Rob Zombie + Marilyn Manson Show Canceled After Venue Floods
On a tour bill where chaos is king, Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson’s 2018 "Twins of Evil" run has seen many newsworthy moments. Unfortunately, New York fans were on the losing end of luck last night (Aug. 7) when severe weather forced the cancellation of the tour’s stop at Jones Beach.
Zombie and Manson kicked off their co-headlining tour on a high note, releasing a cover of the Beatles classic “Helter Skelter” and performing it live together. Unfortunately, Manson came down with the flu, prompting a last-minute cancellation of his set on July 26 in Toronto. Zombie saved the day, however, performing an extended set including a cover of Manson’s “Sweet Dreams” reimagining.
As for the outdoor Jones Beach amphitheater, incredibly bad weather got in the way of Manson and Zombie’s traveling sideshow. Jones Beach attempted to delay the show at first, but with the rain refusing to break and the theater's floor actually flooding, the venue called off the show at around 10 PM.
“We’re really sorry folks that the show at Jones Beach, Wantagh NY, was cancelled tonight due to the extremely bad weather,” says a post on Rob Zombie’s Facebook page. “I’m guessing we’re gonna have to make some extra sacrifices to the rain gods to plead with them to stop screwing with our shows. Please see below a note from tonight’s venue and follow them and your ticket point of purchase to be updated on refunds. Sorry again.” The singer also posted a photo of the lightning taking place on Instagram:
