Has Dee Snider Played His Last Show?
Former Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider announced he was taking a break from live performance and suggested he might not return.
He said he had a number of projects to focus on during the rest of 2019 and through next year, along with personal commitments that would also keep him occupied.
“Now that my summer shows are over, I can tell you that I am taking a break from concert performing for a while,” Snider said in an Instagram video. “I’ve got no more concerts the rest of this year. 2020, I’m clearing the boards there as well. We’ll see what happens after that. In the meantime, you’ll see me around – I’ll be popping up here and there. I’ll be doing a song or something with other people. But as far as concerts go, that’s got to take a break.”
Snider noted that he'll "be working on my novel, I’ve got some movies in production, a television show, things like that, and I’ve got some family situations to take care of. Everything’s cool, but you gotta take care of the home fires every now and then, you know? So, not sure when I’ll be back on the concert stage. If I’ll be back. We’ll see – but I’m taking a break for a while. Talk to you soon.”
Twisted Sister completed their farewell tour in November 2016, following the death of drummer A.J. Pero the previous year. Since then, Snider has released the solo albums We Are the Ones and For the Love of Metal, and continues to appear on TV and in movies.
