Twisted Sister to Play Final Show This Weekend

Twisted Sister in the ’80s

Twisted Sister will wrap up their four-decade career with a performance in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, this Saturday, October 22. The end of their appropriately titled (or is that inappropriately titled?) final set of gigs is called the “40 and Fuck It World Tour.”

The classic rock band’s gig this weekend will take place at Badlands Pawn Guns Gold and Rock ’N’ Roll.

“Having a band like Twisted Sister do their final U.S. show is unbelievable and we could not be more excited,” said the venue’s Chuck Brennan. “Badlands Pawn is the perfect match for these types of shows as the sound, lights, video and intimacy is unparalleled.”

Badlands Pawn recently hosted the only U.S. date for the reunion of the classic lineup of Dokken, which hadn’t performed together in over 20 years. Other acts that have performed at the venue range from KISS to Joan Jett and Rick Springfield to Disturbed and the Offspring to Megadeth.

Twisted Sister, formed in 1973 by guitarist Jay Jay French, is still fronted by singer Dee Snider. They lost drummer A.J. Pero to a heart attack in 2015, at age 55. At the time, Snider made this statement: “A.J. was the final piece in a band that would become an international sensation and one of the greatest live rock acts to ever hit the stage. His sledgehammer assault on the drums helped drive Twisted Sister to greatness and inspired me to rock every single show. My heart breaks knowing I will never feel the power of his beat behind me, or turn to see his face smiling broadly from the sheer joy he got from doing what he loved. I will always remember that smile.”

Tickets for Twisted Sister start at $85 and can either be purchased at the Badlands Pawn Box Office or online. Badlands Pawn, Gold & Jewelry is located at 1600 W.
