Tuesday, January 23


In 2017, Marilyn Manson doesn’t really need any introduction. Since the early ‘90s, the rock ‘n’ roller has been shocking America with his flagrant stage antics and catalog of music that has spanned a variety of genres including spooky circus-sounding rock (Portrait of an American Family), industrial (Antichrist Superstar), glam-rock (Mechanical Animals), bluesy-roots rock (Pale Emperor), and sometimes a combination of it all. On Tuesday, January 23 the “Dope Show” singer will return to San Antonio in support of his latest album Heaven Upside Down, which, in contrast to 2015’s The Pale Emperor, leans a little more towards electronic drum sounds and production. Arguably one of the most controversial artists of all time, Manson’s modus operandi has always been to reflect the dark underbelly of America, and with the state of our nation, it’s safe to say that the Antichrist Superstar’s work is far from over. $59-$175, 8pm, Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary's St, (210) 812-4355, theaztectheatre.com.
