Slayer and Marilyn Manson Announce Co-Headlining Tour
Slayer and Marilyn Manson have announced that they will co-headline a North American major-market summer tour, set to kick off July 25 on the east coast. Plans are for the tour to play approximately 25 cities, ending in early September on the west coast. A full, confirmed schedule will be announced shortly.
Manson and Slayer will each play full sets, and two support bands, yet to be determined, will open all shows. Just prior to the American trek, both Manson and Slayer will be on tour throughout Europe, sharing the stage at three European festivals—the U.K.’s Download Festival at Donington (June 9), Greenfield Festival in Sweden (June 15) and Stockholm's Metaltown Festival (June 30).
Marilyn Manson recently completed work on his upcoming June release, to be titled, Eat Me, Drink Me, which Rolling Stone magazine anticipates as “epic.” Celebrating their 26th year together, Slayer was just named "Best Live Band" in Spin's 2006 Readers Poll, and picked up their first Grammy Award last month for "Best Metal Performance." Their latest album, Christ Illusion—which debuted at No. 5 on Billboard's Albums Chart—takes on the U.S. Government about the war in Iraq, prompting one newspaper to speculate, "If Thomas Jefferson were alive today, he undoubtedly would be listening to Slayer."
