Twisted Sister Plans Reunion Tour

The guys of Twisted Sister may soon have to retrofit one of their biggest with the lyrics "We're not gonna take retirement."

After years of estrangement and months of discussion, the five musicians who helped Twisted Sister rise to notoriety in the mid-80s are planning a reunion tour. A spokesperson for the group announced that Dee Snider, Jay Jay French, Mark Mendoza, A.J. Pero, and Eddie Ojeda will don their trademark mark-up and color-coded stage duds for a select string of dates that will mark the line-up's first tour in 12 years. The band is currently entertaining offers, but plans to play a limited number of shows this summer.

The tide started to turn in favor of a TS reunion last year when the members got together to record a track for the soundtrack of the Snider-penned film "Strangeland," the group first new recording in 12 years.

Earlier this year, French told MTV News that the band had not ruled out touring together, but noted that the conditions would have to be "absolutely

right" (see "Twisted Sister Guitarist Re-Teams With Sevendust, Ponders Reunion Tour").
