Marilyn Manson Tickets for Sale
Marilyn Manson is indeed on tour again in 2013, splitting time as a co-headliner and as a headliner. He will be co-headlining with Alice Cooper on the Shock Therapy Tour, which is a chance to see the Godfather of Shock Rock with the man who perhaps perfected the art form in the 1990s. This tour will last the month of June through the very beginning of July. Marilyn Manson tickets will then be available after the shock therapy has ended, as he takes to the road to perform 14 solo concerts.
The tours come without any other motivation than to play live. There is no new album in the works and his last album, Born Villain, was released last summer. This means that a few songs from the new album will be included in the song list, but the majority of the songs performed will be the beloved hits. This means the man/stage persona will be performing live renditions of “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” and “The Beautiful People”.
Marilyn Manson is the stage name for Brian Warner, a man who has made a career by embracing the dark side after growing up in a very religious household. After attending a Christian high school and going to college to study art, Warner discovered an interest in both journalism and music. He then began as a music journalist, writing for the 25th Parallel. Ultimately, he would move from writing about music to making music.
He created a persona by juxtaposing two American icons. For his first name he chose Marilyn Monroe and for his second he chose famed-murderer and psychopath Charles Manson. Thus began the life of Marilyn Manson. At first he was a part of Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids. Shortening the name of the group to his stage name, the band had begun to cultivate a cult following. Included in this cult following was the extremely influential industrial rock artist Trent Reznor. Suddenly, thanks to this kind of exposure, this small and mid-level club act hit it big and became a controversial force in the mainstream.
Marilyn Manson’s first big hit was Antichrist Superstar, his second studio album. The 1996 recording included the insanely popular cover of “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” and the big follow-up single “The Beautiful People”.
Though Mechanical Animals, Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death), and The Golden Age of Grotesque each became certified internationally, they could not equal the popularity of the breakthrough album. Marilyn Manson tickets continued to sell as well though. By then, he had found his place in the music industry. He thrived when he put on a show to be seen live, where controlling the experience on the stage allowed him to explore his artistry.
Since that last album mentioned (which came out in 2003), Manson has continued to release albums and to tour. He is not nearly as controversial a popular figure as he used to be, but neither has he become commonplace. Marilyn still has his dedicated fan base and he rewards them with a show that still ranks amongst the most impressive live concerts in the 21st century.
