DJ/ That Metal Show co-host Eddie Trunk was apparently the first to let word about the tour slip via tweet. “@marilynmanson will be touring with Rob Zombie this Fall in the US. Should be awesome bill. Thanks 2 Manson & his crew 4 the great hospitality,” Trunk said in a tweet that has since been removed from his account. Neither Manson or Zombie have commented on the rumors/Trunk’s slip.
However, the rumored tour’s timeline makes a lot of sense. Manson has just released his new album Born Villain, while Zombie will be entering the studio in June following his tour with Megadeth. Making this tour even more interesting is the fact that half of Zombie’s current band (guitarist John 5 and drummer Ginger Fish) used to play with Manson. Although fans shouldn’t expect any tension, since John 5 mentioned in a recent interview with us that he has no hard feelings for “The Beautiful People” singer.
But of course, since there’s no official confirmation regarding this tour, take this with a grain of salt. With that said, a Manson/ Zombie touring package would indeed be an interesting one to see.
