Their wildly successful reunion tour has been quite the ride over the past few years since horror-punk icons the Misfits decided to get the band back together and give fans what they've been dying to see for ages.
Today, July 11th, the Original Misfits — singer Glenn Danzig and bassist Jerry Only — have announced they'll be playing a special hometown show at NYC's Madison Square Garden just before Halloween on October 19th. Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein will once again be handling guitar duties, and supporting the spooky crew will be California punkers Rancid and English goth-punk rockers the Damned.
The reunion shows started as a way to commemorate the band's 40th anniversary back in 2017 and have continued on to sold-out crowds and much fanfare. Danzig told us last year, "Misfits are fucking take no prisoners. It's in your face, right to the front of the stage — smash your head against the wall until we're done and we say goodnight. That's what it needs to be. I don't want to go on tour. A show here, a show there, keep it special."
