“Poison” – Live at the Enmore Theatre in Sidney
Alice Cooper taught rock 'n' roll how to be simultaneously frightful and fearless. For more than 40 years, the horror-showman’s killer riffs, menacing vocals, and Grand Guignol stage theatrics have kept a gory wrench lodged in the pop-music machine. Making alter egos and men named Alice cool since the late 1960s, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer first slashed his way into the classic-rock pantheon with immortal hits such as “I’m Eighteen” and “School’s Out.” As his music occupied the airwaves, his stage shows became legendary, loaded with enough carnage, guillotines, mutilated baby dolls, and faux executions to satiate fans’ bloodlust and petrify parents.
When Marilyn Manson’s brooding version of the Eurythmics hit “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” hit the airwaves in 1995, it was the sound of a bona fide shock rocker being born. The singer/performance artist further solidified this status with the twisted rock opera, Antichrist Superstar, driven by the tribal drums and hissing vocals of smash single “The Beautiful People.” But Manson has always valued substance just as much as terror and theatricality. He often laces his industrial metal with social commentary on religion and America’s dual obsessions with beauty and violence. The juxtaposition is fully realized in his stage name, a combination of sex symbol Marilyn Monroe and murderous cult leader Charles Manson. During his live shows, Manson unleashes his boundless energy across the stage, strutting in black bustiers and ripped stockings as his gravelly wail rivets onlookers and awakens napping roadies. Fans can expect hits from his flesh-bound fake book, as well as fanged earworms from 2012’s Born Villain.
