After a long work week and school starting I was excited to be at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands to see Of Mice & Men, Marilyn Manson, and the great Slipknot.

I am not a huge fan of Marilyn Manson however I was excited to see him live for the first time. I expected him to change my thoughts a bit once I watched him perform, instead he helped solidify my opinion!

I was pretty grossed out and shocked at his inability to care for his artistry. I wasn’t even sure if he knew the words he was supposed to sing and if he did it came across as garbled. He threw his snot out to the crowd and often spit into the crowd. Who does that?

I guess if you are Marilyn Manson, you get away with throwing bodily fluids at your fans. To top it off, he threw a toy microphone in to the pit hitting a fan in the head.

I believe it is important to make a connection with your fans, just not this way! Who is this guy? I always try to see the best in people so I am still giving this performance a shot. He didn’t get much of a reaction or excitement from the audience. He was sloppy, slurring, and he needed some help contouring his makeup! Pretty disappointing and pathetic in my opinion.

Seriously, people pay a good chuck of money to witness this circus act!  Then to top it off he apparently does not like the photographers! Our photographer, Euan Torrie had the luxurious experience of getting sweetly sprinkled aka nailed with Marilyn Manson’s magic blue pixie dust.

Enough about that circus let’s get to Slipknot! Corey Taylor, front man for Slipknot recently had spinal surgery. Slipknot was forced to postpone the tour. Two months later, they are performing here in The Woodlands. That is commitment. He is in a neck brace and still rocking with the show must go on attitude. The crowd went crazy. No comparison to the crowd for Marilyn, felt like 2 different concerts. This 9 member band has so much personality and charisma; it’s hard to keep your eyes on just one in the band.  The epic and unique drummers on each side of the stage that were moving up and down include unique set ups with kegs for percussion. Front man Corey Taylor talks about the world being crazy and we must all stick together as he called the crowd his friends, they cheered. The he called the crowd his family, they roared!

All in all it was a great concert. Slipknot put on the best show out of the two I’d say and out shined Marilyn Manson, but that is my opinion once again. I know there are die hard Manson fans out there, but getting spit on just doesn’t do it for me.
