Group To Play First Shows With Classic Line-up Since 1983.
Glenn Danzig, Jerry Only and Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein plan to reunite under the moniker The Original Misfits for two festival shows this year. While this name is not exactly accurate, it is certainly the most celebrated line-up that created the Walk Among Us and Earth A.D./Wolf’s Blood albums in 1982 and 1982 respectively. The band had originally broken up in 1983, but Only and Doyle reunited in 1995 without Danzig who had at that stage embarked on quite a successful solo career.
This will be the first time that the classic Misfits line-up will have played together since 1983. They will take the stage together for Riot Fest Denver will be held on Sept. 2-4 and Riot Fest Chicago will take place Sept. 16-18.
