Danzig to Play 2013 Revolver Golden Gods, Gene Simmons, Marilyn Manson + More to Appear
This is what you call a kick ass lineup! The annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards has just announced some intriguing additions to the show’s 2013 event. Danzig have been confirmed to perform at this year’s Golden Gods, with former Misfits guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein set to join the band for a special guest appearance. Additionally, Gene Simmons, Marilyn Manson, Alice Cooper will grace the awards show along with more of rock’s biggest names.
The inclusion of Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein performing with Glenn Danzig is incredibly significant, as the relationships between classic Misfits members have been complicated through the years. Doyle has joined Danzig onstage a number of times in the past, but the Golden Gods will likely serve as the guitarist’s most spotlit appearance with Danzig. As previously reported, the Golden Gods Awards Show will also feature performances by Metallica, Stone Sour, Anthrax and more.
Further appearances at the show will include KISS’ Gene Simmons, Marilyn Manson, Alice Cooper, Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Anselmo, Jason Newsted, Kerry King, Zakk Wylde, Korn‘s Brian ‘Head’ Welch and Munky and many more, including Fozzy vocalist and WWE wrestler Chris Jericho, who will host the event once again.
In other Golden Gods news, the city of Los Angeles will officially declare May 2 as ‘Golden Gods Day,’ with Councilwoman Jan Perry opening the awards show with the official proclamation.
For those not attending the May 2 ceremony, no worries! Revolver will host an online broadcast of the awards show on their official website.
