Marilyn Manson to Play War Memorial Auditorium July 9



While not quite as exciting news as ICP at the Ryman, this announcement is at least real. To the delight of the Music City goth contingent, allegedly self-fellating shock rock anti-jock and former Bowling for Columbine and Mr. Belvedere star Marilyn Manson is back to strike fear in the hearts of local social-security-eligible bible beaters and strike LOLs in the Facebook feeds of pop-culture junkies when he brings his traveling to-steeple-size-relative circus of prosthetics, tourniquets, stilts and sweet dreams to War Memorial Auditorium on July 9.

This begs (at least) three questions: Is Marilyn Manson still relevant in The Rock’n’ Roll Danger Department? If so, will church groups congregate in War Memorial Plaza to protest the Mechanical Animals singer’s appearance and pray for the souls of concertgoers, even if said concertgoers are mostly 30-somethings with lives and careers? And if so, will said protesters (and maybe even The Spin) meet the same fate Occupy Nashville campers and Scene staff did in the plaza?

Tickets start at $40 and go on sale this Friday, May 3, at 10 a.m. right here.

In related news: Picture Me Broken is the real name of a real band that actually exists, and will open the show. Did the band perhaps find its name here?

What to expect?:
