Last night Jan. 18 Marilyn Manson kicked off his 2013 North American winter tour in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at The Rave and played for a crowd that just about filled the ballroom to capacity. The highly anticipated tour was a much bigger stage show than anything Manson did in 2012 and the light show was as big as they come, complete with confetti guns that rained down copious amounts of atmosphere and ambiance all over the wildly enthusiastic crowd. Fans shouted back the lyrics to every song as Manson controlled the stage with his epic brand of confident shock rock.
Manson brought out Butcher Babies to support the tour, and their no holds barred brand of metal was a perfect fit to open the show. Butcher Babies recently signed a record deal with Century Media and will release their debut CD this summer. Manson Played for a little more than an hour and touched upon his hits, old and new, and some fan favorite cover songs. "Dope Show," "Slo-Mo-Tion," "Personal Jesus," and "Sweet Dreams" seemed to be the tracks that fans especially reacted to and Manson saved "Beautiful People" for the encore.
