Marilyn Manson and Alice Cooper have delivered their own envelope pushing brands of entertainment since busting out of the womb so it seemed only fitting and long overdue that the dastardly duo team up for one massive shot of shock dubbed the ‘Monsters of Madness: Shock Therapy’ tour, making a stop in Uncasville, Conn., at the Mohegan Sun Arena on Friday (June 21).
Marilyn Manson and Alice Cooper kicked off their 'Masters of Madness' tour on June 1 in Albuquerque, N.M. The horrorshow featured full sets from both shock rock icons, but the crowd was treated to a unique duet as the pair shared the stage for Alice Cooper's classic anthem 'I'm Eighteen' (watch above).
It should be quite a summer this year with Alice Cooper -- the original shock rocker -- and Marilyn Manson -- his modern-day equivalent -- teaming up on tour together. Their partnership took them to the Revolver Golden Gods Black Carpet and we were able to speak with both musicians on a variety of topics, including stalkers, dangerous stage props and, of course, their mutual admiration for each other ahead of this summer's 'Masters of Madness' tour.
Almost exactly one year ago to the day, a storage facility which houses the Alice Cooper Archives was broken into. A number of items were stolen such as a large quantity of vinyl records, the original sculpture used to create Cooper's 'Hey Stoopid' album cover and perhaps most importantly, a John Richmond jacket which was worn by Cooper during his iconic cameo in 'Wayne's World.' Luckily for Cooper, one year after the burglary, the jacket has been found!
The rumors are true! Marilyn Manson has officially confirmed that he will be touring this summer with the original shock rocker Alice Cooper. Though a full itinerary has yet to be unveiled, Manson announced today (March 8) via his website that the trek is definitely happening along with revealing three tour dates.
