    Marilyn Manson returns to Russia



    MOSCOW, July 31. /TASS/. On July 31, American rock musician Marilyn Manson will stage a concert in Moscow’s Stadium club, the club’s press service said.

    Manson is currently on tour in support of his new album called Heaven Upside Down. After the Moscow gig, he will perform in Ukraine, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, France, the United States, Sweden, Denmark, the Czech Republic, Austria, Italy and the United Kingdom.

    In the summer of 2014, Manson’s shows in Moscow and the Siberian city of Novosibirsk were cancelled. His performance at the Park Live festival at VDNKh in Moscow was called off due to a bomb scare while some Orthodox Christian activists protested against his concert in Novosibirsk lambasting him for allegedly promoting homosexuality. However, Novosibirsk Mayor Anatoly Lokot said that according to prosecutors there was nothing wrong with Manson’s songs. Since the show was scheduled during the festival of City Day, when municipal services and law enforcement officials were going to have their hands full with keeping order during the local celebrations, the concert had to be postponed. In the end, the city administration put forward other dates for the concert but the singer’s management said he was unable to perform in Novosibirsk on suggested days.

    Marilyn Manson is musician Brian Hugh Warner’s stage name formed by juxtaposing the names of the US actress Marilyn Monroe and notorious murderer Charles Manson. In 1989, Warner founded an industrial rock band Marilyn Manson which has so far released nine studio albums and received a number of music awards including four Grammys.
    TASS: Society & Culture - Renowned American rocker Marilyn Manson to stage concert in Moscow

    Manson had some great adventures in Russia back in 2014.

    Lots of Orthodox believers didn't want this "satanic sodomite" to come "corrupt our children", as the ladies' sign says


    There were such protests all over the place.

    In Novosibirsk, however, the "protest" consisted of a large group of young tough guys, apparently Orthodox nationalists, who came and blocked the entrance to the venue

    After at least one confrontation where the Orthodox hoodlums assaulted Manson fans who tried to enter past them, authorities placated the Orthodox and shut it all down, for everyone's safety.

    At least the Mayor Anatoly Lokot

    spoke out against them. I commend him for that. Takes balls in Russia these days, to openly say something against the Church, even if he couldn't do anything about it anyway... Lokot, of course, is a Communist, loyal member of the Party, as that red flag on his desk attests. Life long Communist, in fact, was in the Communist youth groups as a teen, back in the USSR... He is an atheist and hates the Church, like most Commies, though is powerless against them, as things stand.

    In Moscow, meanwhile, someone (likely other outraged Orthodox) phoned in a bomb threat to disrupt the big concert there.

    Later, Orthodox "activists" chased Manson and his musicians from the concert venue, here is Manson running

    to their bus

    Obscenities and raw eggs were hurled at them the whole time.

    Leading those ones was Dmitry Enteo, a notorious Orthodox radical

    Enteo and his goons have violently disrupted gay rights demonstrations; forcibly took over the stage at a theater play they felt insulted the Orthodox Christian faith (beating up an actor who confronted them), stormed and trashed abortion clinics on several occasions, and ran amoc in a museum which also dared put up an exhibition that offended the Church, vandalizing and destroying numerous exhibits. Oh, and they also physically attacked people at a Pastafarian protest march. Among other things. Nice guys, in short lol

    Gonna be very interesting to see what happens now. There is even more of a nationalistic and anti-Western climate in Russia these days... Manson is kind of foolish for going back there, honestly...

    Not sure, Ozzy bit the head off a bat at a show.

    Manson broke a bunch of glass bottles on stage and ended up cutting himself accidentally at the show I was at.
