You know we love announcing tours and special one off gigs and that makes this recent alert from the legendary Misfits something exciting. Check out the poster where the band revealed two additional shows for their spectacular reunion performances. Watch out Colorado and Seattle, the 138 are coming for ya!!!!
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I just loved the show that took place in our region last year over at The Rock aka The Prudential Center and had a blast with my friends rocking out to their classic songs as they hit us like artillery. I missed all of the openers except for Suicidal Tendencies but that night I didn’t care at all. It was good fun from beginning to end. I think the folks that are getting to also enjoy a set by The Damned are in for a treat and if that band is for some reason new to you, check out a not too long ago Concert Review we did HERE. They are also a favorite Punk band of mine, and actually one that I listened to BEFORE ever even giving Misfits a try. Weird huh. Anyway, what do you folks think about this news and do you more localized folks in the readership think they will bring this to Madison Square Garden, Barclays Center or Nassau Coliseum? Chime in down below.
The Press Release:
Today, The Original Misfits announced a very special 2019 U.S. date that will take place Saturday, June 29th at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, CA. The Original Misfits features original singer/songwriter Glenn Danzig and original bassist Jerry Only. Rise Against, The Distillers, Anti-Nowhere League and Cro-Mags will join the epic event as special guests.
Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, April 5th at 10am local time at LiveNation.com.
From the time of their first gig in 1977, the MISFITS and their iconic imagery went on to become one of the most crucially influential, genre-defying bands to ever emerge from North America. The MISFITS significance extends well beyond the narrowed path of punk rock, metal & hardcore. Although not cognizant of how significant they would become, what the Original MISFITS achieved in their initial seven-year window deconstructed and redefined rock music.
The MISFITS with Danzig’s anthemic songs and unmistakable voice, Only’s ferocious bass sound, and the Original MISFITS melody-induced choruses and authentically bruising musicianship, cemented their importance with all ensuing generations. And now legions of diehard fans from around the world will have the opportunity to hear the Original Band that forges a level of intensity unprecedented in the new millennium. Don’t miss this important chapter in the legendary band’s legacy of brutality.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: All I will add to this is that if you can secure a ticket that you should do it. My friends and I caught the show at the Prudential Center some months back and it was a thrill ride into Horror Punk history. We don’t have any photos from it of course since no professionals appeared to be permitted and the venue enforced a strict lock your mobile device in a protective bag for the show so thanks for that Glenn. I still loved the experience and think that this is something that the fans will enjoy. I highly suggest you get their early enough to see all of the acts. Don’t miss out and instead get your money’s worth. What do you think about this? Chime in down below.
