The Original Misfits Will Play New York City For Halloween

The Misfits have announced a show with their original lineup on October 19.

Yesterday, the Misfits officially announced that they will be playing a New York City show at Madison Square Garden on October 19, 2019. The announcement, which came via social media, was paired with a drone shot of the iconic Misfits skull enshrouding the rooftop of Madison Square Garden.

The message read, “DEATH COMES RIPPING AT THE GARDEN when the ORIGINAL MISFITS w/ special guests RANCID & THE DAMNED, return to NYC for their hometown Halloween show—Saturday, October 19th at Madison Square Garden!…This day, anything goes… be a part of history, don’t miss it Fiends!”

Tickets to on sale to the general public on Friday, July 19 at 10 a.m EST, but there will also be a presale from July 16 at 10 a.m. through July 18 at 10 p.m. with the code MSG138.

The original lineup includes frontman Glenn Danzig alongside original bassist Jerry Only and guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein. So far, Dave Lombardo of Suicidal Tendencies and Slayer has been filling in on drums, too. According to MetalSucks, the shows are a part of a legal settlement between Glenn and Jerry over a trademark dispute. Pretty cool that the fans get to benefit from it either way!

The tour dates for the original Misfits lineup are now as follows:


17 Las Vegas, NV – Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino (Psycho Las Vegas)


07 Denver, CO – Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre (w/ The Distillers, The Damned & Cro-Mags)

11 Oakland, CA – Oracle Arena (w/ Rancid, The Damned & Cro-Mags)

14 Seattle, WA – White River Amphitheatre (w/ The Distillers, The Damned & Cro-Mags)
