The classic-era lineup of the horror punk outfit Misfits — Glenn Danzig, Jerry Only and Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein — will play its first show in New Jersey in 35 years on Saturday, May 19 at the Prudential Center in Newark. Support at the show will come from Suicidal Tendencies and Murphy’s Law. Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 2 at 10 a.m. EST via Ticketmaster.
Misfits played two historic reunion concerts in 2016 at Riot Fest in Denver and Chicago that drew rabid fans in droves from all over the world and shattered attendance records at the festivals. More recently, Misfits played two reunion shows at the end of December in Los Angeles and in Las Vegas.
Jerry Only: “The Misfits were so far ahead of their time when we began back in 1977, that it took the world forty years to catch up. That time has come, and that time is NOW… We intend to take you on a ride back in time, and into the future to experience 100% authentic punk rock at its essence, and the origin of thrash in its purist form. History will be made — again. Prepare to be devastated…”
