You’ll Have To Lock Away Your Phone At An Upcoming Original Misfits Show


Glenn Danzig has never been a fan of filming happening at his live shows, but at least one of his upcoming Misfits reunion shows this month will see him go to new extremes. While not the first to employ such a technology (comedians such as Dave Chapelle & Chris Rock and more have used it in the past,) those attending the show will be forced to lock their phones away in a special case created by Yondr. The below statement was sent to ticket holders explaining the situation:

“We’re writing to inform you about the updated cellphone policy at the Original Misfits Reunion Show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

There will be no use of cellphones, smart watches, cameras or recording devices permitted during the show. This exclusive one-off performance will be completely phone-free. Tickets MUST be pre-printed prior to arriving at the venue. Guests who do not have printed E-Tickets will not be permitted into the venue. Additional re-print fees will apply at the Box Office.

Upon arrival at the venue, all phones and smart watches will be secured in Yondr cases that will be unlocked at the end of the show. You’ll maintain possession of your phone throughout the event, and if needed, can access your phone at designated Yondr unlocking stations in the lobby. Your phone will be re-locked in a Yondr case before you re-enter the performance.

Anyone caught using a cellphone during the performance will be removed from the venue. We appreciate your cooperation in creating a phone-free viewing experience.”

A diagram of how the technology works can be found over at this location. The Original Misfits will be performing the following two shows this month:

12/28 Las Vegas, NV – MGM Grand Garden Arena
12/30 Inglewood, CA – The Forum

Alkaline Trio and Fear will join them on both dates.
