Dee Snider Says He Doesn’t Think He’ll Do Any More Live Shows

Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider recently replied to a fan and revealed that he is not planning to do more live shows. The rocker stressed that he’d focus on writing, directing, and producing instead of performing.

After releasing their iconic album ‘Stay Hungry,’ which harbored their iconic songs ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It,’ and ‘I Wanna Rock,’ Twisted Sister reached a very successful point in their career. The band is known for its lineup consisting of Dee Snider, Jay Jay French, Eddie Ojeda, Mark Mendoza, and A.J. Pero.

However, they went through many changes before establishing this lineup while performing in clubs. With Dee Snider’s contributions, they released six studio albums. The band split in 1988 and later reunited in 1997 to release two more albums and continued to perform until 2015 actively. In March 2015, Twisted Sister’s drummer A.J. Pero passed away in his sleep of a heart attack, and the band’s ending followed.

They released a statement depicting their sadness, and the same year they organized a farewell tour to say goodbye to fans. Their last concert was on November 12, 2016, and since then, Twisted Sister didn’t reunite as a band. According to recent tweets by Dee Snider, they don’t seem to be performing together again. He stated that he would not do more live shows himself and instead focus on writing, directing, and producing.

Here is what the fan asked Snider:

“Dee Snider, I’m watching the old concert videos of Lamour Brooklyn any chance of Twisted Sister coming back? Please say yes.”

Here is what Snider replied:

“I can’t, but I love that you want us to.”

When that fan asked if he tours Springfield, Illinois, Snider sadly replied:

“Charlie, I am Dee Downer tonight. No, I don’t tour anymore. I don’t even think I’ll do any more shows. I’m focusing on writing, directing, and producing. Sorry man.”
