The Misfits return…or do they?

unnamed (19)Last week the announcement for The Original Misfits to return to Chicago looked like this:  THE ORIGINAL MISFITS TRIUMPHANTLY RETURN TO CHICAGO
FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY ON SAT. APRIL 27th, 2019 AT ALLSTATE ARENA
THE ORIGINAL MISFITS – GLENN DANZIG AND JERRY ONLY
SUPPORT FOR THIS MASSIVE CAN’T-MISS EVENT WILL BE
FEAR, VENOM INC., and POWER TRIP

Exciting right?  Yet there was one name that was missing, that of our beloved DOYLE.  Now, this happened last time as well, at first.  But tickets go on sale today and unless they would announce Doyle’s return or maybe Bobby Steele, then is it worth the price of at least $280?  I say no ‘effin way.  I’m okay with shelling out the money since I missed out on last year’s reunions and never saw them all together as a kid.  Maybe Steele is the “original” for many people, but Doyle is the guy who really has made a presence, is one helluva guitar player, and is the one person in this trio without a massive ego.  How do I know this?  I’ve had the utmost pleasure of interviewing Doyle numerous times and have gotten to know him a bit.  The guy is super genuine and he has been getting screwed over by his brother Jerry for years.  So, I’m not shelling out plane fare, a hotel, and an exorbitant ticket price for 2/3 of the Misfits…bring all the awesome support acts you want, but you better start letting people know if Doyle is in or out.

Here is an email the Misfits sent out:
