Are you ready for some metal, Mankato? Music fans up north better sharpen up their devil horns because Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie are bringing their co-headlining Twins of Evil tour to our highly corruptible state. Why this tour is skipping the Twin Cities--the tour's name would be apt for some great crossover marketing--in favor of a much smaller music market is anyone's guess, but fans of the heavy stuff up in Mankato certainly won't be complaining. Uptight conservatives in the area could be.
So, Manson and Zombie will be at the 8,200-capacity Verizon Wireless Center in Mankato on October 9.
Rob Zombie seems pretty excited that this tour has finally materialized. "Finally! Why did the most obvious tour take so long to happen? Who knows? Who cares? It's happening now. 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."

And Marilyn Manson is equally as interested in combining the musical mayhem of the two confrontational artists. "I have sympathy for the Whore of Babylon that gave birth to these twins of evil, and this abomination of a tour. There is no babysitter, and there is no repairing her womb. If Rob Zombie doesn't fuck you up, then I surely will. Hide all drugs and firearms ... I'm coming to town."
In addition to Manson and Zombie, J Devil, the DJ alter-ego of Korn frontman Jonathan Davis, is coming along for the tour to add to the festivities with his own twisted brand of musical chaos.
The tour promises to be a feast for the senses, both visually and aurally. Zombie promises to bring an "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." Who cares what the hell the music actually sounds like with those type of wild visuals there to both entertain and haunt you.
