Will be there!!! Can't wait!!! been waiting since 2009 for this day!

Manson101
02-15-2012, 10:00 AM
I know he said he's going to be doing a lot of Antichrist. and 1 or 2 new songs. I hope he digs into Eat me Drink me and high end of low. Mainly because when he toured US in 09' it was Mayhem fest, so we never got a high end of low tour like he toured other countries. Either way, I'll be front row, and been waiting to see him for 3 years! I know he will blow my mind!

But I don't want to miss out on the experience of there not being a baracade plus 5 security dudes between me and the stage haha.
Also, I'm sure this is THE dumbest question ever, but there's stuff to do around HOB and Showboat after the concert, right? I've never been there before but I know AC is supposed to be like a tiny vegas.

For those of you who don't know:

Party Pit VIP seats are sold out for one.

2) they get you early entrance into venue (get in earlier than contest winners, regular ticket buyers, or even passes)
3) closest to the stage
4) it's roped off (so regular GA ticket holders will be behind this pit)
5) there's 2 private bar areas inside so you don't have to leave your spot to get a drink

UGH WHY didn't i know this before i bought my GA ticket.

I'm going to go buy a party pit ticket off of stub hub. Except stub hub is dumb and only sells things in quantities larger than 1, so I guess I'm buying two.

Call the hotel ? ha or you can book online. If you book it'll be a bit cheaper, but with it being AC, the hotels and casinos are big, and I feel more comfortable paying a few bucks extra to talk to someone... for me i feel safer getting the confirmation ear to ear.

ive stayed in ac before at a few of the hotels, i was just wondering where everyone was staying.

I can't really rush to this one like I am for NY and Montclair because I've never driven to AC and I want to take my time driving without waking up at like 5am. I figure having a party pit ticket (or rather, 2 party pit tickets and 1 GA ticket lmao) will help with getting in earlier, and I guess I don't really neeeeeed to be one of the first people in line because I will have been for the previous 2 shows. #logic

For NY I'll probably be there at some godawful time like 8 or 9 am. My parents/friends from high school who never moved live like 5 minutes away from the venue so I'm making them bring me food and such, as they point and laugh at me for waiting in like for like 12 hours.

I'm hoping to do the same thing in Montclair but I need to look at NJ transit times and routes a bit more closely.

He's naturally a commanding stage presence but, yeah, there's always things the observer can see that aren't always easy to see when you're inside the box. Speaking of observing, can anyone see what he's doing when he wanders over to Lindsay during The Dope Show?

Youtube does not do this tour justice...don't judge from it, go if you get a chance. The band rocked out hard core the whole time and Manson gave 100% and sounded excellent. I had such a great time and the energy up front was amazing.

Pistol Whipped sounded so cool live and I dug his smoke shooter gun thing. Could have done with a better opening song than Hey Cruel World but it was still killer and a pretty solid set list, no changes in songs from other shows.


The Pretty Reckless was ehhh, Taylor is hot but that's all I got out of it.

Thank you Haz, you make all of our wishes come true.But, to be honest with you guys, I'm a bit upset that Manson waived the bible in the air like a kid playing then THREW IT BACK and he didn't rip it or burn it as someone already did the job for him.It's that either Manson is too peaceful to rip it or he didn't have a lighter,or Manson was just very lazy and had no brainer for it.Please HAZ, give Manson a lighter next time,make the show more interesting dude.

is burning a [fake/prop] bible really all that important? took not one thing away from my enjoyment of both shows i went to.....

Met feedyourhead22 and rocked out for this show. Crowd was a MONSTER; the energy in the room was incredible, even from the folks up in the balcony. My ribs are bruised from the rail for sure, but it was totally worth it.

To all you guys and gals who roughed it in that pit, I salute you. So much more intense than the Montclair show.

As for Manson, what can I say? The band, the man, the spectacle –– guys, you have to be there to appreciate it. He's on fire. His voice is perfection –– PERFECTION. I'm still reeling from the energy he's giving off. Our Born Villain is born again.

And as for this "theatrics" debate –– I'd take this hard-rocking, head-banging, scream-of-death Manson over a schtick burning bible any day.

I also commented on the energy in the room, glad it wasn't just me that felt it...good stuff.

The crowds at these shows have been fucking RAVENOUS and RABID, it is truly fucking awesome to behold the synergistic dynamism reverberating from the stage to the crowd and right fucking back at the stage.

A series of unfortunate incidents prevented me from making it to the Pittsburgh show I had a ticket for (GODFUCKINGDAMNIT), but we'll call it even since the night before in Atlantic City was THE TIME OF MY LIFE!!!

No, seriously, I totally almost died that day before the show.

I went to a punk show in NYC with a pal and bled like crazy when I cut myself but just applied pressure to my arm and rocked out one-handed till the show was over. Left a fucking PUDDLE of blood right on the front of the stage where I'd been standing! My pal got cut too (in a totally unrelated incident at the same show), so we went to the Coney Island Hospital for him to get a couple stitches, but I refused medical care since I'm uninsured and broke and my two fresh gashes had stopped bleeding well before we even arrived at the E.R.

Then I went to bed.

Then a couple hours later I woke up utterly DRENCHED in blood. My shirt. My pants. The comforter. The sheets. The foam mattress pad. The mattress itself. Holy FUCK it was SO much blood. I stumbled dizzily to the bathroom and discovered one of my tiny new wounds was spewing blood like the fucking Niagara Falls, ffs. While holding it over the sink I was forced to drop to one knee to maintain consciousness before swiveling around to sit on the toilet cover rather than simply completely collapsing. Which was rather unfortunate since the compound trauma of my injuries and hangover suddenly had me vomiting everywhere else while the sink and toilet were both otherwise occupied. Apparently I made enough of a ruckus that my pals woke up and came to investigate only to find pools of vomit and blood streaming out from under the bathroom door, so using a full-size towel as a bandage/tourniquet I gratefully accepted a ride back to the hospital and spent the rest of the morning getting the stitches I'd evidently needed all along. Thankfully the staff had rotated since my last visit so I was spared the FULL brunt of my walk of shame. Good times!

Anyway, it was fucking BRUTAL. I've bled plenty in my time but this was a whole other scene. I'd guess I probably lost about HALF of my blood (pix and vidz forthcoming!)...not kidding or exaggerating in the slightest.

It's a bit humbling to realize that if I hadn't been nauseous enough to wake up in time in the first place I almost surely would have simply bled out and died in my sleep, lolfail.

BINGE DRINKING SAVED MY LIFE, MAN.

So after puking everything I'd eaten in the past day and several torturous hours in the E.R. not once but TWICE, we left straight for the show in a hurry at the last minute and I just had some water, Emergen-C, and a pack of peanuts from the hospital for some blood-and-plasma replenishing protein and went RIGHT into the pit like a feral goddamned animal. Which was, as stated, fucking PACKED and ROUGH and HOT and VIOLENT as FUCK.

LOVE IT.

I sneaked in a plastic bag with about 100 trimmed drinking straws plundered from Subway and rained them on the crowd like drugged-out confetti throughout "The Dope Show," something I'd always wanted to do.

Then during "Irresponsible Hate Anthem" I whipped out my full-size American flag and unfurled it as I pumped my fist in the air before Manson saw it waving violently to the beat and gestured for it, at which point I lobbed it right at him and he spent a goodly portion of the rest of song with it draped upon his shoulders and head like some kind of hooded cloak of playful quasi-patriotism.

And I'd be lying if I didn't admit that I was woozy as fuck and fighting off fainting for about the last quarter of the show, but I knew I had to make it to the end so goddamnit I just had to muscle through that shit because...

When "Antichrist Superstar" started I got my red, hardback Holy Bible out and got ready for action!

At the beginning of the second verse, I popped a stitch lifting the Bible overhead with my bad arm so I could shred the fuck out of it while tossing the pages in the air. Fucking WORTH IT. Manson took notice immediately and was signalling for me to throw it his way, but with the crowd piled on top of me and the book blocking my view of him I mistakenly thought all the people in the pit fucking with me just then were trying to snatch it away from me, but then I eventually realized they were merely helpfully pointing out to me Manson's clear request. Never one to let down my hero, I took aim and was probably just as shocked as anyone that it was a PERFECT shot right into his chest and arms, clearing the top of the podium but still low enough not to knock his teeth out. Fucking WIN.



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ND3dQp0qgHg

Rocked the fuck out like a barbaric fucking madman for the rest of the concert and pretty much dropped to the floor the minute the show was over and the crowd up front had dispersed enough to no longer support my weight, leaving myself utterly and completely spent and very much quite literally drained by the day from hell which ended in heaven.

While struggling not to pass out on the floor, I took the opportunity to collect some straws and confetti in an empty beer cup in an attempt to mask my weakness, and okay I was totally checking someone out from down there, lol, but from the concerned looks on the faces of everyone looking down at me it was pretty clear I'd failed utterly with my ruse. I had to pound all the water I could find and chug a fresh pack of Emergen-C while stripping off my soaked-through shirt then and there just to keep from completely losing consciousness. Which is, like, apparently against the house rules or something. Haha. After a few desperate and delirious minutes of fighting that off I was fucking BACK in the game, though. Takes more than THAT, motherfuckers! But okay, yeah...sorry, sir, I'll put my clothes back on now. Oh, the lulz.

Then at the afterparty Manson came right out and fistbumped me straight away for my efforts and introduced me to Lindsay with a joke about my undying Cub Scoutness while I briefly regaled them with my day's misadventures and we all LOL-ed about my absent Cub Scout attire bundled in a bag full of blood with the rest of my luggage. Haha, he's SO fucking great.

And that wasn't even the best part of the evening's awesomeness at hand, which held me absolutely rapt and spellbound by good company well after Manson's departure and far past the rising of the sun and into the afternoon hours.

I could barely even fucking stand for half the day before the show and immediately thereafter, but there was just NO defeating the unstoppable energy and the thrill of sharing such an unbelievably intense and fully-interactive Manson show in magical Atlantic City with such amazing friends.

Like I said.

THE TIME OF MY FUCKING LIFE.

Actually during tourniquet that kid was the only one manson touched.. and it was litlerally for 4 minutes straight haha and that wasn't his dad.

So I'm just bumping this because the video I posted in here WAY back in the day was yanked off YouTube shortly thereafter but suddenly popped back up a few days ago.

So I edited in the new link and HERE WE GO all over again!


The crowds at these shows have been fucking RAVENOUS and RABID, it is truly fucking awesome to behold the synergistic dynamism reverberating from the stage to the crowd and right fucking back at the stage.

A series of unfortunate incidents prevented me from making it to the Pittsburgh show I had a ticket for (GODFUCKINGDAMNIT), but we'll call it even since the night before in Atlantic City was THE TIME OF MY LIFE!!!

No, seriously, I totally almost died that day before the show.

I went to a punk show in NYC with a pal and bled like crazy when I cut myself but just applied pressure to my arm and rocked out one-handed till the show was over. Left a fucking PUDDLE of blood right on the front of the stage where I'd been standing! My pal got cut too (in a totally unrelated incident at the same show), so we went to the Coney Island Hospital for him to get a couple stitches, but I refused medical care since I'm uninsured and broke and my two fresh gashes had stopped bleeding well before we even arrived at the E.R.

Then I went to bed.

Then a couple hours later I woke up utterly DRENCHED in blood. My shirt. My pants. The comforter. The sheets. The foam mattress pad. The mattress itself. Holy FUCK it was SO much blood. I stumbled dizzily to the bathroom and discovered one of my tiny new wounds was spewing blood like the fucking Niagara Falls, ffs. While holding it over the sink I was forced to drop to one knee to maintain consciousness before swiveling around to sit on the toilet cover rather than simply completely collapsing. Which was rather unfortunate since the compound trauma of my injuries and hangover suddenly had me vomiting everywhere else while the sink and toilet were both otherwise occupied. Apparently I made enough of a ruckus that my pals woke up and came to investigate only to find pools of vomit and blood streaming out from under the bathroom door, so using a full-size towel as a bandage/tourniquet I gratefully accepted a ride back to the hospital and spent the rest of the morning getting the stitches I'd evidently needed all along. Thankfully the staff had rotated since my last visit so I was spared the FULL brunt of my walk of shame. Good times!

Anyway, it was fucking BRUTAL. I've bled plenty in my time but this was a whole other scene. I'd guess I probably lost about HALF of my blood (pix and vidz forthcoming!)...not kidding or exaggerating in the slightest.

It's a bit humbling to realize that if I hadn't been nauseous enough to wake up in time in the first place I almost surely would have simply bled out and died in my sleep, lolfail.

BINGE DRINKING SAVED MY LIFE, MAN.

So after puking everything I'd eaten in the past day and several torturous hours in the E.R. not once but TWICE, we left straight for the show in a hurry at the last minute and I just had some water, Emergen-C, and a pack of peanuts from the hospital for some blood-and-plasma replenishing protein and went RIGHT into the pit like a feral goddamned animal. Which was, as stated, fucking PACKED and ROUGH and HOT and VIOLENT as FUCK.

LOVE IT.

I sneaked in a plastic bag with about 100 trimmed drinking straws plundered from Subway and rained them on the crowd like drugged-out confetti throughout "The Dope Show," something I'd always wanted to do.

When "Antichrist Superstar" started I got my red, hardback Holy Bible out and got ready for action!

At the beginning of the second verse, I popped a stitch lifting the Bible overhead with my bad arm so I could shred the fuck out of it while tossing the pages in the air. Fucking WORTH IT.
