The Gibson Amphitheatre will be closing its doors soon, but not before a grand celebration of Danzig. On Friday, August 30th, Glenn Danzig will be joined by Doyle (of the Misfits fame) for a special mini-set, Cherie Currie, Scar the Martyr (featuring Joey Jordison of Slipknot), and Huntress.
Said Glenn Danzig in a statement (sic):
It’s probably my Favorite Place to play in California so I’m gonna miss it!! And just to make this an even more Historic Event I’ve got a little Something Special planned for this.
Tickets for the show are on sale now via LiveNation and cost $34-$84.20.

In 2011 we covered the Mayhem Festival way out in San Bernardino at the San Manuel Amphitheater, nestled deep within the pocket of cities outside the crest of LA county that are commonly referred to as the Inland Empire. Last year, the festival was headlined in this location by a one-off performance by Dethklok, the quasi-cartoon band headed up by Brendon Small from Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse. Dethklok was curiously joined by the nu-metal bands Disturbed and Godsmack, both of which don’t really pack sufficient punch to be considered true “metal” bands. This year, we returned to cover the yearly festival, only this time the lineup was everything a modern metalhead could hope for. The 2012 edition included Slipknot, Slayer, Motorhead, Anthrax, The Devil Wears Prada, Asking Alexandria, As I Lay Dying and more.
