Misfits @ Madison Square Garden

The original Misfits will perform their Halloween show in NYC and bring along The Damned and Rancid as support. There is no excuse in missing out on this one. #WeAre138

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.

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.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m a big fan of the items that come out from Super7 and when I hit the assorted conventions I can’t seem to get to my credit card fast enough to get one or two of their latest round of awesome. It was a few weeks ago that I first announced some of their Rock and Metal coolness HERE in case you missed it. I actually saw this super cool Jerry Only figure at the recent Toy Fair but since they were still finalizing some designs with the musician I wasn’t able to photograph it 🙁 What we saw was awesome and we wanted one for sure and now along with all the rest of you I get to get on the line and shake hands with the monster man himself. I’ve been fortunate enough to meet Jerry a number of times over the years while reporting on his shows and appearances such as this and I have to tell you that he is one cool dude. Fans from the region are going to want to be a part of this signing and also get their butts over to the Psycho Las Vegas event where Misfits are one of the headlining acts. So as I close this up I wonder what you folks think about it all and if you are a toy collector in some sense what do you feel about the Super7 line of spookified trinkets? Chime in down below.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I just loved the show that took place in our region last year over at The Rock aka The Prudential Center and had a blast with my friends rocking out to their classic songs as they hit us like artillery. I missed all of the openers except for Suicidal Tendencies but that night I didn’t care at all. It was good fun from beginning to end. I think the folks that are getting to also enjoy a set by The Damned are in for a treat and if that band is for some reason new to you, check out a not too long ago Concert Review we did HERE. They are also a favorite Punk band of mine, and actually one that I listened to BEFORE ever even giving Misfits a try. Weird huh. Anyway, what do you folks think about this news and do you more localized folks in the readership think they will bring this to Madison Square Garden, Barclays Center or Nassau Coliseum?

The Original MISFITS Announce Special LA Summer Show

misfits logo

The Press Release:
Today, The Original Misfits announced a very special 2019 U.S. date that will take place Saturday, June 29th at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, CA. The Original Misfits features original singer/songwriter Glenn Danzig and original bassist Jerry Only. Rise Against, The Distillers, Anti-Nowhere League and Cro-Mags will join the epic event as special guests.

Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, April 5th at 10am local time at LiveNation.com.

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.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: All I will add to this is that if you can secure a ticket that you should do it. My friends and I caught the show at the Prudential Center some months back and it was a thrill ride into Horror Punk history. We don’t have any photos from it of course since no professionals appeared to be permitted and the venue enforced a strict lock your mobile device in a protective bag for the show so thanks for that Glenn. I still loved the experience and think that this is something that the fans will enjoy. I highly suggest you get their early enough to see all of the acts. Don’t miss out and instead get your money’s worth. What do you think about this? Chime in down below.
