On Friday night’s edition of Loudwire Nights (Feb. 9), Blothar the Berserker admitted he doesn’t think GWAR will ever be invited to perform on Broadway in New York City.
“We would take over a Chuck E. Cheese if they’d let us do it,” Blothar said, “but to be honest with you, Broadway is a little too highbrow for GWAR. I mean, let’s face it, we’re really more of a Vegas or Branson act.”
As Blothar considered Branson, he also said he had a hard time believing the Sphere would allow Gwar to take the stage in Vegas.
“There’s like a zero chance that they’re going to let our freak show in there. I can tell you that. It would be great, I mean, it would be un-freaking-believable.”
What it Was Like For GWAR to Work With Lzzy Hale
In addition to wondering where GWAR might fit in for a residency, Blothar opened up about what it was like working with Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale on “The Cutter” from 2022’s The New Dark Ages.
“Lzzy Hale is unbelievable,” he said. “She’s one of the greatest singers that I’ve ever had a chance to work with. She’s just absolutely fantastic. She’s got great grange and she has a great attitude, too. She’s a fun, sweet person — even GWAR can appreciate someone like that.”
For fans who were unaware of Hale’s actual identity, Blothar was quick to reveal the truth.
“She is a front. She’s taking on a human form because she’s smart. She’s a thinking lady, like Madonna … But, she is from Scumdoggia and she is, in fact, Clitaurus Maximus.”

Blothar was happy to say they had such a good time with Hale, they’d be up for joining forces again.
“We’ll have her any time.”
