Dee Snider: Twisted Sister reunion tour "getting close"

Twisted Sister wrapped up a farewell tour in late 2016 with no intent of hitting the road again. But with significant offers coming in, frontman Dee Snider and company appear to be reversing course.

In a new interview with The Hook Rocks! podcast, Snider offered an update on the status of the band, who did reunite for a one-off performance in 2023 for Twisted Sister’s induction to the Metal Hall of Fame. At the time, Snider was somewhat adamant about only reuniting for special occasions… but the money might sway him and his bandmates otherwise.

“As a result of all the bands retiring and dying, the offers get bigger and bigger for the holdouts to come back,” Snider explained (as transcribed by Blabbermouth). “At some point, you’ve gotta say, ‘Well, how can I say no to that?'”

On a full-blown reunion tour, Dee continued: “Is it there yet? No. Is it getting close? Yeah. Is there talk amongst us, like, ‘Well, in the event that the numbers do get there, and they sure as hell seem to be going in that direction, how are we gonna do this?’ So there’s a little bit of that conversation.”

Talk within the band has increased regarding both the financial implications of a reunion as well as the physical and logistical aspects of hitting the road and returning to the stage.

“And that’s a recent occurrence, that the conversation has gone from ‘never’ to ‘in the event that they make as an offer we can’t refuse, what’s the plan?'” added Snider. “And there’s some very general discussion on that, involving personal trainers, diets, hair extensions. And that’s the first time in eight years that the conversation has changed.”

Perhaps most importantly, Dee said the relationship between band members remains amicable: “We’re all friends, by the way. The surviving guys, we all talk and we’re all friends and we love each other. And that was one of the great things that came out of getting back together the first time is that we managed to fix the friendships and be friends and that, to me, is really why I wanted to do it in the first place, getting back [together] last time… So, anyway, we’ll see what happens.”
