Marilyn Manson Scares Up Mayhem, Memories In NYC; Plus Photos

By |

Though it's the second round of Marilyn Manson's "Rape of the World" tour, the current leg might as well be dubbed the "Return of Twiggy" tour. Save for a handful of Tim Skold-era tunes, the second of Manson's two nights at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom was a celebration of the band's screechy (Antichrist Superstar) and glam (Mechanical Animals) days. The pit churned to "Disposable Teens" and stood at attention for a combination of "Coma White" and "Coma Black," complete with falling snow. A particularly animated performance from re-energized Manson and the return of prodigal son Twiggy Ramirez (who Manson called "my best friend") made memories of the last two absinthe-soaked records vanish, and served as a visceral reminder of why people were so scared in the first place.
