The Misfits To Play Madison Square Garden This October

The buzz started a few hours ago when some cryptic but still rather telling Instagram and Facebook posts began making the rounds. It was pretty obvious what was going to be the case because a visual of the famous Misfits fiend on the marquee of NYC’s own Madison Square Garden had to mean that they were planning a visit and as it turns out……they were. Read on.

The Propaganda:

*** end of propaganda ***

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Hey Fiends, what can I possibly add to this that you all aren’t already thinking? I mean it’s pretty damned awesome and exciting news that the Misfits will be performing at the worlds most famous arena and bringing along both Rancid and The Damned as support. My hope is that EVERYONE gets there early enough to see The Damned especially because they have been a favorite Punk band of mine for many years. Rancid I like a handful of tracks from but I cannot say that I’ve ever really followed them and their career before. I’m excited to finally get the chance to check them out. Now, having caught the Misfits show at The Prudential Center last year I can only state that it’s going to be a great time for anyone in attendance at MSG. Of course, we might have to lock our mobile devices in the little foam baggies for this show like that NJ gig at The Rock but I anticipate them all getting destroyed midway through the second or third song for sure. Good luck to security in advance who have to police the folks with their mobiles in hand that night. You will have your work cut out for you. Closing up I am wondering what you readers think about this news. Will you be on point to support Glenn, Jerry, Doyle, Dave and Acey? Chime in down below in the comments section.

Fortunately, the fine folks at the Prop Store have gotten their hands on numerous items and will be auctioning them off in the coming weeks. Take a look down below to the full press release.
