Marilyn Manson & Rob Zombie Coming To Houston For Halloween

And just like that, your Halloween festivities just got all the more freakier with the announcement that gruesome twosome Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie are coming to Houston on October 30.

Gross, that means Halloween is on a Wednesday.

The concert at Reliant Arena will be the first Bayou City date from Zombie since late 2009, with Manson just coming off a Houston stop back in early May. The aptly-named "Twins of Evil" tour wraps up the next day, October 31, in Dallas.

Funny enough, Zombie's touring band features former Manson band members John 5 on guitar and Ginger Fish on drums. With Twiggy Ramirez now long reinstalled in the Manson camp for a few years now, this means you can see the classic Manson lineup onstage, but not together. Sorta.

Best of all, opening many dates on the tour (including Houston) is Korn front man Jonathan Davis' dubstep DJ altar ego, "J Devil."

"I like to think of JDevil as the 'anti-christ' of EDM," Manson says in the press release announcing the tour. "To play alongside Zombie and Manson is going to be a fucking sinister night all around, and an unbelievable theatrical experience. I can't wait."

Neither can we. See either www.marilynmanson.com or www.robzombie.com for ticket info.
