Dee Snider Targets Bands Doing Farewells And Reuniting Again

Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider recently shared a post to talk about the band’s farewell tour and reuniting again and again on his official Twitter account. Snider also targeted the other groups that continue their musical journey following their one last tour announcements.

Thanks to their flourishing career, Twisted Sister became a milestone band for the metal music genre with iconic records that hit the charts worldwide and unique makeup and costumes. The band’s classic lineup included Snider, Jay Jay French, Eddie ‘Fingers’ Ojeda, Mark ‘The Animal’ Mendoza, and A. J. Pero quickly gained fame and commercial success. However, ‘Come Out and Play’ couldn’t be as successful as the previous ones, and it caused problems among the band members.

Therefore, after they released ‘Love Is For Suckers,’ Snider left the band in 1987, Twisted Sister announced its break up shortly after. The band reunited in 1997 and continued working on their albums and touring until 2016. The farewell tour after A. J. Pero’s death ended on November 12, 2016. The band didn’t perform live shows again, and recently the frontman stated that they still didn’t have a plan like that.

In his recent tweet, Snider drew attention to the band members’ decision not to be like some bands that tricked their fans about their last concerts or tours. They agreed that it was done when they announced the farewell. However, he knew that countless bands and musicians had sold more tickets or items by reminding their longtime fans that it was their only chance to witness their live performances, which was a lie.

Snider’s tweet read:

“I wouldn’t hold your breath. Twisted Sister promised ourselves we wouldn’t be like every other band, doing a farewell, then coming back. We always considered that bullsh*t, p*ssy move. Yeah, you know who I’m talking about (every artist who pulled that sh*t.).”

He added:

“To further expound, I don’t think any band should retire unless they want to. Stay forever; your fans don’t want you to go. But don’t say farewell; sell us the higher priced ticket, the goodbye program, and the ‘No More Tours’ t-shirt, then come back a couple of years later!”
