Marylin Manson Returns to Columbus, Finally!
It’s been almost three years since Manson has graced a stage Columbus, Ohio. That drought will end on May 20th when Manson plays the mainstage at the annual Rock on the Range at Crew Stadium.
Time can be a blessing or a curse for an artist. Take too much time off and you can be forgotten. Take too little and the artist can burn out or worse stagnate. In the case of Marilyn Manson, his time from the spotlight seems to have been what was needed. Honestly, it’s going to take quite a bit of time for anyone to forget Marilyn Manson. That’s a bit of the point, though. Manson was being remembered for the wrong things and not for he should be: his artistry. Time has allowed those “wrong things” to fade a little, giving space for Manson to remind everyone what put him in the public conscience in the first place.
Marilyn Manson is touring in support of his new album “Born Villain,” which was released May 1st on Cooking Vinyl Records. Don’t consider this as reinvention or a rebirth for Manson. Perhaps a more focused Manson, as evident in the first single from the new album “No Reflection.” This is Manson at his purest form with a classic Twiggy riff. I’ve always placed Manson in the category of musical artist. That’s part of what makes Mason and his shows captivating. His blend of goth, metal, literature, art, etc. results in shows you can’t ignore. Considering, Manson hasn’t toured since 2009, it makes one intrigued to experience what Manson has in store.. May 20th ,there is really only one place you should be.
