Glenn Danzig to Perform with Samhain Members & Doyle Von Frankenstein of the Misfits at Riot Fest 2011

June 27, 2011
imgSince 2005, Riot Fest has presented some of the best bands from every genre under the umbrella of rock punk and metal, with epic reunions being a hallmark of the festival. After announcing headliners Weezer, Descendents, Social Distortion and X on June 20 for the Chicago edition, Riot Fest is beyond excited to announce its final headliner. On Friday, October 7, a very special Danzig “Legacy” performance with Glenn Danzig reuniting for Performances with Samhain Members, an onstage Reunion with Doyle from The Misfits as well as a blistering Danzig set will take place at Congress Theater during Riot Fest 2011 (Chicago).
 
“Everyone in music has a band or a musician that changed them. For me, it is Glenn Danzig. I am in music because of Danzig, Samhain and The Misfits. I remember being a 10-year-old when my friend handed me Danzig, and it blew me away. It was different…it was the first album for me, now looking back, where form matched content. Soon after, I found this entire wealth of music he wrote before 1988 and I became an even bigger fan. Musically, it opened my world to punk, metal and hardcore,” said Michael Petryshyn, founder of Riot Fest. “To have Glenn perform his solo works, to go on stage with Samhain for a set and, lastly, to play Misfits songs with Doyle will always be the one show I remember.”
