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.
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…)
On October 1 the Twins of Evil hit Salt Lake City for another show of sounds, sights and extremities. Before the show both artists sat down to chat with the Salt Lake Tribune to discuss their work, staging and more.
Brian Hugh Warner — better known as Marilyn Manson — is now 43, and many dismiss him as a musician past his expiration date.
But when Manson’s album “Born Villain” was released in May, it debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard album chart and broke iTunes’ Top 10 album lists in 22 countries.
Those numbers prove that Manson, who will headline the “Twins of Evil” tour with Rob Zombie on Monday, remains a commercial force. (more…)
The reviews are coming in. Check this great one from ArtistDirect.

Rob Zombie on His New Record, New Movie, and Why Metal Shows Need Girls By Lauren Wise

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!

My Roots: Rob Zombie by Leslie Michele Derrough
Rob Zombie is a no-bullshit visionary. While leading White Zombie on a gory-fun trail through the rock & roll hemisphere, he carved up electrifying stage productions and music videos filled with fluorescently vivid images of the macabre while playing grungily catchy tunes; something that he continues to do with his solo band. Throwing his hat into the movie making business in 2003 with House Of A 1000 Corpses, Zombie found himself in a whole new world with more challenges for his creative brain. (more…)

Revelation: Rob Zombie is a neat guy. And not just in that platinum selling/Grammy nominated/re-invented horror movies/upkeeps amazing dreadlocks kind of way. Rob Zombie is literally a neat guy. “I don’t like clutter,” he divulges during a recent phone call. In fact the house he shares with Sheri Moon, his wife and oft-featured actress in his slew of directorial curveballs, is “super sparse … I don’t like shit everywhere. I like being organized and super particular.”
