Marilyn Manson

Merriweather Post Pavilion | 6/17/13

Marilyn Manson has had a long and controversial music career to say the least. His albums and shows have been called profane, filth, crap and he was even accused of being partially to blame for the Columbine High School shootings in 1999. Although a casual fan I was still excited to get to see him live. The show featured an excellent set list of Manson classics but to me it lacked energy. Manson looked listless and almost drunk at times. His current record Born Villian has gotten solid reviews but I think it's good but not great. Manson has a reputation of providing a big theatrical show and it wasn't delivered. I still sang along with the songs and I see why he has declined in popularity since being known as "The Anti-Christ Superstar."

Marilyn Manson played with Gwar and Alice Cooper at this concert, known as The Masters of Madness Tour.
