Halloween is a spooky time of year and we couldn’t imagine anything much creepier than seeing head goth Marilyn Manson flailing about before us as the creepy-crawlies rule the night. But that’s what some bold souls did in daring to attend Manson’s Halloween gig at The Roxy in West Hollywood.
Those in attendance were rewarded for their bravery come the encore, when Manson summoned two special guests to the stage to help perform hit single The Beautiful People. First Manson called upon actor, and accomplished guitarist, Johnny Depp, who has worked with Manson in the past.
Manson then introduced Die Antwoord rapper Ninja, who misses three cues to come onstage only to appear just after the song begins and immediately leap into the frothing crowd. What follows is a frenzied performance as Manson and Ninja splay themselves across the stage and get face-to-face with the front row.
Deep, too well-dressed and handsome for the occasion, easily handles his guitar duties. Even when Manson goes for crotch grab, following on from a cheeky butt squeeze when Depp first came out, Depp rocks on unfazed. A tip of the cap to Captain Jack.
Earlier in the week Manson put out new song Third Day Of A Seven Day Binge and made it available for free download. Manson will next be in Australia as part of Soundwave 2015 while Die Antwoord have been announced on the lineup for Future Music Festival 2015. Which means they’ll be in the country at the same time. Fingers crossed, eh?
