The Original MISFITS join PSYCHO LAS VEGAS 2019 Lineup– added as Saturday Headliner to America’s Most Anticipated Summer Festival
Iconic band makes rare festival appearance this August at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, joining the likes of Opeth, Electric Wizard, Bad Religion, Clutch, Beach House and more
The Original MISFITS featuring original singer/songwriter Glenn Danzig and original bassist Jerry Only, ride again in Las Vegas! The legendary band returns to Sin City to headline PSYCHO LAS VEGAS 2019 on Saturday, Aug. 17 at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. This all-in move is no bluff, PSYCHO LAS VEGAS hosts one of the year’s best festival lineups with the addition of the Original MISFITS. The band will be making only their second-ever festival appearance since reuniting in 2016 for a handful of special engagements. PSYCHO LAS VEGAS is no stranger to the bold and daring – making waves across the festival scene since the announcement of its move to Mandalay Bay for the seventh edition of the annual rock n’ roll pilgrimage. This year’s PSYCHO LAS VEGAS will also play host to Opeth’s only 2019 U.S. performance, the return of fan favorites Electric Wizard and High on Fire, and more than 70 other artists from around the world gracing four stages at the majestic resort August 16-18.
From the time of their first gig in 1977, the MISFITS and their iconic imagery went on to become one of the most crucially influential, genre-defying bands to ever emerge from North America. The MISFITS’ significance extends well beyond the narrowed path of punk rock, metal and hardcore. Although not cognizant of how significant they would become, what the Original MISFITS achieved in their initial seven-year window deconstructed and redefined rock music.
The MISFITS with Danzig’s anthemic songs and unmistakable voice, Only’s ferocious bass sound and the Original MISFITS melody-induced choruses and authentically bruising musicianship, cemented their importance with all ensuing generations. Now, legions of diehard fans from around the world will have the opportunity to hear the original band that forges a level of intensity unprecedented in the new millennium.
More than 70 bands will grace four stages at Mandalay Bay over the three-day festival, including the newly renovated Mandalay Bay Events Center; the iconic House of Blues Las Vegas; Mandalay Bay Beach, featuring a wave pool and lazy river; and Rhythm & Riffs, a Vegas-style lounge in the middle of the casino floor. While VIP High Roller passes quickly sold out, three-day General Admission tickets are available for $249 (excluding tax and fees) in addition to single-day tickets for $109 plus fees per day.
