Marilyn Manson concert chronology

The Hey Cruel World...Tour, by American rock band Marilyn Manson, supported their eighth full-length studio LP, 2012's Born Villain. The band's thirteenth tour was their ninth to spread over multiple legs, spanning North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Oceania. The tour was named after the opening song of the album.

Rumors about the tour's itinerary began as early as June 3, 2011, when the Brazilian edition of Portuguese broadsheet newspaper Destak published that agents for the band had finalized negotiations for the group to tour Brazil and other South American countries as part of the SWU Music & Arts Festival in November 2011.[1] Despite this, the band's supposed inclusion in the roster failed to materialize.[1]

The tour's 2012 itinerary was confirmed in October 2011 to include an Australian leg from late February to early March as part of the 5-day 2012 Soundwave music festival.[2] After the Australian leg the tour continued to Asia, North America and Europe, including Manson's first performances in the United States since mid-2009.[3]

"We had to get our fuck on…" Manson told Kerrang! when the tour hit the UK. "That's an American term. We've been playing a lot of Antichrist Superstar – stuff that makes us happiest. In turn, that'll make the audience happier. [Of the newer songs] I love playing 'Pistol Whipped', because I play guitar like a complete asshole."[4]

Broadcasts & Recordings

Manson's set was recorded at the ROCK AM RING festival in Germany on 1 June 2012, but only three song performances (Hey Cruel World, Personal Jesus and Antichrist Superstar) have emerged online.[citation needed]

A video album has been in the works since 2007, with footage recorded at all tours since that time. It is unknown if the Hey Cruel World... Tour is included in this project or if the project has been cancelled owing to Manson's split from Interscope.[citation needed]

Twins Of Evil

Further information: Twins of Evil Tour

The Hey Cruel World... Tour featured a 'tour within a tour': the Twins of Evil Tour, a double bill coheadlined by Rob Zombie and Manson. Supporting each act's respective albums – 2010's Hellbilly Deluxe 2 and Born Villain – the tour visited arenas from September 28, 2012 through December 12, 2012. It was conceived as a follow-up to Zombie's Hellbilly Deluxe 2 World Tour and consisted of two legs, covering the United States and Europe.

In an interview with Kerrang, Manson shared his desire to record a live album on the Twins of Evil Tour. He noted the enthusiastic audience reaction, his satisfaction with the band lineup and "the way things sound live now."[citation needed]
