I'm going to this show! I just decided today that I wanted to go and, hey, tickets were still available so why not? :)

I plan on taking photos if I'm not too far away. I'm not sure what the seating arrangement will be like as I've never been to this venue before so I can't guarantee if I'll have anything decent enough quality to share. I'm in the front row of the reserved seating so I should be able to get at least something. Anyway, I'm pretty excited to see both bands~

I just got back! I think the setlist was the same as the other shows (I'm bad with remembering setlists) except they played Coma White instead of Tourniquet. It was really amazing. I'll give a better summary of the show later, I need to settle and look through photos first.

The venue was small, Rob Zombie said it was the smallest show of the tour. I'm sure they were wondering where the fuck they were because it felt like the middle of nowhere and barely anybody seemed to be there. Topeka was pretty gross in general and the venue was literally minutes away from Westboro. There was one woman handing out cards for a local church but it wasn't for them. I had okay seats but was right next to the aisles so there were people constantly in the way going to get beer. It was annoying though I still had an amazing time. Oh, and I had no idea there was an opening act? It's some Slipknot member playing weird experimental (?) music with NIN samples or something. It was awkward.

Marilyn Manson came on and all of the setups and props were really cool. They were very punctual and organized. I loved all of the outfit changes, even if they were minor. The ones I don't think he's done yet so far (unless I overlooked something in another thread) are balloons for Personal Jesus, a dog leash (according to my mom, it was hard for me to tell) and feather collar for Rock is Dead, the coat and hat for Coma White and maybe a few others. There were no long arms since they didn't perform Tourniquet. I was much happier to see Coma White than Tourniquet, it was really amazing and stunning. I freaked out when they started playing it and thought I was going to cry. I'm never that emotionally affected at concerts. It was the full song, the video above doesn't show all of it. I just double checked the timestamps on my photos, haha.

The other songs were just as wonderful musically. They were in full form. There were a few iffy moments with the audio beyond their control but they seemed so in the zone that they didn't care. I loved seeing King Kill 33 live with Twiggy singing. He sang at most of the end of mOBSCENE as well. The Beautiful People was the best out of the other times I've seen it performed, Manson was in a great mood for it and was friendly to the audience. I don't remember too much of what he said then. Earlier he said he had slept with a stripper named Kansas or something like that. Before playing Slo-Mo-Tion, he referred to Twiggy as Twiggeth Ramireth. It was cute. John 5 and Ginger Fish were really cute too, they out shined Rob Zombie. Everyone was in such a great mood and it showed in the performances except I think Rob Zombie's vocals were awful and he focused too much on fan interaction.

I'll try to post the photos I took tomorrow, I'm very tired now but I thought I'd summarize for anyone going to the next show. I hope they play Coma White for the upcoming shows!

Yeah, they should make an announcement before the show that everyone has to be quiet during the show so you can enjoy your YouTube videos.

He was just enjoying himself in a very vocal way. I'm sure there are other Youtube videos available of the concert.
(and he wasn't actually singing louder than Manson lol)

So, it's a cryptic thing. He sat himself out in "Tourniquet" to play instead, Coma White/Black!

Here are the photos, there should be some from each song but if there's anything else you're curious about I have more. They're not the best quality but oh well. I realized some other things to point out. Manson actually wore the leash/rope/thing during several songs. He also had this weird white powder during Rock is Dead that he poured into the air (http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8312/8057290410_7dce624a40_o.jpg). These are a few of my favorite photos but you can view more here (http://flickr.com/gp/redtwentythree/1zd7uQ/). I'll have the Rob Zombie ones up later if anyone's interested in those.

Great pics, thanks for sharing. The black, silver, and white with the mirror shades (and a poodle? O.O) is such a great outfit.

(So, I'm assuming we're allowed cameras in?)

What poodle?

Haha, it's a huge arctic fox stole. A great outfit indeed.

Only point and shoot cameras were allowed, but I could have easily brought my SLR and gotten away with it. The security was really low and the venue staff was unorganized so you might not have the same luck. Like I said, the place was small (almost high school gymnasium small) in the middle of nowhere and they didn't care as long as you didn't bring weapons.

Hey all I want is for Marilyn Manson to deliver for once, but he doesn't seem to these days. I said that his voice is getting worse, and everyone cries at me for saying so.
His voice definitely isn't what it used to be, but he sounded a lot better at this show than any other time I've seen him perform. He wasn't too drunk or slow and I didn't detect his usual slur. I don't remember him messing up lyrics and he actually knew where he was, haha. Really though, he seems to have cleaned up his act, at least somewhat. My mom has gone with me to several Manson shows and is usually pretty disappointed at how he sounds but even she loved his performance the other night. As someone who was actually at the show, I think he delivered and it's the best he's been in a long time.

This album and this tour is what I've been looking for out of Manson for the past three tours. Glad to see that he is finally.... For lack of a better term... realizing that he is Marilyn Manson once again, and that when his fans go to a show THIS is what we expect.
Costume changes, props, and face paint. The stripped down live stage shows of the past few tours left me with a lot more to be desired. I love how everything feels like a culmination of the tours we saw prior to Golden Age with the better elements of Rape of The World.

Don't get me wrong... It's still nothing like Guns, God, Government or The Rock is Dead tour. But still... It's pretty fucking impressive.
