Looks like this one's gonna be my first show of the tour!

Assuming Manson himself makes it.

Nice to see you finally made it to a show. I'm going to see Kiss tonight here in Missouri. Maybe if he sees his super fan he might step up his game,lol. Are you planing on making the STL show?

Seeing some vips on instagram for tonight, no word and any further cancellations. Hope he's been saved from his afflictions

I was as worried as anyone that Manson might cancel again...but GODDAMNIT he came back STRONG!

But first, let's set the stage.

The Lakeview Amphitheater was just that, an amphitheater against a backdrop of a beautiful lake behind it. But whatever retarded architect decided it was a good idea to orient an outdoor stage with the seasonal sunset falling DIRECTLY behind-and-to-the-left of the performance-stage should be fucking shot. Unless you were RIGHT up front, it was almost IMPOSSIBLE to see a goddamned thing with BRUTAL sunlight glaring DIRECTLY in your face for almost the entirety of Manson's set. I mean, that's EXACTLY where the sun is KNOWN to fall at PRECISELY the one time of year the venue was built to host shows at PRECISELY that time of day! WTF.

But as soon as the sun dipped a little lower and the lights were dimmed for a minute, I hopped RIGHT over a rail into the pit and found my way up front. So it wasn't ALL bad!

But, yeah. Footage forthcoming! I could barely see what I was shooting or even my camera's display but I did what I could. I actually shot DIRECTLY into the sun a few times just so my viewing audience will understand how difficult it was to see ANYTHING, lol.

So of course I was SUPER bummed when I realized they cut "Deep Six" from the setlist. It would have been pretty cool to see a performance of that particular song with the sun burning SO FUCKING HOT around it. At one point I thought I was getting unexpectedly emotional and starting to cry before realizing it was just my fucking eyeballs melting out of my face like wax, ffs. The spray-on sunblock sweating down into them wasn't really helping either. And THEN all of a sudden I was hit SMACK DAB right in the face by a bag of red powder when Manson was tossing those everywhere. I hadn't sneaked into the pit yet so I was seriously at least a hundred feet away but it was such a BIG bag full of SO much powder that it had NO TROUBLE traversing the distance. So the sun, the sunblock, the sweat, and the granular powder dripping into and caking my eyeballs were fucking KILLING ME but at a certain point it was just so absurd a viewing experience that I could only grin and bear it, lol. EMBRACE THE CHAOS!

Oh, and they cut "This is the New Shit," too. But I honestly didn't even really realize those two songs were missing till it was all over. It was a VERY fulfilling set and quite well performed, so no complaints here. Especially given the hellish climate and Manson being fresh out of the hospital and likely still very sick, it was actually a pretty damned good showing. It seems the day off worth of rest served him well. But don't take MY word for it! I'll post some videos a.s.a.p. and you can judge for yourselves. Just waiting for the HD uploads to finish!

Lots of crazy personal drama at this show for me, too. The less said the better, but the run-in with my ex I'd been dreading was surprisingly relaxed and I'm glad we finally got to talk again for the first time in MONTHS, not to mention the fact that it happened at a Manson show just like how we met in the first place. Still breaks my heart but we're talking again and we were immediately on MUCH better terms, so that really capped the night off perfectly following a KILLER set by Slipknot. It was pretty shitty these last few months, so getting closer to being friends again all of a sudden, making some kind of peace with each other, and really just breaking the silence and finally finding common ground to communicate over again was just about the most UNEXPECTED but WHOLEHEARTEDLY WELCOME and LONG OVERDUE outcome possible. Really thought that nightmare would end in a complete shitshow last night yet I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to get along and remember what it was like to just be cool with each other again. I think we both were and it's still sad but more of a happy-sad now, fwiw. I guess she thought I hated her all this time but I never could, I was just hurt pretty bad and it was kind of her fault so that was hard to deal with but it was nice to reassure that NO ONE hates her, least of all me. Just a HUGE weight off both of our shoulders after all the bullshit.

BUT OMFG I DIGRESS. The point is that the show was awesome, Manson was great, and that it was SO COOL to be there with my besties Melissa/fukfrankie, her hotass teenage daughter (I didn't say that, HANDS-OFF, lol), and of course my eternal quasi-heterosexual lifemate Jack/j_absinthe visiting from NYC. Finally reaching some kind of closure and equilibrium with my ex just made the whole thing even more bizarrely surreal but fantastically so. It was a pretty fucking cool gathering, to say the least.

I hate that my life's been such chaotic wreckage lately that it forced THIS to to be my first show of a tour so long underway, but I'm still glad it such a fucking AWESOME one as well as such a wonderful experience overall. Can't wait for my next! I just fucking WISH it could be sooner. As it stands now, it looks like I'll probably have to wait till St. Louis but that's cool. This was SO FUCKING EXCELLENT that I can TOTALLY deal with that without TOO much regret, at least.

MM Show #179 = COMPLETE SUCCESS.

10/10 WOULD BANG AGAIN

Aw, shaddup.

They were fucking cool as hell and right in front of me. Don't get me wrong, I still wish I'D been picked instead but they kicked ass!

Went out of my way to track them down immediately and exchange info so they could get my footage later, too. It's messy as hell but I'm sure they'll love it! Very chill and badass chicks, they just thick too. Nothin' wrong with that!

Glad they had such a fun night.

STRAIGHT OUTTA THE HOSPITAL & INTO HELLISHLY BLINDING DAYLIGHT!

Manson fucking KILLED IT last night, against ALL odds.

I rarely get to upload my footage so fast, so FEAST YOUR EYES & CRANK THE BASS. Not my finest work but it REALLY captures the moment!

Posted as is. RAW FUCKING DATA, man.

DEAL WITH IT.

Thanks Haz. Glad you had a good time! I heard a video that was uploaded last night of Manson performing Angel With the Scabbed Wings from this show and he seemed to be pretty good. Can't wait to watch your footage.

I'm sure he had some other obligations, work related possibly.

I just watched the performance of The Beautiful People when the two girls were let on stage. Looked like fun!

I was really disappointed when I saw the videos.

But then I watched the 7/16 performance, which is fucking awesome, and its pretty clear Manson still isn't feeling well. Explains the short set and the long breaks and all and after all they're just Youtube vids. The band is still great, hope Manson will feel better soon.

It's most likely because he wasn't feeling well. That also explains the long breaks between songs. Best not to overdue it.

First and foremost that is some great fucking footage. Manson sounds wonderful! All the movement around the stage and into the crowd is great. Also bringing two fans onto stage to participate in performing The Beautiful People is simply awesome. My only complaint is that sun! Fuck the sun!

The Movement Of Fear Cover I saw Dronepool linking, that was from this show right? I think the date was just billed wrong on YouTube, certainly looked like this tour. Anyway, even if it was an excerpt, it was fantastic. Should it indicate what sort of thing they're being influenced by or writing style for a new record, I'll be impressed.

I really did, thanks.

Hopefully on my way to St. Louis soon!

Yeah, you have to remember that this tour was supposed to be almost done by now. So Tyler Bates would have played a lot more shows by now if the tour hadn't started late. And I'm pretty sure he left to work on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and JUST in time for the San Diego Comic Con, so it's all good.

His association with that franchise and Manson IS the main reason we finally got to hear Manson cover "Moonage Daydream" a few times, after all.

So it's all good! Wiley's still holding shit down, regardless.

Manson was performing fresh out of the hospital after several cancellations.

The fact that he took the stage AT ALL let alone SO WELL is impressive as hell.

Glad you liked it, thanks! And, yeah...the sun can pretty much go fuck itself, lol.

Is it? Sorry, I'm not sure. He performed it a bunch over the last year-and-a-half or so, fwiw. Can you link to the video? I'd love to see an alternate angle or a different performance I might have missed, if so.

And, yeah. Born Villain definitely worked that post-punk angle and any Tones On Tail influence would be MORE than welcome!
