(NEWARK, NJ) -- The Original Misfits, one of the most influential, genre-defying bands to emerge from North America, have announced a limited three-show run of dates for 2023. Produced by Live Nation, the tour kicks off on June 24 in Tampa, FL, and includes a hometown show at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, with fellow New Jersey natives The Gaslight Anthem, and Fear, on Saturday, July 8, 2023.
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.
The tour will give fans the rare opportunity to see the horror punk pioneers in their fiendish glory, live on stage. These performances will mark the first time the reunited The Original Misfits have visited the states of Florida and Arizona, featuring the classic line-up of original singer/songwriter Glenn Danzig and original bassist Jerry Only. Longtime lead guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein will also be joining.
Tickets will be available starting with presales beginning on Wednesday, March 22 with additional presales throughout the week ahead of the general onsale beginning on Friday, March 24 at 10:00am at LiveNation.com.
