In an interview at the premiere of Rob Zombie’s 3 From Hell movie the other night, Glenn Danzig was quoted as saying nest month’s show at Madison Square Garden, on October 19, will be the last. The initial comeback performance by MISFITS members Danzig, Jerry Only and Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein took place at the 2016 Riot Fest. The estranged bandmates played together for the first time since 1983 and were backed by former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo and guitarist Acey Slade.
This past June, Danzig told Full Metal Jackie that “there’s not gonna be many more” MISFITS shows, explaining that he and his bandmates wanted to “make each event special.” He said: “We just kind of got back together and just decided we’d do it here or there, and just not make it a grind kind of tour. So people should see it while they can, because I know next year I go out with DANZIG again for Europe and may do some dates here in the States.”
Legal papers recently uncovered by MetalSucks have suggested that Danzig only reunited with the MISFITS to end his decades-long legal battle over the band’s trademark and profits.
Prior to the Riot Fest concerts, Glenn, Jerry and Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein last performed together on October 29, 1983.
