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?
