The Masters of Madness Tour (also known as the Shock Therapy Tour) was the double bill North American concert tour co-headlined by American rock bands Alice Cooper and Marilyn Manson. Launched in support of Cooper's 26th full-length studio LP, 2011's Welcome 2 My Nightmare and Manson's 8th full-length studio LP, 2012's Born Villain, the tour visited stadiums from June 1, 2013 through July 7, 2013.
Prior to the commencement of the tour, Manson performed two shows as part of the tour without the company of Cooper, the first was in San Diego, and the second was in Tempe, on May 29, 2013, and May 30, 2013, respectively. Manson and Cooper kicked off their co-headlined tour on June 1, 2013, at the Isleta Amphitheater in Albuquerque. The opening act for this tour was a Hollywood, CA band, Picture Me Broken.
