Tonight's (October 25) DANZIG show at The Worcester Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts has been cancelled due to Glenn Danzig's shoulder injury. There is no word yet on a possible makeup date.

According to Bob Suehs of Rock N Roll Experience, Glenn fell off the stage while singing the song "How the Gods Kill" at the opening concert of the current DANZIG tour, on Tuesday (October 23) in Baltimore, Maryland. "Glenn was in a bad mood after the fall — he cut the show short and he nixed the MISFITS set with Doyle and was yelling at Todd Youth [guitar] the rest of the night telling him to slow down his playing," Suehs told BLABBERMOUTH.NET. "The story I was told from a security guard was that Glenn dislocated his shoulder, but I can't confirm that. However, he was hurt badly because he did not meet fans after the show... he ran directly to the bus and didn't come out."

Read Bob's report from Tuesday night's show — and check put photos — at Rock N Roll Experience.

DANZIG's current tour is in support of "The Lost Tracks of Danzig", the two-CD set that was released May 29, as well as Glenn's limited-edition book "Drukija, Contessa of Blood", loosely based on the legend of 17th century vampire Countess Elizabeth Bathory, and illustrated by long time collaborator Simon Bisley.

Sony Legacy will reissue the following five DANZIG albums on November 13:

"Danzig" (1988)
"Danzig II: Lucifuge" (1990)
"Danzig III: How the Gods Kill" (1992)
"Thrall - DemonSweatLive" (1993)
"Danzig IV" (1994)

The reissues are not expected to include any bonus tracks or new material.

As previously reported, DANZIG will release "The Lost Tracks of Danzig" as a limited-edition two-disc LP in a gatefold sleeve with an eight-page booklet. The exact release date has not yet been announced.

"The Lost Tracks" is comprised of 26 previously unreleased tracks that span Danzig's entire career and were originally recorded during the band's seven-album "arc" that began with 1988's "Danzig".
