Last summer, there were rumors that Avril Lavigne and Marilyn Manson were dating. Those rumors were humorously thwarted by Manson and the world soon found out that it was Nickelback's Chad Kroeger and not Manson that the pop singer had her eyes on. However, there was something to that pairing with Manson -- something musical.
The word "paparazzi" comes from an Italian term referring to the irritating buzzing noise made by insects, most notably, the mosquito. And what's one way to get rid of mosquitos? A massive cloud of smoke … and this is exactly the tactic used by rock icon Marilyn Manson against the paparazzi as the musician left a premiere party for the new film 'Spring Breakers.'
There are an incredible amount of hard rock and metal music festivals held worldwide as the summer season stretches from May to September. There's Mayhem, Rock on the Range, Reading, Leeds, Download, Hellfest, Wacken and Bloodstock, just to name a few. But for connoisseurs of punk rock who are looking for a major festival, an incredible lineup has just been put together for the 2013 Amnesia Rockfest in Quebec, Canada, with some hard rock and metal sprinkled in, as well.
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.
Shock rock icons Marilyn Manson and Alice Cooper are apparently heading out on tour together sometime in 2013. In a possible premature move by someone at Alice Cooper's camp, a poster of a 'Masters of Madness: Shock Therapy Tour' baring the faces of the two rock stars has been unveiled within Cooper's official website.
Marilyn Manson has been known to heighten the shock value at shows, but what happens when the "shock" is unintentional? During a show in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, on Wednesday night (Feb. 6), Manson collapsed and vomited onstage in the midst of the fan-favorite track 'The Beautiful People.'
