Twisted Sister’s frontman Dee Snider respond to a lifelong fan’s tweet reminding him of an iconic Twisted Sister performance and claimed that his suggestion of doing a 25th-anniversary show was denied by the managers of a venue.
The legendary vocalist of Twisted Sister has been using his social media accounts to express his opinions on social and political matters. Dee also responds to the messages he receives from his devoted fans asking questions about his music career and personal life.
As you might recall, Dee Snider had a discussion with a fan on Twitter who claimed the 45th president of the US, Donald Trump, was a good person while accusing the President-elect Joe Biden of constructing a crime family with the Chinese government.
While the discussion continued with the involvement of more and more fans on Twitter, one of them changed the subject by stating he was a lifelong Twisted Sister fan who witnessed their show at Adventureland in 1979.
As you may know, in the summer of 1979, the iconic metal band Twisted Sister gave a free concert in Adventureland in Farmingdale to more than 23,000 people who came to see their favorite band.
Here’s what Twisted Sister’s Jay Jay French previously stated about the show:
“We ended up shutting down Route 110. Cars were abandoned on the side of the road and fans were writing ‘Disco Sucks’ on the side of planes at the Republic Airport. As a result, we were banned from doing outdoor shows in the Northeast.”
In his response to the fan, Dee Snider revealed that the story of how he approached the people at the Adventureland and rejected by them. Apparently, Snider suggested them doing a 25th-anniversary Twisted Sister show, however, the managers of the venue denied Dee’s request. The iconic singer claimed that no one expected more than 23,000 people to show up for an ‘unsigned band’ back in 1979.
Here’s what the Twisted Sister fan stated in his tweet:
“I am dead serious about being a lifelong fan. I was at Adventureland. Route 110 had to be closed. There were people everywhere. (they never did that again)”
Here’s how Dee Snider replied to the fan’s claims about the Adventureland show:
“Nice to meet you, Jerry. You know I actually approached the people at Adventureland about doing a 25yr anniversary Twisted Sister show there and their response was, ‘No thanks. We’re still cleaning up!’ I guess no one expected 23K kids to show up for an unsigned band in 1979!”
