Not long ago, it was announced that Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie revived their “Twins of Evil” tour, and “The Second Coming” is just around the corner. Presale tickets for the Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie Twins of Evil: The Second Coming Tour went on sale last March, but tickets are now available for the series of concerts at Ticketmaster. The first Twins of Evil Tour occurred in 2012, but as Digital Spy reported, the event ended up causing some temporary friction between the shock rockers.
Reportedly, Manson started his set late for the show at Michigan’s DTE Music Theatre on October 12, 2012. He was forced to end his performance early because of his tardiness, and Marilyn told the live audience, as Digital Spy documented, he was “going to beat Zombie’s a*s.” In return, Rob Zombie cursed the other shock rocker throughout his set and continuously shouted “Fu*k you Marilyn Manson” while performing Alice Cooper’s “School’s Out.”
Rob Zombie later issued a statement through a past Facebook post that Digital Spy documented.
“Unfortunately, things turned ugly backstage. Why? I don’t know, but for some reason our touring partner decided to end his set by blaming me for something that I had nothing to do with and screaming he was going to ‘kick Rob Zombie’s a*s as soon as he got off stage.’
“Go figure. I was backstage hanging, watching the show thinking, ‘Hey this is gonna be a great night,’ when suddenly he starts screaming threats. So strange. I don’t get it…It’s all good. No one would f**k with someone’s show. It is ridiculous.”
While this was entertaining drama for some, many fans of the duo were disappointed that it seemed they would never tour together again, but thankfully, that’s not the case. As RollingStone reported, while speaking to Howard Stern in 2014, Rob Zombie called the whole thing stupid and said he would consider touring with Manson again, and thus, we have their current project. As seen in the video below, the two rockers are clearly getting along as they discuss the first time they heard each other’s music.
Warning: The video below has some strong language.
