Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie have extended their recently announced co-headlining “Twins of Evil” tour – arguably the most exciting rock tour this year – to take in four arena shows in the UK. Debauchery, theatrics, ghoulish imagery, and a full-on assault on all the senses are what’s in store for fans, as part of a mammoth U.S. and 10-country European tour.
The highly anticipated tour hits the UK on 26th November at London’s O2 Arena, before Manchester Arena, Glasgow SECC and Birmingham NIA, promising defiant rock’n’roll showmanship in the form of these unholy rollers.
“Finally! Why did the most obvious tour take so long to happen? Who knows? Who cares? It’s happening now,” stated Zombie. “If good taste is the chief enemy of great art, then we should be able to fill the Louvre with this fucking tour. Be prepared for something wicked this way a-coming.”
“I have sympathy for the Whore of Babylon that gave birth to these twins of evil, and this abomination of a tour,” says Marilyn Manson. “There is no babysitter, and there is no repairing her womb. If Rob Zombie doesn’t fuck you up, than I surely will.” “Hide all drugs and firearms… I’m coming to town,” Manson stated.
For the “Twins of Evil” tour, Zombie and his band of maniacs – John 5/guitar, Piggy D/bass and drummer Ginger Fish – will bring their elaborate, multi-media production, complete with hair-raising theatrics, animatronic robots, oversized LED screens, a non-stop collage of psychotronic monster film clips, a spectacular light show, a gigantic robot with flames shooting out of its body, pyrotechnics, insane guitar riffs and vicious beats.
The UK shows for the “Twins of Evil” tour are as follows:
26/11 London O2 Arena
27/11 Manchester Arena
28/11 Glasgow SECC
29/11 Birmingham NIA
On August 6, prior to the kick off of the “Twins of Evil” tour, “Mondo Sex Head”, an album featuring new and unique remixes of Rob Zombie classics by some of today’s top DJs, including KoRn’s Jonathan “JDevil” Davis, Photek, the Bloody Beetroots, †††, Kraddy, Drumcorps, and Ki: Theory will be released via Spinefarm/Universal.
Marilyn Manson’s eighth full-length album “Born Villain” is out now on Cooking Vinyl.
