Rob Zombie called into The Gater 98.7 yesterday to talk to Tyson about his new movie The Lords of Salem, his current tour, the new album which was finished up earlier in the year and to which he teases that there is a title – but he’s not telling – and fields some fan questions that were sent in to the station.

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. Veteran shock rocker Marilyn Manson paired up with horror aficionado Rob Zombie to bring a stunning, emphatic close to the concert season at DTE Energy Music Theatre on Friday October 12th…..with terror master Rob Zombie storming forth for his set from a giant mechanical creature, harking back to the days when metal bands put on a true kick ass stage show.

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.
To listen to Rob explain why the decision was taken

Twins of Evil Tour: Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson at 1STBANK Center, 10/02/12 By Tom Murphy
Before Rob Zombie went on, a huge drape with the image of King Kong on the front blocked us from seeing the set change and yet provided a compelling image from the stage when nothing else was going on. Which was much appreciated. (more…)
Ahead of the Twins of Evil hitting Topeka (Thurs 4 Oct), Rob Zombie sat down to have a chat with Lawrence.com where he speaks about his promise to bring an “epic show”, how music and movie work is a perfect balance for each other, and much more.
Rob Zombie promises epic theatrics in upcoming Topeka show By Mike Krings
It’s hard work being this evil.
Veteran rocker and horror filmmaker Rob Zombie has bounced back and forth between recording, touring and making movies for 20 years now, finding his own brand of success in two endeavors that have each burned out more than a few creative minds. (more…)
Rob Zombie has been busy this year. He has a new movie coming, he has released a remix album and he has also been in the studio recording a new album. Couple that with a tour with Megadeth earlier this year and now a co-headliner with Marilyn Manson which kicks off this Friday (28 September).
The Phoenix New Times Blog caught up with Rob a few days ago and asked him about his new record, touring with Manson and girls in the crowd at his shows. Enjoy!
Rob Zombie on His New Record, New Movie, and Why Metal Shows Need Girls By Lauren Wise
Rob Zombie isn’t out to terrify you. He’s out to blow your mind. He holds a number of titles: director, artist, musician, actor, writer, lover, and freak show.
And everything he does is loaded up with theatrics, subtle intelligence, and aggression. (more…)
It is just two days until the Twins of Evil hits the road. Preparations have been made, props are in transit and you can hear all across the land the faint chant of “Zombie, Zombie, Zombie”. In the run up to the tour, Denver’s Westword Blog, caught up with Rob as he was making his way to check out props for the show. Enjoy the interview!
Rob Zombie on Pee-wee’s Playhouse, and how he’s not on tour to party and to fuck around By Tom Murphy
Rob Zombie originally came to prominence with his first band, White Zombie. With a penchant for campy horror imagery and music that was the perfect mutant blend of an industrial aesthetic with trashy metal and punk, White Zombie was one in a handful of bands that crossed the alternative-rock world and the metal world at a time when the former was going out of vogue. (more…)
J-Devil (aka Korn’s frontman Jonathan Davis) will be replaced on the Twins of Evil tour with Slipknot’s Sid Wilson, after doctors ordered Davis to take time out for exhaustion. The decision was announced in an official statement;
“JDevil will no longer be able to join Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson on their co-headlining Twins Of Evil Tour this October. Due to exhaustion from his recent eight week overseas tour with KORN, Jonathan’s doctors have ordered him to refrain from any travel and performing for the next few weeks while he recuperates. We got this from management: ‘Jonathan is really bummed right now and regrets having to disappoint anyone, especially his fans and his good friends Marilyn Manson and Rob.’ We’ll keep you updated, everyone expects he’ll be back on track soon.”
We wish him all the best in recovering and welcome Sid Wilson on the tour.
With just days to go until the Twins of Evil tour starts, Rob Zombie has spoken to The Topeka Capital Journal (CJOnline) about the tour, whether he watches his own movies and a lot more besides. Enjoy!
Expo-bound Rob Zombie talks screen, stage by Bill Blankenship
Perhaps it is because Rob Zombie the rock star gets plenty of crowd feedback from the concert stage that Rob Zombie the filmmaker doesn’t feel compelled to sneak into the back of theaters to secretly gauge audience reaction. (more…)

Check out the fantastic shots from photographer David Turcotte of The Full Frame, who chronicled the show on May 11 at the PNC Bank Arts Center.
You can see the full portfolio of this shoot at http://thefullframe.org/2012/05/15/rob-zombie/
As David notes about the shoot and the show:
Unlike the simple and straight forward stage of openers Megadeth, Rob Zombie pulled all the stops with elaborate pyrotechnics, giant risers and backdrops. Between the skeleton mic stands, projected visuals and motorized monsters on stage, there wasn’t a dull moment in trying to capture the action provided by Rob Zombie and Co. Even the detail of Rob Zombie’s costume was something of a spectacle if you look closely enough.
Lighting was as expected…wild! There was flames, hard washes of green and red, and lots of fog.
With just a few weeks to go until Rob Zombie hits the stage with John 5, Piggy D and Ginger Fish at 2012′s Rock on the Range, performance times have now been revealed, so you can know exactly what time you need to be front and center at the stage performance of the night!
Rob Zombie will be on the Monster Main Stage on Sunday May 20 at 9:45 pm as the headlining act that night.
