Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson to Terrorize the Country With “Twins of Evil” Tour
Well moms, just when you thought the era of shock rockers had passed, two of the music industry’s biggest shock rocker extraordinaires have decided to team up for a 32 city U.S./European tour.
Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson kick off the “Twins of Evil” tour this fall on September 28th in Phoenix and wrapping up in Bologna Italy on December 12th.
“Finally! Why did the most obvious tour take so long to happen? Who knows? Who cares? It’s happening now,” Zombie said in a release. ”If good taste is the chief enemy of great art, then we should be able to fill the Louvre with this f***ing tour. Be prepared for something wicked this way a-coming.”
Rob Zombie is no stranger to guts and gore. He’s directed such movies as “House of 1000 Corpses”, “The Devil’s Rejects”, and with the remake of cult classic slasher flick “Halloween” that spawned a…..well….less than desirable sequel. He also has an upcoming movie titled “The Lords of Salem” which, I’m sure, will be promoted heavily on this tour since he hasn’t exactly focused on his music as of late.
Manson, however, released his newest album “Born Villain” on May 1st of this year. I’ve had the chance to listen to it although I’ll admit I’m not the biggest Manson fan and, well, all I can say is his new stuff sounds just like his old stuff so if you’re a Manson fan, this album should not disappoint.
