‘Evil’ Theatrics At Their Finest For Rob Zombie And Marilyn Manson Concert

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

Image above by Nick Caito

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…)

Spookshow Baby!  Rob Zombie Cannibalizes Detroit by Adam O’Connor

The thing about Rob Zombie that many people seem not to understand is that – aside from having sold upwards of 15 million albums as a living dead rock star of epic proportion over the past quarter-century and helmed numerous films successfully – he’s really just a dude. Granted, his legal surname actually is Zombie, and yes, he utilizes every ghoulish trick, antic and mind-blowing visual and aural stunt imaginable during his live permormances – certainly providing one of the most incredibly dynamic and entertaining live shows of any modern musician (more…)

Whether rocking the stage with his trademark metal/industrial kerrang or getting his slasher ya-ya’s out on film, one look, one listen and you know it’s Zombie. (more…)
