Rob Zombie vs Marilyn Manson - Tour Threatened as Fight Goes Public


Only nine dates into the 'Twins of Evil' tour it appears that Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson already hate each other.  According to, last night during the 'Twins of Evil' co-headlining show, at DTE Energy Music Theater in Clarkston, Michigan, Manson accused Zombie of cutting his set short.


While on stage Manson (Manson opened the show) brought the fight to the crowd announcing, "I'm going to kick his (Rob Zombie's) ass".  

From there Rob Zombie took the stage and told the crowd, "Some tours just don't fuckin' go together," also adding that Manson did nothing when he got off stage and made no move to 'kick his ass'.  Zombie did not stop there continuing throughout his set saying things like, how he's sick of Manson's "rock star shit" and that he hopes Manson enjoys the show because it would be his last (making reference to ending the current 36-city tour).  


But things really got good when Zombie did a cover a Alice Cooper's 'School's Out' filling it with derogatory comments, directed toward Manson, throughout the song.  Things like "fuck you Marilyn Manson!" and "suck it Marilyn Manson"


Apparently the beef started the night before when the band's tour stopped in Rosemont, Illinois. On Manson's Twitter page, the singer accused Zombie of cutting his set short on that night too, saying, "Sorry to Chicago for not getting to play "Beautiful People," Manson wrote. "You can sing it in between Zombie songs, his band has already played it."   


Earlier today Zombie posted this on his Facebook page, "Neither I nor anyone working for me made Manson cut his show short. It is a co-headliner and we both play the exact same set length every night. It is all very simple, but if one of us chooses to go on late for whatever reason, that time will have to come out of their set. That's just the way it works, that is the way it always works. There is no evil plan going on. It is all complete nonsense."


Later Rob Zombie posted a more complete explanation on his Facebook page: 


"As stupid as this all is, I feel I must clear things up a little better. First off, I want to thank all the fans who came out in the freezing cold in Detroit last night. It was a total blast as always.


Unfortunately things turned ugly backstage. Why? I don't know, but for some reason our touring partner decided to end his set by blaming me for something that I had nothing to do with and screaming he was going to "kick Rob Zombie's ass as soon as he got off stage".


Go figure. I was backstage hanging, watching the show thinking "hey this is gonna be a great night", when suddenly he starts screaming threats. So strange. I don't get it. Christ, I've known some of his crew for 20 fucking years and some of his crew used work for me. It's all good. No one would fuck with someone's show. It is ridiculous.


Well, of course I felt the need to respond to the " kick my ass remark". Who wouldn't? Although I wish I had kept it backstage and kept the fans out of it. It is all 4rd grade fight after school nonsense of which I have never dealt with on tour before. Co-headlining tours always go smooth because everything is cut 50/50 and I mean everything. No one fucks with anyone's show. It is even fucking Steven.


I've done it co-headlining tours many times before and have had no troubles. Not with Pantera, Slayer, Alice Cooper, Korn, Megadeth or anyone ever. So I didn't expect any troubles on this. It seemed like a great idea at the time.


But shit happens. Anyway, sorry to the fans who had to dealt with the embarrassing stupidity of it all. We are all there for the same reasons to give you the best show ever… that's it."
