Tonight’s (Tuesday, June 5) DANZIG concert at Stage AE in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has been canceled — reportedly because the band’s frontman/namesake Glenn Danzig was taken ill.
According to Bob Suehs of Rock N Roll Experience, Glenn told the crowd at last night’s (Monday, June 4) DANZIG show at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, Maryland that he was not feeling well. Despite this, DANZIG played a full set, which included no less than two encores.
Glenn Danzig is performing his “Legacy” career-spanning set featuring songs from DANZIG, SAMHAIN and MISFITS, in a number of U.S. cities. In addition, he is playing four DANZIG shows where is joined by ex-MISFITS axeman Doyle Von Frankenstein as a “special guest.”
A “Danzig Legacy” TV special was filmed on May 29 in Glendale, California with director Mark Brooks (Adult Swim’s “Metalocalypse”).
Glenn Danzig is streaming the track “Devil’s Angels” on his official web site. It was originaly the theme song for the late ’60’s biker film of the same title.
DANZIG is putting the finishing touches on the as-yet-untitled covers record for a late summer/early fall release.
