Misfits are the epitome of Halloween — so much so, they wrote a song about it — so it's only fitting for the horror punks to plan a around the spookiest of holidays. The band has been playing reunion shows since 2017, and their Halloween gig marks the latest to include the original lineup of frontman Glenn Danzig and bassist Jerry Only with guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein. The band announced the special hometown show on social media.
"DEATH COMES RIPPING AT THE GARDEN when the ORIGINAL MISFITS w/ special guests RANCID & THE DAMNED return to NYC for their hometown Halloween show—Saturday, October 19th at Madison Square Garden!" Misfits captioned a photo of their signature skull logo engulfing the roof of MSG. "This day, anything goes... be a part of history, don't miss it Fiends!"
Tickets will be available for presale July 16-18 with the code "MSG138," and tickets go on sale to the public on July 19. Get more ticket info here.
