Two Marilyn Manson Concerts Cancelled In Russia !

It must be really HARD to upset Marilyn Manson. I mean, the guy is ALWAYS sad about something. I'm sure most of it is an act, but when you ACT sad and pissed off all the time, I'm sure it starts to stick. Even so, I bet ol' Mr. Manson was plenty sad this weekend when TWO of his shows were cancelled in Russia. Marilyn "Brain Warner" Manson threw out a tweet saying that Friday's concert in Moscow, which was part of the Park Live Festival, was axed just as the band was about to go onstage because of a bomb threat.

 

Plus it's not very easy to dance to

On top of that, protests allegedly forced authorities to deny Manson permission to put on a concert in central Russia on Sunday. The protesters were supposedly accusing Manson of promoting sadomasochism. Really? People in Russia are STILL protesting outside rock shows? It was one thing when people protested outside the Delta Center when Nine Inch Nails came to SLC in the 90's. I mean, it was still scary back then. Manson was supposed to open that show and for one reason or another was told he couldn't. But that was 1995! I guess Russia is a little behind on their pop culture.

 

 

   

What is it now that you are talking about, Willis??   

 

Despite the recent setbacks, Manson is set to continue his European tour later this summer. The next leg starts with a show in the Netherlands on August 6th.
