We may see at least one more in Europe– sorry–they have me on a gag order. Can’t say where or when. Same deal with the last show. It’s entirely too early to announce as the business end is still likely being worked out. I promise to get it posted as soon as I hear the official word.
They posted today about rehearsals–and all they would tell me is that the setlist is gonna knock our socks off…and there may be some old school gems there! So something for SMFs of all ages.May 11, 2016 at 1:24 pm #2205
they should play 2 set at their final shows ahahah 🙂
would like to hear you know i cry too. love is for sucker, tonight. and hot love.. but well that’s impossible…

Their last ever performance as part of a huge festival ???………………that is not what I expected and I think it’s not appropriate. They should’ve thought of a better way to go out…………….a headline show in NYC would have been the only reasonable way for me. I don’t know this festival in NJ, neither do I know the festival site but I know for sure that this is all WRONG ! Forget about the big bucks, book a 5 – 6K venue in NY and do it there. That’s the way it should be…………………….just my two cents………………May 16, 2016 at 10:03 am #2249
i agree 100%.
i’m also disapointed. i love to see concert but i would have loved to see a city where there is something to see.
this place seems boring. and it look like a will get lost there..
weel i don’t know how many people would show up at a headline show in New York i think in 2011 at best buy theater there was ticket available day of the show. and i wanted to see them again in that place.May 16, 2016 at 4:34 pm #2250
where is all the SMF that used to post here some years ago?
SMF cindy……?May 29, 2016 at 4:10 pm #2337
I have to agree with you Gilles. Lakewood NJ is not exactly where I had hoped it would end. They have told me “Oct 1st is it!” so I’ve planned accordingly too (Had to plead and beg to get off from work that day) My big wish is to see a small NYC club send off for the SMFs.
As for SMF Cyndi- she has had some personal problems but I saw her on facebook last week and she is doing well.May 29, 2016 at 4:21 pm #2338
In NYC, from what I understand (I could be waaaaay off here) you have clubs that hold 2,000 or so and then you have the enormous Madison Square Garden. Let’s be realistic here…TS is not going to sell out the garden. The smaller clubs in NYC would easily sell out, and while that’s awesome for TS, it’s pretty good chance that the last show will draw a lot of people and it would really suck if a lot of the fans can’t see the last show due to tickets. I’ll also toss in that playing NYC is not cheap for the band–you have to put up band members and crew in hotels (no, not everyone walks home like Jay Jay), feeding everyone, etc. and it really adds up. The outdoor festival in Jersey will attract fans from NJ, NY, CT, MA. It’s moderately close to Newark, an international airport, and the hotels in the area and other associated costs aren’t unreasonable.
So it what it is. Maybe the band will reconsider and add something at the last minute due to fan input–who knows? It can’t hurt to ask. I liked the Best Buy/Nokia/New name Theatre too (I think it has a new name again). I wish there was a friends & family show–a little tiny club somewhere where it was open to family, friends, SMF card holders and those who bought thru the website. But that’s my wish–playing small clubs is not always so enjoyable for Dee and the boys.
We have a long way until October 1st. Let’s just see how the rest of the summer unfolds and let your voices be heard.May 30, 2016 at 6:40 pm #2339
All I can say is this– I do not know how often Jay Jay checks the slamboard, but I know he is on facebook a lot. Make your voices heard (in a respectful manner). Twisted Sister has done many things in the past for fans, so if you make your opinions heard, perhaps it will help.
