Glenn Danzig's performance at the Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas was cut short last night (Friday, November 4) after an hour because the festival promoters were required to enforce the city's curfew.

According to a post from the event organizers on the official Fun Fun Fun Fest Facebook page, Danzig was scheduled to take the stage at 8:15 p.m. but made the crowd wait after initially insisting that he wasn't going to play because he said it was too cold and he had a cough. The promoters allege that Glenn demanded vitamins, French onion soup and a Wendy's chicken sandwich and insisted on having stage heaters and an on-site doctor.

Danzig finally appeared onstage at 8:55, nearly 45 minutes past his scheduled stage call. At 10 p.m, when Auditorium Shores venue rules stated that music must be shut off, Danzig blamed the Fun Fun Fun Fest organizers, telling the crowd, "I guess they've [the organizers] never heard of a thing called a riot before."

By the time Danzig's performance was forced to come to an early end, he had only gotten through two MISFITS songs as part of his "Danzig Legacy" set featuring material from the singer's former bands SAMHAIN and the MISFITS as well as selections from his solo work disappointing many of the fans, who took to Facebook and Twitter to slam the singer for his allegedly unprofessional behavior.

"Fun Fun Fun Fest
Hi. I book the fest. Those that are hating could NOT be more wrong. Yes, someone has your money and ripped you off. His name is Glenn. Stop by his house in LA with some kitty litter in trade for your refund, but we still had to pay him and ...he didn't deserve it after what he pulled. Here is how it went down...check the timeline:
-glenn flies in this morning and says he has a cold and doesn't want feel like playing the show. he demands french onion soup and vitamins brought to his hotel suite. he wants to soup now and wants it hot. we get it.

-glenn says it's freezing in austin and he can't go on. says it's going to be 28 degrees tonight and he won't perform (keep in mind, it's currently 71 and sunny with a night forecast of maybe 50+). he says we have to move the show/festival inside if we want him to play (obviously, that's not possible).

-we rent stage heaters (no other bands, public enemy, mcd, passion pit, etc need or want heaters on stage...it's warm up there and not cold out) for glenn per demand, as well as bring in an onsite doctor to make him happy and be there if his cold doesn't go away.

-agents and managers assure us he's going to play now.
-glenn's band/crew arrive before him in the afternoon and load gear. they said it all works, they get up the danzig banner, check lights, are happy.

-glenn arrives at 7:45 (half hour before showtime, they go on at 8:15 exactly and have a 90 min set...park curfew by the city/police is 10pm sharp)...when he arrives, he says he's not going to play. says he doesn't like how the banners are hung on stage and doesn't like the lighting or stage size (all this was advanced in email and phone well in advance and the band/crew loaded in mid day and were happy with it and said it would work...stage wasn't small at all). he wouldn't leave his trailer to go look at the stage, though, so the lighting company drew up specs for him to look at of the stage lighting 50 feet from his trailer and brought it to him to look over and prove him wrong.

-in the meantime, glenn's bodyguard gets pushy (literally) with murder city devils manager and tells them they can't have their friends watch MCD from stage and wants them to cut their set. kicks them off stage and gets physical with the band and stafff....oh, also danzig says he's just as big as slayer and slayer is playing a bigger stage on sunday and that's bullshit and wants to play the same stage slayer is playing...or won't play. makes him look bad.

-it's now 8:15 and time for them to go on. the band is ready, corpse make ups done, guitars tunes. glenn says he's not playing and that it's too cold outside. he said big stages should have windscreen so wind can't blow on him from the side. the stage managers then goes and gets tarps and tarp the entire side of the stage so now wind will hit him.

-it's now 8:40. we explain that it's cutting into the set and he's going to have cut the 90 min set if he doesn't play soon, as park curfew is 10. he says he doesn't feel like playing. says "i got a deathbug. if i go on stage and get sick, i'll die. i'm not getting sicker for this show" (NOTE: he totally looks and seems fine...no coughing, no paleness, no vomiting, just some balding and a gut, from what i can tell). we get the Dr and he says he can do a b12 shot or anything he needs if he feels bad...danzig says he only treats illnesses naturally, so won't do that. we finally get him to agree to play and have already informed his crew that it's only 60 mins (9pm at this point) and they start cutting some songs from the set list, so they can still do misfits, but obviously didn't cut enough.

-they went on almost and hour late due to the HANDS DOWN biggest rock star moment we've ever dealt with and then he tries to start a riot and blames the fest, the city, the cops and everyone, but himself. goes backstage and tries to fight a few ppl and get in the van and leaves.

the end....
we're bummed to. we wanted to hear Skulls.

Wow, but still suprising since I saw him play an afternoon slot on a parking lot stage where bands like Staind and Alter Bridge played inside a stadium


I feel like this is gonna keep going on though

Yep, for those who didn't know, Glenn Danzig is basically the biggest five-foot douchebag in the history of metal.

He stole Andrew's camera and hit him. Derp.

I'm pretty sure that he meant "I don't remember Andrew posting about this." Derp.

And I looked at both of the Danzig topics Andrew posted and I didn't see him mention his camera being stolen or being punched.

All styles of music are represented all days. Today just happens to be Eyehategod, Cannibal Corpse and Slayer. And yes... Slayer is on the largest stage at the festival rather than on the 'metal/punk' stage.

Tonight on the 'hip-hop/electronic' stage it's Del tha Funkee Homosapien, Flying Lotus, Diplo and OFWGKTA.

Yep, today is the only day of the weekend I'm doing this year. Eyehategod plays at 4:30 and it's 12:30 here now, so I should probably start drinking soon. :D

Also Henry Rollins, Boris and Trash Talk tonight... so many schedule conflicts to decide between.

I'm very jealous. I was gonna go but things didn't work out for me and my work schedule. Have a great time man and please be sure to post Slayers set. Kerry said in an interview awhile back that they're trying to get Jeff back in time for FUN FUN FUN Fest. Said they been practicing with him for the last couple of weeks. :rocker:

HAVE FUN AND LEAVE A REVIEW FOR THE BROTHERS :fist:
