In my opinion it was a fucking brilliant show. The whole band seemed to be in a great mood and I'd describe their performance as energetic.
Same setlist. I didn't see any female body on stage. He's still wearing the Aids tie during Personal Jesus.

I made a little Aids banner and held it up during Dope Show. He saw it within seconds, looked at me and gestured that he wants me to give it to him. For a heartbeat I was just completely stunned that he was directly interacting with me. I honestly started to shiver, I was just so excited. I had my camera in my right hand so I had to use my left hand to throw the thing on stage and he very nearly caught it. When it fell to the floor he started tapping one of the security guys on the shoulder so he would hand it up. And then Manson did various things with the banner, as you can possibly imagine. ;) When he was done he tried to throw it back at me but I couldn't reach it.

I also did the meet and greet again. There was once more a time change. The email, which I received yesterday morning, said the following: "Due to unforeseen circumstances we will have to change the VIP experience to an After Show Party."
During the show I learned that the "unforeseen circumstances" were a perceived fight and Manson's ear injury. The M&G was great. Manson still was in a splendid mood and talked a lot. He had some kind of a mask that was connected with some tubes over his ear. No idea if that was necessary ^^ but I'd think it was just a joke. :P It looked interesting and he was wearing it for the photos so you might as well get to see it.

I'll post a little more details later on and also plan to share some of my pictures if they're any good.
But now, I have to get some sleep. I only spent a few hours in bed since the m&g took place after the show.

Thanks for the details, that Aids banner sounds great, can't wait to see video/pics of him with that.

We received our m&g photos today and those two pics were included in the file. You can see the mask he wore over his ear. I nearly got caught up in the tube when I took my photos with him.

I am still so fucking tired. But I will post more soon. ;)

Edit: Some more pictures of the show can be found here (http://www.art-noir.ch/art-noir/nggallery/page-28/album-13/gallery-497)and here (http://www.negativewhite.ch/index.php/zombinator-rockte-das-joggeli/#comment-486).

On both pages MM receives a bad write-up. The writers say his voice sounded shit, he didn't ineract with fans, wasn't motivated to perform...I really don't know if we've seen the same show. His voice was great, I dare to say he sounded fantastic. Ok, he messed up his entry for Rock Is Dead a tiny little bit bit that was it.

I had my dad and two friends with me. They all enjoyed his show and thought it was a very solid performance. They also had some praise for the band. One of the friends started to get interested in MM because I care about this band so much. She had never seen him live before butchecked out all his albums during the last few weeks. She was as blown away as I was. I mean, I do think that despite the fact that I love this band to death and adrenaline starts to race through my body when I see them, I am still able to judge. I am way more critical when it comes to things I like. It just annoys me to read all that bullshit.
His performance was emotional, he interacted with his fans and got me totally confused several time when he looked directly at me...he talked to the audience and seemed to enjoy the show as well.
Well sorry, I know I shouldn't care about any of those "critics". I just had to give went to my anger since I hate the fact that people just don't seem to get what's really going on right in front of them...
