According to MLive.com, MARILYN MANSON and ROB ZOMBIE engaged in a war of words Friday night (October 12) at the the ninth stop of their 36-city “Twins Of Evil” tour at DTE Energy Music Theater in Clarkston, Michigan.
Manson reportedly accused Rob Zombie of cutting Marilyn‘s set short, telling the crowd, “I’m going to kick his ass.”
Zombie also addressed the feud during his 90-minute performance, telling the audience, “Some tours just don’t go [expletive] together” and making it clear that he was tired of Manson‘s “rock star [expletive].” He also fired more verbal shots at Manson while paying homage to Alice Cooper with a cover of Cooper‘s classic “School’s Out” (see video below), dedicating the song to “the only real shock rocker there ever was, not some punk-ass bitch, Alice Cooper.”
“[Bleep] you Marilyn Manson!,” Zombie reportedly yelled several times, along with other choice words including “suck it, Marilyn Manson!” He also called Manson “Brian,” referring to Marilyn‘s birth name, Brian Warner.
Manson implied on Twitter that Zombie had also cut Marilyn‘s set short Thursday night in Rosemont, Illinois, writing, “Sorry to Chicago for not getting to play ‘Beautiful People’. You can sing it in between Zombie songs, his band has already played it.”
Zombie himself took to his Facebook page earlier today to “clear up the rumors flying around.” He wrote, “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 just the way it works, that is the way it always works. There is no evil plan going on. It is all complete nonsense.”
