So, it happened again. Manson joined Smashing Pumpkins onstage to sing Ava Dore

Any reports from people who were actually there? My FB news feed had people saying that he was both awesome and terrible. Mind, I tend to ignore the terrible reports somewhat as they can never give exact reasons why and typically exaggerate it all somewhat, but would be good to hear from someone... GOTHVAMP666, what was it like?

Just a typical festival side-stager.

From that video at least it doesn't look half as bad (or a quarter... or an eighth...) as bad as some people were making out. Manson has never translated as well to an open air festival in daylight, and every performer has their days where they're not as switched on as others, but looks like a decent show from that performance. I liked the wiping the smile on/ off and running circles around Twiggy.

Yeah, I heard about that on the day as well, I saw people complaining about it on social media as one of the things that supposedly made his performance bad. People complain when Manson's not the same that he used to be, but when he behaves like he did for years in the period they supposedly want more of, they complain.

Manson's been cutting himself again (and again and again) since the Boston show, where Sadist (the actually pretty awesome opening band) beat him to it by MINUTES this time around.

And, yeah, in terms of performance art, it's pretty cool to see, a great visual element, and FUCK, YEAH.


But, in terms of him being an actual person who's going through some rough times with interpersonal relations AND hearkening back to his most self-destructive era EVER, it really IS a bit worrisome.


That said, Manson's a consummate artist, performer, and a DAMNED smart guy...so I'm not sweating it too much.

Kinda neat to see that he's consistently concentrating the gashes on his left wrist/forearm area, actually.

I seem to remember that being the case back in the early Dita days, come to think of it.

Interesting, I guess.

Be cool, man.
