Fan-filmed video footage of DANZIG performing the song "How the Gods Kill" at the opening concert of the band's current tour, on October 23, 2007 in Baltimore, Maryland, can be viewed below (courtesy of "jodaro55"). The group's frontman Glenn Danzig can be seen in the clip falling off the stage around the four-minute, nine-second mark (-1:10) before making his way back and finishing the song.

According to Rock N Roll Experience's Bob Suehs, who attended the Baltimore concert, Glenn "was in a bad mood after the fall — he cut the show short and he nixed the [scheduled] MISFITS set with Doyle [Von Frankenstein, ex-MISFITS] and was yelling at Todd Youth [guitar] the rest of the night telling him to slow down his playing. 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."

DANZIG cancelled its scheduled October 25 concert at The Worcester Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts due to Glenn's shoulder injury.

Glenn has been sporting an arm sling at most of the subsequent shows on the current tour and reportedly stated at the October 24 concert in Philadelphia that he was glad the MISFITS songs were short while performing the joint set with Doyle. It was also reported that Danzig looked in pain at various points during the Philadelphia concert.

DANZIG's current trek 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.

"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".

You can see what people are made out of when things like this happen - Glenn set himself apart from the crybaby bands that are out there by getting back up on stage, continuing his tour, and not suing anyone.

If you have any doubt about Glenn's ability on the stage, a better video can be found on youtube of the misfits performing Nike A Go Go in Los Angeles in 1982. Glenn had no problem delivering a stunning performance while keeping the crowd off of him that was moshing on the stage. The link is below and none of you or the members of your favorite bands have delivered a performance as good:
