An eclectic crowd (to say the least) was in attendance to see the man who is firmly entrenched as a member of the Mount Rushmore of shock rock in his first appearance at the beautiful Vina Robles Amphitheatre on October 23.
Marilyn Manson brought his ‘The Hell Not Hallelujah’ tour to Paso Robles, kicking everybody’s ass from the get-go. With a mix of his most well known tracks and fresh cuts from his latest ‘The Pale Emperor’ release. Manson and his band have been resurrected and are bringing in an a new generation of fans with his latest album. consisting of long time member and bassist Twiggy Ramirez, guitarist Paul Wiley, drummer Gil Sharone and keyboardist Daniel Fox rocked it from beginning to end.
The stage set added to the decadent ambiance, with mics resembling a knife and a gun, and some pretty awesome stained glass windows with a God like Manson on them.
Who would have thought parents and their kids could attend a Manson show together and both appreciate it, but that is now in full effect.
