So, Danzig just posted this on FB:

Danzig "Legacy" is playing the BONNAROO MUSIC FESTIVAL on Sat., June 9th. Get your tickets here: http://www.bonnaroo.com/tickets/

DANZIG fans may want to keep Memorial Day Weekend open as we'll be making a Special announcement here & on the Official DANZIG-VEROTIK website very soon. You WILL NOT want to miss it!!!

The Bonnaroo set is weird, but whatever. More interested in the Memorial Day thing so I did a quick search and found this:

Danzig
Irvine Meadows/Verizon Wireless Amphitheater
Irvine, California

Place has a capacity of 16,000 is way too big for a regular Danzig show; even the "Legacy" show in LA last year was at the Gibson Amphitheater (6,000+).

Maybe a mini fest?

TM now describing the show as "Danzig Legacy: Performing music from Danzig, Samhain & The Misfits"

It's gotta be more than that though (i.e., a lot of bands) to justify the price tag (highest price $69.50 + fees) and huge capacity.

Also, lulz at the (presumably) lawn tickets being $13.13 before fees.

I'm completely fine with just a Legacy show. I hope he changes up what Samhain/Misfits songs he does but I'm sure he won't. I can't wait!!

Really tempted to come out for this. Only time I saw the "Legacy" show was at Fun Fun Fun Fest and you guys know how that turned out. I don't think I can be satisfied seeing Danzig only sing two Misfits songs in my life.

I'm really glad I didn't go that day, or I would have been pissed. :mad:

Other than Danzig being a little bitch and not going on when he was supposed to, how was the show?

Performance itself was great. Everybody got super excited when Doyle came out and they started ripping into the Misfits songs. Just wish it would have had a different (longer) ending. :/

This is on Groupon for $20! Loge seating, though.

Last time I saw Danzig @ Irvine Meadows was the legendary Halloween night show in 1994. It'll be cool to see him there again.

Wishful thinking is that Prong will open since their current tour skipped major cities

supposedly both London May and Doyle will do the Legacy shows

Bonnaroo is Danzig Legacy AND features Doyle, according to their lineup: http://lineup.bonnaroo.com/

They're #17 on the bill

my guess is Doyle will be at every show, but only certain shows will be the Legacy set

I wonder who the openers for Irvine are...

Edit: openers are Kyng, Monstro and Witchaven...

Witchaven? Nice! This is probably the most mainstream audience they'll ever play to haha. I wish I could go this weekend, but having no transportation from LA is preventing me from going.

I doubt the lawn sold out, it was probably never available. As was said earlier, the venue at full capacity is too big for this show, so they only are doing reserved seating, it looks like. Makes sense to me.

I heard livenation just released lawn seats and every remaining seat is $13!

How is this even happening still? A quick look over at TM shows there are literally thousands of seats still open; hundreds of which are in Orch.

haha calm down. If you click on the seat finder, it shows around 80 seats left in orchestra. Almost none of the terrace/lodge seats sold, so they lowered the price.

KillerCannabis
05-22-2012, 12:02 PM
Weird. When I checked earlier, it said there were at least over 250 seats in each Orch section. That, or I still have no clue how to use that damn feature on TM. Haha.

Translation: "people are going to be disappointed".

I wish bands would learn from other bands who say crap like that. I'm not sure if I've ever seen a statement like that, that was true. And it just makes everyone upset.

Every now and again a band does something radically different and it's awesome. But that's super-rare.

Actually, the first track released off the covers album, Devil's Angels, sounds like old-school Misfits, so I'd say that will shock most people.

Shortly after the public release of Danzig's 2010 studio effort, "Deth Red Sabaoth," frontman Glenn Danzig announced plans to record alternate renditions of songs dating back to 1970's "Garage, Metal, and Punk Rock," in what would come to be his currently untitled cover album. The first track to be unofficially released, "Devil's Angels" stands as a cover of the theme song featured in the 1967 Exploitation Film by the same name, something Danzig has apparently wished to do since the Misfits Era in 1979. He has stated that it has the exact same musical arrangement as when he originally wished to perform it during that time period, giving it a modern Misfits-type completed product, something us fans have wished for over the course of years, but never quite thought we would see. A full track listing is destined to be released within the coming weeks, as of now, all that is known is that the album will feature cover songs by such bands and artists as Black Sabbath, and of course, Elvis Presley.

And I was totally looking forward to going nuts when Danzig played the Samhain songs and watching an entire crowd go out of their minds when Doyle ran out. :(

Danzig's cover album will include tracks from Elvis and Black Sabbath, as stated in interviews. I found out a short while ago that it will include a ZZ Top cover and he is wanting to have a cover of a Hank Williams Sr. song with Hank 3 singing a duet with him, not sure if the Hank stuff will happen.

HOLY SHIT!! Will my dream finally come true? I hope its the Angel Of Death! Watch this. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnDpmwO39f4) Danzig and III recorded a set of demos before the 6/6/6 show that is titled the Silverlake Demos, but no one has them :( I would love them more than anything...

here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pEeGKRQRgA&feature=related) is footage of them recording the Silverlake Demos
