The Misfits split from Motorhead tour, announce new dates (Glenn Danzig tours too)

After dropping Glenn Danzig from their lineup, you'd think The Misfits couldn't split from another musician of that stature. Clearly, you understimate Jerry Only's Misfits. The band has announced that they will no longer be touring with Motörhead, which means the reunited Misfits have dumped Lemmy Kilmister in adition to Danzig. Who's left for them to dump, Iggy Pop?


Ironically, Only gave the following explanation:

"The Misfits have always held an incredibly high standard of performance and quality in everything we do. Our fans expect this and deserve it. I will not compromise their expectations for any amount of money, prestige or fame..."

In any event, here are the updated tour dates for the bands. Guess which show I'm more likely to attend?

That Danzig and the new Misfits are in NYC around Halloween is no coincidence, it's an annual tradition, by whatever definition of The Misfits you choose.

read that a little too quick and thought Motorhead was coming to New York in September and October

I still can't wait to see the Misfits in NYC - love Jerry, DEZ and Robo


F*ck the Misfits. They dropped out of the Motorhead shows right before the St. Louis show we were going to see. Motorhead kicked all kinds of ass without them.

"The Misfits have always held an incredibly high standard of performance and quality in everything we do. Our fans expect this and deserve it. I will not compromise their expectations for any amount of money, prestige or fame..."

..and you couldn't meet this high standard of performance or quality by touring with Motorhead? What your fans really deserve is for you to show up and play the gigs they bought tickets for. I saw a LOT of people their sporting their Misfits threads ready to see them only to be extremely disappointed when they got to the doors.

Whatever you say, Jerry...Probably got tired of getting outclassed by the two unknown opening bands. We had all kinds of loud metal fun without you.


even though the misfits bailed outa the motorhead tour they still kick ass. Part of me is still waiting for the day that glenn and jerry get past all there crap and really start doing it for the fans and have a reunion tour.


The Misfits didn't "drop" Danzig. He quit because Jerry is a palsy.
