Slayer and Marilyn Manson are going to be touring together, starting July 25th. Can Marilyn Manson hang with the likes of Kerry King and company? We soon shall see.
Since both of these acts are way different and in their own class of goth/rock versus speed metal. Slayer will be taking the stage first, followed by Manson.
Here, Kerry King talks about the tour and the likely event that Slayer fans will be exiting stage left when Marilyn Manson comes out with a goofy song:
“It’s definitely going to be weird,” he admitted. “My whole thing is, it depends on what Manson plays, whether our kids stay or not. If he comes out and plays ‘Tainted Love,’ half the place is going to leave. No offense to Manson â€” I’m just saying what’s up. I want him to come out and kick ass, because I’m an old-school fan. He can succeed on this tour, if he chooses the right set.”
I figure the Manson crowd is a little goth rock and metal combined, but Slayer has some hardcore fans. How can they mosh? We will soon find out.
