    Only makes sense. This will sell out in seconds.

    Wish they'd tour with this lineup and Suicidal opening.

    this is going to be expensive

    I think the price and size will stop it from being an instant sellout.

    Las Vegas was the same size and price and sold out instantly.

    According to THEPRP.com it was "Attendance/Capacity: 8,465 / 10,792." Is that wrong?

    i just thought it would be more special and be more meanigful to have them in a somewhat more intimate venue. When i think of legendary punk band, i dont think of the Prudential Center.

    Idk, it could be wrong or it could be right. I just know Doyle hey promoting it on his Instagram as a sold out show. Unless I’m confusing it with the LA show. Both of which supposedly sold out

    They heavily marketed that as the ONLY show for the foreseeable future, and once LA was announced I don’t think that even sold out day of.

    I saw the Misfits a few times like 10 years ago (granted it was without Danzig) but they played for like 400 people.

    Saw Danzig solo, and he played for an even smaller crowd.

    Put them together and they fill a 10,000 seat arena?

    You guys clearly underestimate the demand for the original misfits.

    Only area show. They had to go big for this one.

    I wonder if it really is the only one or if they’ll add more. I’m happy they’re doing more shows but I wish they would announce them as a “tour” to know if I really need to make plans for it or if one will come closer. I was actually in Newark last year on the same weekend to see Mel Brooks, so maybe this will become a tradition. Really wish it was Trio again though, Suicidal Tendencies is just kind of meh for me.

    Don’t know if anything will ever top RF Chicago for the feel though. That set was so much fun.

    I remember hearing about The Misfits getting paid hella money to only play a select amount of shows (possibly five?)

    I would expect them to be able to fill 5-6k. 10 seems big. Idk...

    Prudential Center is 18,000 capacity. They'll have no problem filling it out.

    The Los Angeles show sold out in under a minute. The Las Vegas show did not sell out.

    I'm definitely planning on making the trip for this one too.

    Did they change up the set at all?

    This show will singlehandedly keep Yondr in business

    That's absolutely insane that this will fill a 18k seat arena. It must be the fact that these are only one off shows, and where they are located. There's no way this would fill 18k in Dallas.

    im not worried about this selling out...although how many misfits/suicidal tendencies fans want to see this type of show in an arena in seats?

    I like seats. I am old.

    Setlists were the same in LV and LA, but they dropped 1 and added 2 songs since Riot Fest 2016.

    I saw them at Riot Fest Chicago and thought it sucked. Danzig sounded like he was huffing and puffing and couldn’t keep up the whole time.

    It’d be expensive at the Starland, Stone Pony Summer Stage or anywhere they played. You’d probably also be way less likely to get tickets for face value if they did three nights at Starland. All of the shows they have done have been arenas or festivals. It doesn’t seem like they aren’t doing any clubs and “inimate” show. They maybe “legendary” but they are one of the most whored bands of all-time. It seems you can get the Misfits logo on anything and anywhere.

    This is kind of like Guns ‘N Roses the last two Summer tours. After the Chinese Democracy album / tour(s) when the only members people knew where Axel and Dizzy they played smaller / mid-sized arenas veruses them playing stadiums and big arenas. Granted, a lot of the shows where well attend but most where far from selling out. Slash tours by himself and plays clubs / theaters. Not that he matters much but Dizzy played in Akron last week and a total of 20 people showed up (mostly members of the local bands that opened). Lol.

    When The Misfits where touring without Danzig they’d play those type of venues here as well but they’d usually do well and Danzing would play House of Blues (I thunk). People just want to go more when they hear the words “one time” “reunion”, “original line-up” or “farwell” it seems. I do agree with you though, here if they came to Quicken Loans Arena they would fill it (just like GNR didn’t) but when they play these one-off shows in big cities they’ll sell it well because people from NYC, Philly, Jersey, etc will come. But markets that are smaller? Totally agree with you, no way they’d sell out and as soon as they started doing more of these, they hype would wear down and people wouldn’t care as much, just like GNR.
