Glenn Danzig and Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein will indeed be on stage together making Misfits music on three of the East Coast tour dates. On Monday, February 28 at the Roxy Theatre in Boston, Wednesday, March 1 at the Spirit Performance Center in New York, and Thursday, March 2 at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia, Doyle will join his former Misfits bandmate Glenn Danzig for a special 30-minute set of Misfits classics. Two west coast cities witnessed a Glenn and Doyle reunion late last year, marking the first time the two had shared a stage in some 20 years.

Danzig's U.S. tour, which features Kataklysm, Trivium, and Eyes of Fire on various dates, kicked off last week, and is in support of the band's latest album, "Circle of Snakes." In addition, Danzig has completed "Black Aria II," the follow up to 1993's "Black Aria" which reached the #1 position on Billboard's Classical chart, and is in the process of writing the screenplay for a film adaptation of "Gerouge," one of the comic book titles distributed by his Verotik publishing company.

Remaining Danzig tour dates are as follows:

FEBRUARY
22 First Avenue, Minneapolis, MN
24 Guverment, Toronto, ONT CANADA
25 Agora Theatre, Cleveland, OH
26 Madison Theatre, Covington, KY
28 Roxy Theatre, Boston, MA

MARCH

2 Electric Factory, Philadelphia, PA
4 Norva Theatre, Norfolk, VA

I love the Misfits, but lets be honest Glenn was the Misfits. Everyone knows what a control freak Glenn is and that band was his band. He wrote all the melodies and I bet he played most the instruments. Jerry is just cashing in on the name which I think is wrong because he is a bass player nothing more. I would love to see Glenn do a whole tour with Erie Von and Doyle and Chuck Biscuits.

Uhm, actually, Glenn Danzig IS a multi-instrumentalist. There are alot of Misfits songs that were never even played by any members of the Misfits (because they didn't like the songs) except for Glenn. He recorded the "Who Killed Marylin?" record by himself, played bass, guitars, drums, and vocals. And Danzig also plays guitars and keyboards in some of the later Danzig albums. And Jerry Only is sucking the life out of the Misfits. Who the f*** needs Misfits shoes anyway? I hope Glenn gets royalties for all this Misfits merchandise that Jerry and the Misfits are putting out. An original Danzig line-up would be cool too, but It probably won't happen though because every one who's ever played in a band with Glenn Danzig hates him because he's such and a$$hole. Why do you think the Misfits have had like a thousand members?

So on the contrary, ALOT of Glenn's "solo" work sounded exactly like the Misfits.

SAMHAIN? Sorta kinda like the Misfits...but a much darker brooding sound. They went in deeper direction that the Misfits did. I love all of Glenn's work.

cant say any of glenns solo material impressed me either really....a critical aspect of the of what made glenn such a good fit for the misfits was missing entirely from his solo work...and anything the misfits did without glenn landed between so-so and horsesh**....playing differnt instruments and being a multi-instrumentalist are also, 2 very differnt things.....im going to end up rambling if i havent already but at the end of the day the misfits and glenn need to get over their petty little nearly 20 year old differences and bloody reunite, for the sake of their fans...
