Got my tickets through the pre-sale. Could of gotten some yesterday but they only said upper tier, I wanted lower tier... but The Ticket Factory pre-sale showed that only the back blocks had lower tier seating. I did read that they can collapse the lower tier's to allow for more standing room so I assume this is the case.
However I should be front row in Block 2, so it should be a good view.

I'm at this. Is it normal for them to have already sent me my tickets? Seems rather early...

Most bands I see I get tickets really early, I got my MM ones for this show yesterday. I got tickets for Alice Cooper when they went on sale last month and they came a week or so after ordering and that's not until the end of October!

The tickets I had for Blink-182 was the funniest, I ordered them on the day they went on sale in 2011, and received them early. I think they arrived around Feb or April 2011 with the show happening in July 2011, but then they cancelled the tour and pushed it all the way back to July 2012 so I had these tickets sat on my shelf for over a year before I could even use them. I actually forgot all about them until one day I was looking for something and found this envelope and looked inside it, luckily that was a few months before the show and not after.

My now to be ex girlfriend made tonight quite complicated which made tonight a bit difficult :( I'm not even sure if I ran into many people from here, and I don't remember much from the show. Not happy with myself but I have two awesome shows to fall back on at least

From all the 3shows in England, this is "the worst one" for me.

Not because Manson wasn't commited (quite the opposite), but it is really annoying when the space from the stage to the crowd is like 2-3meters... how can he engage with the audience when he is standing so far from the audience (and I am not talking about stunts like Rob Zombie did of walking in the fences)??? It is really a climax breaker to see him playing to far from the crowd :(


The other negative side of today's show, was that someone completely messed up by the end of Manson's show. He was still down on the stage, "smashing" the drums, and he was completely caught by surprise when "you're so vain" started playing really loud - his face looked like he was completely astonished by what was happening... and this, even before he had made time to say goodbye to the crowd and for TBP to be finished...


Also, and apart from the tie, it was nice to see him use new props during No Reflection, TBP and was that a bible during AS or a random book???

I just saw this on Tumblr...

The Last Thing Manson Told Me:
To my dad: “She’s a good kid”
To me: “Don’t grow up to like a man like me. Be with someone like your dad, he’s a good person”

I don't know, I think it's sweet the way he talks to some of his fans, particularly his younger ones. That story about what he said to that 13 year old girl? I wish he'd put that forth in more interviews nowadays.

Myself and Fred Sablan backstage: (my hair was a bit mental last night - lol!)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v296/ditame/Twins%20of%20Evil%202012/fred.jpg

I do have images with myself and John, Rob, PD and Sheri too which I will try and post at some point, just trying to edit down - one of the images got too much light on it.

EDIT: Here's a quick overview with everyone else.

The image includes myself with Rob, PD, J5 and Sheri (pic came out too bright) plus my pass and two sets of unused GF drumsticks (he is very shy but an animal on stage).

Anyway, enjoyed the show, Coma White and Personal Jesus were my fav from Manson and Rob, despite having a real bad throat really blew the place apart. We watched Manson from the crowd and Zombie from the sound booth (sound guys are nuts and entertaining in themselves). We were really looked after by Rob, the band and the crew. Saw Twiggy as he was running past us to go to the bus and on the way back he ran past, but stopped slightly to catch our eye and smile but it was freezing outside and he looked to be getting ready (not long before Manson's set so we didn't bother him).

Hey, nice photos!

New props for No Reflection?? Wow, I need to see this! What were they?

Norsefire
11-30-2012, 11:52 AM
I haven't had time to sit and do a write up, but here's some details, I do have pics and videos and again they will come soon.

I think the mask which I think looks like, or is a rib cage that I think he wore sometimes for ACSS, he wore that for No Reflection and with that wore a black apron. Never seen the black apron used before.

The Beautiful People had the long pieces of material flowing out of him across the width of the stage. I think someone mentioned he was going to do it, and I think he did it on some US dates. Didn't do it at Manchester so I was pleased to see it at this show.

Also noticed he was getting out an American flag to wipe over himself during Personal Jesus and also picking up a wedge of american flag flyers and ripping them in half and tossing them into the crowd. Never seen/noticed that happening before, may have just missed it though.

Gotta say that lighting is much better than at the show I saw in AZ, and also the extra fog/smoke that blows up from different areas of the stage, I liked that.

I also think he came out singing KK33 with a gas mask on, could be wrong though. Has he been doing this recently?

Love the opening stage design for this tour, it looked like a Church in ruins to begin with anyway, but now with I guess holes in the floor blasting up smoke and paper littered all over the stage, it really looks good. Actually during The Dope Show at one of the shows, can't remember which he picked up some paper and smeared it on him when he sang "they love you when you're on all the covers..."
Anyone know what's on all that paper littered all over the stage? Is it pre-printed stuff for MM or what?

Tigger
11-30-2012, 12:01 PM
^^ He came out with the gas mask during KK33 in Dallas, fucked with Twiggy, then went up to the podium and took it off. LOL!

Great to see those little new details but it blows my mind that there has been no variation in setlist all tour long!

The gas mask looked to be attached to his megaphone with some kind of mic

Thanks Terrapin! The audio on those videos is quite good! Still doesn't capture the true sound, but fuck yeah still sounds quite good! I took some videos at this show too, my clip of Coma White isn't too bad. Some songs are a bit wrecked though.

He shaved his eyebrows for the Californification shooting and has kept them that way ever since. He's probably realized he looks SAO much hotter with them gone.

And those vocals, holy cow! I don't think the poor setlist matters in comparison to these beautiful vocals!

Wow, I didnt know that he shaved them for Californification! VERY glad that he did though and has kept them like this! He does look 100000x better without them!
Yeah and he really sounds good lately.. His vocals chords must have gotten used to singing constantly for now over a year (his own tour and now one with RZ) and this constance practice must be doing good for his singing technique too!

Geee, Coma White sounds just like on the record singing wise! Really really HUGE improvement in Manson's vocals!!
How many artists these days are able to perform their songs live anywhere near as good and true to the recorded version as he does?

Norsefire

Yeah and that video doesn't capture how it really sounds at the show. I loved seeing Coma White performed, probably my favourite part of the show.

Here's a clip of Personal Jesus.

At the start of the year I wasn't so sure that PJ was a good choice, then I saw it in Brixton and the crowd just went crazy for it, and again at these shows it just works so well.

There's just one thing I haven't understood very well.

I arrived at Birmingham around 4pm, and there was already a long waiting line to enter the NIA, but in Manchester, I was literally nex to the doors that gave access to the MEN arena, and I just walked there around 5pm, with not many people waiting in line nor anything....


Btw Emma, where were you in this show???

There was a small crowd near the box office when I got to the MEN Arena before 5, but I saw some people waiting around at another part of the arena so I wonder if there were a few ways people could enter the arena than the doors next to the box office.

Never saw the lines for NIA because the meet and greet people went in early through another door, but when I got there at around 2pm in the day there was already people waiting outside near the main doors, and it was cold!

There's three entrances. One in Victoria station... and two others.
