Jesus Frankenstein kicked things off in gloriously fun fashion, massive screens around the stage firing off retro-horror imagery, a multi-limbed skeletal structure looming ominously over the crowd in front of a gigantic iron man structure, before Rob Zombie was suddenly roaming the stage, appearing like a long-dead hobo sent back from the underworld by Lucifer himself to whip the audience back into shape.

Manchester is known in the UK as the home of stalwarts such as Oasis and the infamous The Haçienda but on Wednesday it became the home – for one night – of evil – Twins of Evil style.
QRO Magazine reviewed the show and you can read the extract here and see images from the show by photographer Ian Pickles.
If Manson’s set verged on the over serious the same cannot be said of his partner in wickedness on the night, the gloriously over-the-top Rob Zombie. Having revitalized the Halloween franchise, Zombie now divides his time between music and filmmaking, but whichever he’s doing he seems to give it one hundred percent, and his set featured every horror trope in the playbook.

Zombie and Manson Twins of Evil Tour by Jeff Resta
You knew with Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson co-headlining the Twins of Evil Tour on Halloween night was going to be so wickedly awesome, but this show was mind-blowing. Often times when two top billing bands “co-headline” there is usually a noticeable difference in staging, lighting and even sound giving you the feeling that there is still a headliner! Not here. (more…)

Rob Zombie brings ‘Twins of Evil tour’ to Houston by Andrew Dansby
Rob Zombie’s recent and upcoming sinister urges include a remix album, a new solo record, a film that looks positively terrifying and an eerie commercial for a laundry detergent. Zombie’s work as a successful filmmaker and fright-metal recording artist didn’t quite eat up all his time, so he’s going back to doing one of the things he does best: putting on a really big show. (more…)

The Hartford Courant reviews the Mohegan Sun show for the ‘Twins Of Evil’ Tour.

At what point does it become okay for an artist to wear a shirt with their own name emblazoned on it? Do they need to be an international metal star? A renowned director? Or is it more the mentality of not caring, like one big middle finger saying “Yeah, my shirt says ‘Rob Motherf****n Zombie,’ and I don’t care” (it literally did).
It seems likely to be the last, but let’s face it. Rob Zombie, like his ‘Twin Of Evil’ Marilyn Manson, have carefully crafted stage personas. Horror metal theatrics were at their finest at Mohegan Sun for their co-headlining tour. Rotating for the top bill, Saturday night had Manson opening and Zombie on the top slot. (more…)

ROB ZOMBIE + MARILYN MANSON BRING ‘TWINS OF EVIL’ TOUR TO NEW YORK CITY by: Chuck Armstrong
Even though their tour stopped in New York City a couple of weeks shy of Halloween, the ‘Twins of Evil’ made fans feel like it was indeed All Hallow’s Eve. Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson put together two blistering sets at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom on Wednesday, Oct. 17. (more…)

Yes, yes, storm in a teacup as the Brits would say. Sod the gossip because the show goes on. Read this excellent review for the Youngstown Ohio show and don’t forget, tickets are still available in some places, and Golden Tickets too, so if you haven’t booked yet, what are you waiting for. Thanks to 98.5 WNCX for the review.
The resounding call of the Zombie has once again been answered last night at the Covelli Centre in Youngstown, Ohio. The “Twins of Evil” tour infiltrated the unsuspecting arena with Marilyn Manson and Slipknot’s #0, DJ Starscream, providing opening support for Rob Zombie who was at the helm of this metal madness. Without fail or disappointment, Rob Zombie delivered his sensuous onslaught with bombast and fervor.

What better way to close out the concert season at one of the most often top ranked music venues in the country than with a chilly October night featuring two of the most chilling and thematic acts touring this year.

As many of you are aware, especially for those who had tickets to the show, Rob Zombie had to cancel the October 6 show in Little Rock due to safety concerns, not only for himself and the band and the crew, but importantly for his fans. The cancellation was due to weather conditions that not only made it dangerous to set up the stage for the show but also conditions that the fans would have been watching the show in. Rob Zombie phoned local radio station 100.3 The Edge to explain the position reached and to let everyone know the show had been rescheduled to October 29. All tickets will be honored. Information will be going up on the main tour page soon.
