TWISTED SISTER singer Dee Snider has said that he doesn’t think he will play any more live shows.

Snider touched on the possibility of performing live again while answering a fan question on Twitter about performing in the Springfield, Illinois area in the future. Snider wrote: “I am Dee Downer tonight. No, I don’t tour anymore. I don’t even think I’ll do any more shows. I’m focusing on writing, directing and producing. Sorry man.”

When one Twitter user responded, “You’ve said this before… I believe nothing!”, Dee replied: “Well TWISTED SISTER hasn’t reunited…” Another fan then wrote, “Yet…?”, to which Snider replied: “I wouldn’t hold your breath. @TwistedSisterNY promised ourselves we wouldn’t be like every other band, doing a farewell, then coming back. We always considered that a bullshit, pussy move…. Yeah, you know who I’m talking about (every artist who pulled that shit).”

Dee would later tweet: “To further expound…I don’t think any band should retire unless they want to. Stay forever; your fans don’t want you to go. But don’t say farewell, sell us the higher priced ticket, the goodbye program, and the ‘No More Tours’ t-shirt…then come back a couple of years later!”

In 2016, TWISTED SISTER commenced their farewell tour, called appropriately “Forty And Fuck It“, in celebration of the band’s 40th anniversary.
