    Can you tell us more about this? Was it like the makeup people he had at a few shows?

    Also, I'll be excited to see the pictures you have.

    I haven't watched anything from previous shows so I can't really say. Mostly during WOW he reappeared with a man standing next to him with a spotlight shining on his face, and girl holding a stack of signs for him that had "wow" written on them. I thought it was a weird part of the show because neither of these individuals were really dressed up like they were going to be on stage, I think the guy was just wearing jeans, and the girl looked like she was wearing blue underwear and a white t shirt. This is only my 2nd show but I've watched a lot of videos of past performances and the theatrics were definitely toned down, although again I'm not sure if that was just Reno or this tour in general. Seemed awkward for them to just be standing there in fairly normal clothes. Eh, might've been a point there I completely missed though. Just my 2 cents

    As for pictures, I'll upload them in a bit :)

    i was there as well, and yeah, it was the assistants/makeup people. they were out there a little more than i've seen at past shows. And "Running..." sounded amazing live, and it's good to see Twiggy helping out on vocals.

    Ah I see. I think they are supposed to be a part of the whole "acting baby" concept of The High End of Low. The test cards have been discussed in the "Visual Parallels" thread in Evidence, it might fill things in for you to have a read of that, no worries if not though.

    I think it's also a reaction to all that commentary from "fans" at the start of the year that he was past it or whatever. I think he enjoys the irony of being like "well if you say Manson's fucked up, then Manson must be fucked up". If people think he can't remember the words to his songs and needs to helped out by stage hands, then part of the act or theatrics is to have them there as part of the performance.

    Well, it was a rather small venue, so yeah it was pretty packed
    thanks for the clarification there, the concept makes a bit more sense now in retrospect, although it's still not working for me completely.

    Does anyone know who the opening band was? ach I thought they were horrible!
