GLENN DANZIG's Performance At FUN FUN FUN FEST Cut Short (Video)

Glenn Danzig's performance at the Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas was cut short last night (Friday, November 4) after an hour because the festival promoters were required to enforce the city's curfew.

According to a post from the event organizers on the official Fun Fun Fun Fest Facebook page, Danzig was scheduled to take the stage at 8:15 p.m. but made the crowd wait after initially insisting that he wasn't going to play because he said it was too cold and he had a cough. The promoters allege that Glenn demanded vitamins, French onion soup and a Wendy's chicken sandwich and insisted on having stage heaters and an on-site doctor.

Danzig finally appeared onstage at 8:55, nearly 45 minutes past his scheduled stage call. At 10 p.m, when Auditorium Shores venue rules stated that music must be shut off, Danzig blamed the Fun Fun Fun Fest organizers, telling the crowd, "I guess they've [the organizers] never heard of a thing called a riot before."

By the time Danzig's performance was forced to come to an early end, he had only gotten through two MISFITS songs as part of his "Danzig Legacy" set featuring material from the singer's former bands SAMHAIN and the MISFITS as well as selections from his solo work disappointing many of the fans, who took to Facebook and Twitter to slam the musician for his allegedly unprofessional behavior.
