Rockers Twisted Sister are reuniting to perform at a horror convention.

Dee Snider and his bandmates Jay Jay French, Eddie Ojeda and Mark Mendoza will hit the stage at the Spooky Empire convention in Tampa, Fla., to celebrate the 35th anniversary of their classic album Stay Hungry.

Twisted Sister split in 2016 at the end of a 40th-anniversary tour, and 64-year-old Snider recently insisted it was the right decision to call it quits, telling SiriusXM, “I love the guys; we’re all friends, and we ended on a really great note.

“Honestly, I can’t do today what I did at the last Twisted Sister show, physically. I’m not getting any younger, and stuff is deteriorating, things are deteriorating, and there’s things that I knew… I was thrashing like a lunatic, throwing my body on the ground, and I said, ‘I can’t go much longer.’

“I felt by stopping Twisted Sister, I at least could change gears as a performer.”
