I'll be surprised if anybody beat Hazekiah's record, but well, you'd just never know sometimes. Did any of you also follow Marilyn Manson for an entire tour, or near an entire tour, or at least multiple shows within the same tour? What was the farthest Marilyn Manson show that you have ever attended?

The only time I got to see him, I'd waited on a chance for over ten years, I knew I was about to be homeless, my cell phone and car were both trying to die on me, but I did an 8-hour round trip, alone. Almost got mugged on the way back. And it was worth it.

The furthest I traveled to see MM was to Melbourne, Australia. That took an intercity train, a plane and a bus. I live about an hour north of Sydney. It was the first time I saw MM, totally worth the trip.

I spent a good 1 1/2 (I think) following the tour. Strated around the time Born Villain came out/stopped just before the last Masters Of Madness show. I flew from VA-LA for one of the shows. But yea I'm no where near Haz's record.

Maybe about 11 miles, to downtown. I actually went even farther the other day to see some bands that I barely know (180 miles). Would have went even further for Manson if I had a car at the time.

12 hrs to Denver, 5 hrs to Vegas, about 3min to the venue in SLC. Thankfully even if he doesn't come to UT, it's 12hrs either direction to Denver or LA.

have never followed an entire tour....this whole having to work for a living thing tends to get in the way of shit like that. but i've gone coast to coast for shows when i can grab some vacation time. i think since 1999 i've seen MM maybe like....30ish times?....at various locations around the U.S.

11 hours flight from Brazil to London (and Manchester) in 2012. It was all worth it.

I live in England and I went to a show in Phoenix AZ, Google says I travelled 5199 miles.... But I was visiting family it was just good timing that Manson announced a show whilst I was there.

Ha! It was too. No wonder you were so keen.

My furthest travel is the same as Dysmorphia's. I do hope that poor guy after the show remembered where he lived and got home ok.

I've never seen him outside my town. But México City is way too big, so I guess the farthest and longest I've traveled to see him was an approx. of 45/50 kilometers (metric system FTW!!!) when they played in 2012, along with Deftones.

I've seen the band several times in different portuguese cities but the farthest were the times when I took flights from Porto/Portugal to London/England on the gig with Zombie, that according with google equals to 981.41 miles, and the one Porto/Portugal to Milan/Italy on the Hey Cruel World tour, that is about 943 miles.

I live in England, and went to the Ozzfest shows in San Diego, San Franciso and Sacramento in 2003, plus the standalone gig at House Of Blues in Las Vegas. That must have racked up a good few miles! In terms of travel time I think the gig I went to in Scotland, by train, took almost as long to get to as it did to fly to California though!

Flew to Florida from Connecticut for my 11th show, not terribly far. Skipped out on my LA trips every time.

I've gone from Philly up to Toronto and down to virginia beach. Nothing more than 10 hours.

I took a bus from Toronto to Detroit in 2008 to see Manson and Twiggy reunited. ♡ Best Manson show I've ever been to.

From Colorado to Las Vegas, although it wasn't specifically for that show. The concert happened to be good timing. I did fly to Vegas for a Beatles convention.
