SLAYER and MARILYN MANSON team up for co-headlining summer tour


In a tour that will make your grandmother and local priest piss their pants, representatives for both SLAYER and MARILYN MANSON have announced that the two will join together for the unholiest of summer tours. Plans are for the tour to play some twenty-five cities and wrap up early September on the West Coast. A full, confirmed schedule will be announced shortly.

SLAYER and MARILYN MANSON 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 9th), Greenfield Festival in Sweden (June 15th), and Stockholm’s Metaltown Festival (June 30th).

MARILYN MANSON just wrapped up work on his upcoming June release to be titled, “Eat Me, Drink Me,” which Rolling Stone magazine anticipates as “epic.” Voted “Best Band in the World” by Kerrang! magazine, the army of noise behind MARILYN MANSON’s bitterness is at once raw and massive when witnessing him live – “rousing the crowd with focuses ardor,” states the New York Times.

Celebrating their 26th year together, the always-uncompromising 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” – debuting at #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.”
