Fans who’d like to catch Glenn Danzig’s “Blackest of the Black” tour this year will have to come to him; he’s sticking to West Coast stages because he prefers to only tour within driving or short flying distance of his California home.
“I want to do shows where I feel like I won’t be wasting my whole day away,” Danzig said. “You’re on stage for only two hours a night. The rest of the day, I’m stuck in a hotel or a bus or something. This way, it’s only two weeks. Pretty much, if I can’t fly home in an hour or two, I can drive home. I think it will be much easier for me to do…I’m not going to be able to do any shows in the Midwest or on the East Coast until I can figure out a way to do that in a way that I don’t hate it.”
We asked Glenn for a comment, and just received this email:
whats up idolaters. hope all is well. i am at home in cali, just hanging out and trying to get my sea monkeys tank to work right. did you ever get those? they look like baco bits and then you put them in water and they move around before they stop moving. i think one of my two weener (sp?) dogs is eating them or paying them to keep quiet. ???
anyway, you asked why i stay near home. basically i have a small back patio garden and two seasons of rescue me on the tivo, and i like to stay near what i know, understand? plus the old lady makes a mean glass of lemonade. haaa.
