Two of the biggest names in hard rock are headed back out on tour together this summer. Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie will embark on a 26-show co-headlining trek under the banner, "Twins of Evil: The Second Coming Tour," starting July 11 in Detroit and running until Aug. 29 with a final show in Irvine, Calif. The tour’s announcement on Monday follows Manson’s recent return to performing after a falling stage prop during a New York City concert sent the theatrical singer to the hospital back in September of last year.
The tour will see the two hard rock performers playing to mostly major cities around North America over the two month span, including Ohio’s Blossom Music Center near Manson’s hometown of Canton, and the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, Mass., close to where Zombie grew up just outside of Boston. Another notable stop on the summer tour include a Sin City show at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena on Aug. 25. Tickets for select shows on the Twins of Evil Tour will be going on sale starting later this month on March 24, and can be purchased by clicking here.
The two have notably toured together in the past, with their last go-around taking place back in 2012, and as Consequence of Sound reports, didn’t run as smoothly as everyone had hoped. The two well-known rockers appeared to have sworn to play nice this time around, and will hopefully leave the dark and dirty rhetoric to their lyrics rather than on-stage banter.
Manson recently released his 10th studio album this past October with Heaven Upside Down. The music video for the album’s second single, “Kill4Me,” includes a cameo from another makeup-loving rocker named Johnny Depp, and can be watched in all its NSFW glory above. Metal fans today are probably more aware of Zombie's work thanks to his contributions to the horror movie genre, but the 53-year-old rocker is still a relevant name on hard rock festival posters each summer.
