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.

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…)

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.

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!

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…)
