who I can 127,000,000% guarantee you will be 241,000,000,000% better than W.A.S.P. each and every night. I mean. Look at John Bush. Look at Blackie Lawless. Which one of those dudes do you think is gonna put on the superior show? You might as well ask Tommy Wiseau to perform a dramatic monologue directly after Meryl Streep has done the same.

Keep in mind that W.A.S.P. won’t play “Animal (Fuck Like a Beast)” anymore because Blackie found God. So actually, forget the Streep/Wiseau thing — this is like breaking George Foreman’s arm before pushing him into the ring with Tyson Fury.

Michael Schenker will also be on some of the dates. I’m guessing he’ll sound better than W.A.S.P., too.

Says Blackie Lawless in a statement:

“Pee cha ka wunchy culpa tong me too chonky troi. Solo fol too ma kay chalia.”
