All hell’s gonna break loose when The Original Misfits reunite for the first time in 30 years in Los Angeles on December 30 at the Forum. Following their two historic reunion shows in 2016 at Riot Fest in Denver & Chicago that drew rabid fans in droves from all over the world and shattered attendance records at the festivals, this ‘One Night Only’ event will be the ‘Only’ 2017 performance in this world… or any world for the legendary horror-punk trailblazers. The original members include singer/songwriter Glenn Danzig, bassist Jerry Only and guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein. The band will be joined by special guests Alkaline Trio & Discharge.
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.
