Dee Snider has revealed that he probably won’t play any more live shows.

TWISTED SISTER frontman addressed the possibility of returning to the stage while answering a fan question on Twitter about performing in the Springfield, Illinois area in the future. 

Snider wrote on May 17: “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 fan 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 bullsh*t, p*ssy move…. Yeah, you know who I’m talking about (every artist who pulled that sh*t).”

Dee later added in a separate 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!”
