Jason Silverstein of the New York Daily News reports:

Singer Glenn Danzig butted heads, literally, with a fan at a Montreal show.

According to TMZ, the singer reportedly ordered his security to assault the fan — and then beat the man personally — because he refused to stop taking pictures at a the show Sunday night (October 18th).

According to TMZ, the singer allegedly ordered his security to assault the fan — and then beat the man personally — because he refused to stop taking pictures at the show Sunday night (October 18th).

This is reportedly second time in four months that Danzig has assaulted a fan for photographing him.

The alleged victim, Neil Dalton, wrote in a now deleted Facebook post that he spent $100 and traveled to Montreal to see the show, only to get an unexpected fright when Danzig spotted him snapping photos. Danzig reportedly stopped his show to call out Dalton for violating his famous no-photo policy — then had security remove the fan and beat him, Dalton said.

Security allowed Dalton back into the show, only to drag him out once again, and this time Danzig joined in the attack, Dalton said.

The furious fan uploaded a photo that might make Danzig himself uneasy, showing his bloodied and battered face. a href=”″ target=”_blank”>Click here to see the photo.

Montreal police confirmed it filed a report and is investigating but released no further details. Danzig’s rep did not return requests from the Daily News for a comment.

In July, a fan filmed himself confronting Danzig after a show for stealing a phone from the crowd. Danzig abruptly put him in a headlock and pulled him into a bus — a beating another fan caught on camera.

On the upside, his beatings are a nice change of pace from the infamous video of a fellow rocker knocking him out cold in a backstage brawl.

The New Jersey native, whose real name is Glenn Anzalone, is now touring North America, and photos apparently aren’t his only gripe — he swears he’s ready to stop touring altogether.

“I think this is going to be it,” he told Loudwire after his Wednesday (October 21st) show in New York City.

“I’ll do some shows here or there, but I don’t think I’m going to tour anymore.”

In other Danzig news, the singer will be releasing a covers album called, Skeletons, on November 27th. Danzig will be covering songs by artists such as Black Sabbath, Aerosmith, Elvis Presley, ZZ Top, as well as others. To read all about this impending release, please go here.

    Danzig is a one hit wonder. He’s always been a real as*hole. Hey Danzig, I’d pay to fight you and I would have someone tape it on my phone and put it on you tube ya schmuck! Try me, please.

    Great way to reach out to your fans Glen! With a headlock and beatings….I guess you figure you have reached the point of your career where the people who support you don’t matter anymore. I personally wouldn’t walk across the street to see you play for free. What a s–tbag!

      He’s ready to stop touring? More like, Who the hell cares about DANZIG anymore? Who ever did? Imagine spending hard earned money to watch a buffoon beat up a guy taking pictures at a show. If the guy was distracting either have him removed or have security hold his phone or camera untill the end of the show.

    A lot of old people don’t like cell phones because they don’t understand them. All kidding aside, I hate people who hold up phones at shows, but it’s safe to say it can’t be stopped. Whether it’s at a sold out AC/DC stadium show or a club with 8 people there to see Danzig, it’s just not possible to stop it. Kicking people’s asses is not the solution either.

    If I looked like Glen Danzig I wouldn’t want my picture taken either!

    Love to see this guy get tossed in the pokey for a year or two. That should settle him down some.

    I sure hope this doesn”t hurt Glens chances of getting into the Rock and Roll HOF… imagine how disappointed both of his fans would be!
