Glenn Danzig to Front The Misfits at Riot Fest for First Time in Over 30 Years
The Misfits are set to reunite at Riot Fest this year and will do so with frontman Glenn Danzig, bassist Jerry Only and guitarist Doyle. The trio last performed together on October 29, 1983. A drummer for the performances has not been announced yet. Arthur Googy played drums with the trio on 1982’s Walk Among Us.
The reunion will first occur at the Denver edition of Riot Fest on September 2 and 4. The Misfits will also appear at Riot Fest Chicago slated for September 16-18. The rest of the lineup is forthcoming.
The band’s initial breakup in 1983 began a chain of various legal battles between Danzig and the other members, with Only gaining the rights to record and tour under The Misfits name in the 90s. Danzig has been active as well, touring under his own name, with his last LP Skeletons coming in 2015.
