The United Kingdom better get ready for the shock rocker! Marilyn Manson just announced that he will be heading to Great Britain for an exclusive, limited five date tour. The cities being covered by the Anti-Christ Superstar include Glasgow, London, Manchester, Wolverhampton and Newport. Tickets will be going on sale starting May 19, though the shows are going to be held at the end of the year, in December.
This comes just days after Marilyn Manson announced the name for his upcoming tenth studio album, Heaven Upside Down. Initially, he had named the album Say10, in honour of his tenth full-length album, and his favorite mythical character. The album was expected to be released on Valentine’s Day this year, but due to unknown reasons, that has duly been postponed. However, Manson has been teasing fans, posting short snippets of videos that look like his forthcoming work.
Marilyn Manson’s last album was The Pale Emperor, released back in 2015, that received mostly positive reviews. In an interview, the rocker said, “It’s [Heaven Upside Down] not very much in any way like The Pale Emperor. The people who have heard the new songs said it reminded them of Antichrist Superstar and Mechanical Animals – but with a new, different approach.”
“It’s pretty violent in its nature for some reason. It’s not emotional in the same way. It’s got a chip on its shoulder. I can’t wait for people to hear it. I think they’re going to be quite surprised.”
Manson has been keeping himself busy before the release of Heaven Upside Down. He will next appear as a sinister hitman in the film Let Me Make You A Martyr and those who have seen the trailer have come back with goosebumps.
