This will mark the rock icon’s first ever performance in Hong Kong in his music career.
Manson’s sensationalist music and art that rejects conservative values created an icon who has infiltrated fashion, television, film and music, and whose fingerprints coat modern culture. More than 20 years into his career, Manson is still a lightning rod of controversy and the pageantry and debauchery of his life are perfectly intact.
Themes of violence, sex, politics and romance slice through his latest album Heaven Upside Down. Manson asks his fans to brutally pledge their devotion on “KILL4ME” and delves into new genres with a trap beat on the track “SAY10” as he proclaims “I’m a legend, I’m not a fable.” The ten tracks were recorded in Los Angeles and create a cinematic sonic palate that harkens back to the ferocity of seminal Manson albums Portrait of an American Family and Holy Wood.
Critics are calling the album “the kind of career-defining record that Marilyn Manson just might want to leave as his last great opus” (Consequence of Sound). Howard Stern calls it “ferocious,” Zane Lowe calls it “brilliant” and Rolling Stone calls it “aggressive and intense” and proclaims Manson has “returned to straight-ahead shock.” It features recent single “WE KNOW WHERE YOU FUCKING LIVE,” which trolls the dark frenetic territory that made Manson a God-like figure.
