Marilyn Manson And Rob Zombie Join Forces Again For Twins Of Evil: The Second Coming Tour

Well, this is a little unexpected. Marilyn Manson revealed on Twitter that he and Rob Zombie have joined forces once again for the Twins of Evil: The Second Coming tour. The co-headlining tour kicks off July 11 in Detriot, MI and wraps up August 29 in Irvine, CA. Check out the announced dates below.

A Ticketmaster pre-sale will take place March 19 while everyone else will have a chance to grab tickets March 24.

Rob Zombie and Manson previously toured together in 2012 on the Twins of Evil tour. Though things started out well, there were several incidents between Manson and Zombie. The first started after their performance in Chicago with Manson posting on Twitter “Sorry to Chicago for not getting to play ‘Beautiful People.’ You can sing it in between Zombie songs, his band has already played it.”

The incident escalated the next night in Detroit when Manson thought Zombie purposely cut into his set time and launched into a tirade saying “I’m sorry if you came to see Rob Zombie, and he can’t come on, because I’m going to beat his ass … twice … three fucking times.” Zombie responded by yelling various obscenities directed at Manson. To add fuel to the fire, he covered Alice Cooper’s “School’s Out” and dedicated it to “the only real shock rocker there ever was, Alice Cooper, not some punk-ass bitch.”

Zombie addressed the issue on Facebook saying:

“I don’t get it. Christ, I’ve known some of his crew for 20 fucking years and some of his crew used work for me. It’s all good. No one would fuck with someone’s show. It is ridiculous … Well, of course, I felt the need to respond to the ‘kick my ass remark.’ Who wouldn’t? Although I wish I had kept it backstage and kept the fans out of it. It is all 4th grade fight after school nonsense of which I have never dealt with on tour before. Co-headlining tours always go smooth because everything is cut 50/50 and I mean everything. No one fucks with anyone’s show. It is even fucking Steven. I’ve done it co-headlining tours many times before and have had no troubles.”

Considering their troubled history, it’s surprising the two are touring again. Maybe they can play nice this time around.
