THE ORIGINAL MISFITS ADDED TO RIOT FEST 2022

Performing Walk Among Us (40th Anniversary Set) in Full

Glenn Danzig, Jerry Only, and Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein will headline Riot Fest 2022 with My Chemical Romance

2022 3-Day Passes NOW ON SALE; 2021 Single-Day Tickets On Sale This Week
CHICAGO, IL: After quickly selling out 3-day passes for 2021, Riot Fest is firing off a shockingly early announcement for next year’s festival: The Original Misfits will headline Riot Fest 2022, performing their landmark first album Walk Among Us in full for its 40th anniversary. 3-day passes for next year’s festival are on sale now; single-day passes to this year’s festival (September 17–19, 2021) will go on sale this week, alongside more band announcements for 2021.

The 1982 record, celebrating its 40th anniversary next year, is a debut hailed by Misfits fans—as well as by publications like Rolling Stone and Pitchfork, in recent years—as one of the greatest punk records of all time. There’s no doubt that all hell will break loose when Glenn Danzig, Jerry Only,
and Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein take the stage to play the first Misfits album front-to-back where the three forefathers of horror punk first reunited in 2016. Highlights will surely include tracks like “Night of the Living Dead,” “Skulls,” and “Mommy, Can I go Out and Kill Tonight?”.

They’ll be joined by the long-awaited return of My Chemical Romance, a hotly-anticipated reunion that Riot Fest fans have long hoped for, finally realized. The group initially announced their reunion in 2019, playing a single show at Shrine Exposition Hall in Los Angeles before postponing their
entire sold-out North American tour—including a slot at Riot Fest—to 2022. It’s safe to say the anticipation for their headlining performance at Riot Fest 2022 is already through the roof.

As a treat to fans, previous ticket holders can purchase 2022 passes at a special price for a limited time; ticket transfers to next year, as well as refunds, are now available (more info is available on Riot Fest’s website). Safety measures regarding COVID-19—a top priority this year—will be frequently updated, as directed by local health and public safety officials.

Founded in 2005, Riot Fest is an independent music festival featuring the best of punk, rock ‘n’ roll, hip hop, metal, alternative, and just about everything in between. Founder Riot Mike is credited with helping to reunite iconic bands like Naked Raygun, the Replacements, the Misfits, and Jawbreaker, among many other reunions—a staple of Riot Fest, alongside full album performances, carnival rides, and the occasional butter sculpture.
