The original Misfits have announced their only 2019 east coast performance will be at The World’s Most Famous Arena, Madison Square Garden, on October 19th. This announcement of their hometown Halloween show follows their historic reunion shows in 2016 as well as their New Jersey show in 2018, which sold out in minutes. This October, fans will once again have a rare opportunity to experience reunited original singer/songwriter Glenn Danzig and original bassist Jerry Only with long-time guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein and preeminent drummer Dave Lombardo on drumswith special guests Rancid and The Damned. Tickets go on sale to the public beginning Friday, July 19th at 10am through

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.

    I absolutely love the misfits ! The scary imagery, the punk and psycho – billy style music not really a hard rock or metal band in a classic sense but it’s brutal gut busting in your face rock – when you see them live – I wish I could go to this show……

      I think Danzig era Misfits are awesome. To me, they are more rock/metal than they are punk. A song like “Death Comes Ripping” sounds like it could be an early Metallica or Anthrax song.

    I love early Danzig, but have never really cared much for Misfits. The first three Danzig records are great. Hit and miss after that.

    Saw both Chicago shows and they were incredible!
