Glenn Danzig to Reunite with Misifts and Samhain Members at Red Bull Riot Fest

Horror-punk-pioneer Glenn Danzig is set to reunite with estranged members of former bands the Misfits and Samhain at the Red Bull Riot Fest on October 7. Danzig, who originally disbanded  the Misfits in 1983, will play a set of the cult favorites’ songs with former guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein. In addition, Danzig will also be on stage to perform Samhain tracks with the band’s original members as well as a set of his solo band’s, Danzig, material. This trifecta of performances is being dubbed “Danzig Legacy.”

The Red Bull Riot Fest takes place over five days at the Congress Theater in Chicago. Other headliners scheduled to appear include Weezer, Social Distortion, the Descendents, and a D Generation reunion.

    He’s been touring with Doyle for the last few years. How is that reuniting? not to mention he did a Samhain reunion a few years ago. If he plays with Jerry again, then it would be newsworthy.

    That is awesome.  I don’t care if it’s not an actual reunion.
