Here’s a review from the show in Stockholm, by Music and Festival Reviews.  Enjoy

Rob Zombie…did everything right this evening. From opener “Jesus Frankenstein” to the encore “Dragula”, he showed everybody how a true professional works an arena. Zombie’s stage rap was both funny and crowd pleasing. His band, which consists of both John 5 (guitar) and Ginger Fish (drums) who used to play with Manson, together with bassist Piggy D, who really wants to be Nikki Sixx, were tight and put on a great performance….

The sound was lots better and his show looked very expensive, with shitloads of screens and monsters running around the stage. Zombie also knows how to entertain a crowd while a dull guitar solo takes place. He simply ran out in the audience and up the stairs where people were seated. Zombie’s songs are perfect for a live situation, they’re all groovy, heavy, melodic and even danceable and it’s hard to both sit and stand still when those are played. And he did play all of the songs we all wanted to hear. “Superbeast”, “Living Dead Girl”, “Meet The Creeper”, “Mars Needs Women” and “Scum Of The Earth”and of course “More Human Than Human” and “Thunder Kiss ’65″ by his former band White Zombie.  The only negative thing I can think of is why he had to play a completely useless cover of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”. The cover of Alice Cooper’s “School’s Out” feels a bit more natural as The Coop is one of Zombie’s big heroes, but I would have preferred two more original Zombie tunes instead. “Spookshow Baby” and “Feel So Numb”, maybe?
