Marilyn Manson at Fillmore Miami… July 21, 2013

So I have been waiting years and years to see Manson in concert. In fact, I really believe even before seeing this show I may of waited way too many years. Either way, I was super excited to finally see the band. I have been listening to Marilyn Manson probably since Mechanical Animals came out in the late 90s. I guess I was a lil late to the Manson craze before only knowing really Beautiful People. Anyways since Mechanical Animals I have been a fan. I’ve had numerous chances of seeing them live in the past but just always had something going on I guess. I will say his last 3 albums have been less then memorable…

So after one horrible opening band, Manson comes on. The only realy remaining members of the band are Manson and Jordie aka Twiggy. Although Twiggy now plays guitar not bass. The setlst wasn’t too terrible. I mean yeah, I wish I heard a few particular tracks including: Tourniquet, The Nobodies, Great Big White World, and a few others. I did like that they played 4 songs off of Antichrist though. I will also say hearing the Golden Age of Grotesque songs live were way better then I remember them being on the album. I hate hearing bands play covers but Manson does a good job normally. Sweet Dreams is just a staple in their setlist. As far as the show goes I thought it was pretty half assed. Manson seemed tired and bored and the imagery and backgrounds were cheap and kinda lame for todays standards. Mansons props and costumes were cool but I definitely think they could’ve benefited from a nice LED screen ala Tool or something. In the end I am happy I went and am glad I finally saw them live but just wish it was 13 years earlier.
