Marilyn Manson checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace on Wednesday (January 9) after posting tour dates to the U.S. leg of his tour, which will now feature a reunion with Twiggy Ramirez, who left Manson in May 2002 over creative differences that were fracturing their friendship. The news means Tim Skold is the odd man out, though the permanence of the switch isn’t completely defined. The blog reads:
The duo that started it all, are back together to finish where they left off. The two who co-wrote Antichrist Superstar, Mechanical Animals, and Holywood will be sharing the stage once again.
Joining Manson and Twiggy onstage for the U.S. leg of the Rape of the World Tour will be Chris Vrenna, Rob Holliday, and Ginger Fish. Tim Skold has amicably split with Manson, but future collaborations aren’t being ruled out between the two.
Expectations for the upcoming tour are best described by quoting one of Manson’s most infamous lyrics, “Everyone will suffer now”. Looks like the sh** is gonna hit the FANS.
