Zombie, Manson to Arkansas State Fairgrounds

  • Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson are coming to town on Oct. 6.

Looks like the Arkansas State Fairgrounds will be getting a double dose of evil rock 'n' roll theatricality long about Oct. 6, when The Edge 100.3 brings in Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson.

Opening up is Korn frontman Jonathan Davis, who'll man the wheels of steel (or plastic or whatever) as J Devil. You'll perhaps recall that Korn's last studio album was some kinda dubstep thing.

The Edge is billing this as Monster Ball 2012, tickets are $38 and they'll start to administer the sinister at the unholy hour of 5 p.m.

Tickets are available at ticketmaster.com starting at 10 a.m., Aug. 25.

Children ages 8 and younger are free with a paid adult, if you think this kind of thing is at all even remotely appropriate for a young'un, which, hey, your call, I guess.

I was 16 when I saw Marilyn Manson open for Nine Inch Nails, and I still bear the scars of being exposed to that much taboo-shattering shock-rock at such an impressionable age. It totally disillusioned me about our corrupt, vacuous culture and tore the scales from my eyes, exposing the vile inner workings behind the perverse religio-media-military-industrial machine that was the United States in the mid-'90s. What a sickening cesspool of lies that was. Everybody playing nicey-nice behind their neat little white picket fences and perfect little suburban homes, while behind closed doors, all manner of blah blah blah, and so forth.
