Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson brought their Twins of Evil: The Second Coming Tour to the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey, on Tuesday night (July 24th), each delivering a scorching set of macabre and evocative music.
Following opening act Deadly Apples’ set, Manson took the stage and kicked things off with “Irresponsible Hate Anthem” from his 1996 album Antichrist Superstar. He proceeded to perform such hits as “Disposable Teens”, “The Dope Show” and “The Beautiful People”, among newer songs like “Kill4Me” and “Say10” off his 2017 disc, Heaven Upside Down. He closed out the night with a cover of Gerard McMann’s “Cry Little Sister” from the soundtrack to The Lost Boys.
Zombie, who is working on a new album for 2019, then followed with a blistering set of his own, playing favorites like “Dragula”, “Living Dead Girl” and “Never Gonna Stop”. At one point, he brought out legendary KISS drummer Peter Criss, who said hello to the crowd and pumped his fist in the air.
As he’s been doing the entire tour, Manson joined Zombie for a cover of The Beatles’ “Helter Skelter”, which the pair recorded as a studio track prior to kicking off the trek.
The tour runs through an August 29th gig in Irvine, California, with tickets available for the remaining shows here.
