The Misfits recently announced a Los Angeles show that will feature original members Glenn Danzig and Jerry Only back together with guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein. Now, Misfits have continued to keep the train going on their reunion with a newly announced tour date in Las Vegas on Dec. 28. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday Sept. 29 at 10AM PT. The group will be joined by Alkaline Trio and FEAR as openers.
Musicians of all stripes have been reacting to the incredible reunion brought on by Danzig and Jerry Only playing Misfits songs again. Chiefly among them is drummer Dave Lombardo. As the current drummer for Misfits’ touring act, he’s had his opinions on whether or not the band should record together again.
“Honestly… I’m gonna be brutally honest here. I would suggest for them to tour as much as they can off those original records, because there’s some serious magic in those melodies and that songwriting,” said Lombardo. “I don’t know if… With the growth of each musician in that band, their method of songwriting has evolved. So I don’t know if that… Unless they maybe bring in a producer that hones them and dials them into… says, ‘No, the song is too long now. We’re over two minutes. The song’s too long. That can’t be.’ Maybe it can work. But I honestly… Hey, the Misfits are the Misfits. They can do what they want. I’m a hired gun and I’ll just stay back. And if they want to record, I’m there.”
Back in May, Glenn Danzig kept the door open for more shows in an interview. “It is what it is,” said Danzig. “But everyone seemed to have a great time. I think it exceeded expectations, which is always good, and the write-ups were just insane.”
He went on to state, “We’ll see. I’m open to possibly doing some more shows. I don’t want to tour, but if it happens and everything lines up properly, I would imagine there’d probably be a couple more shows. I don’t know when, but I’ll keep an open mind.”
Look out for tickets Friday (Sept. 29) at 10:00 AM PST at AXS.
