The Original Misfits to play Tampa joined by special guests Megadeth and Fear

From the time of their first gig in 1977, the Misfits and their iconic imagery went on to become one of the most crucially influential, genre-defying bands to ever emerge from North America. The Misfits significance extends well beyond the narrowed path of punk rock, metal & hardcore. Although not cognizant of how significant they would become, what the Original Misfits achieved in their initial seven-year window deconstructed and redefined rock music.

The Misfits with Danzig's anthemic songs and unmistakable voice, Only's ferocious bass sound, and the Original Misfits melody-induced choruses and authentically bruising musicianship, cemented their importance with all ensuing generations. And now legions of diehard fans from around the world will have the opportunity to hear the Original Band that forges a level of intensity unprecedented in the new millennium. Don't miss this important chapter in the legendary band's legacy of brutality.

The tour will give fans the rare opportunity to see the horror punk pioneers in their fiendish glory, live on stage. These performances will mark the first time the reunited The Original Misfits have visited the states of Florida and Arizona, featuring the classic line-up of original singer/songwriter Glenn Danzig and original bassist Jerry Only. Longtime lead guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein will also be joining.
