Marilyn Manson is coming to the UK in December

Gothfather Marilyn Manson has confirmed UK headline dates for December 2017.

Marilyn Manson will play shows in Manchester, Glasgow, Wolverhampton, Newport and London this winter. The news comes as the goth-rocker confirms his forthcoming Heaven Upside Down release. Although specific release details remain under wraps, Manson has drawn comparisons to his previous albums, Antichrist Superstar and Mechanical Animals.

“It’s pretty violent in its nature for some reason,” he adds. “It’s not emotional in the same way. It’s got a chip on its shoulder. I can’t wait for people to hear it – I think they’re going to be quite surprised.”

Manson’s last released The Pale Emperor in 2015.
