TV - Top Of The PopsMarilyn Manson appear on BBC TV chart show Top Of The Pops. Manson's voice goes off a little at the end of the song so I'd say the Jonathan Ross performance was the better one.
Friday 13 June
TV - Jonathan Ross showMarilyn Manson appears on BBC1 uk chat show "Friday Night With Jonathan Ross". The band perform mObscene (with one mObscene dancer). Dita was there too. Charlotte Church and Simon Cowell were on before and after Manson. Simon Cowell only had good things to say about Manson so he isn't such a meanie after all!

Tuesday 3 June
On tour - Braehead ArenaMarilyn Manson concert at Braehead Arena (in Renfrew near Glasgow). I know because I was there. Support band Queen Adreena were fine, despite what some others have said. Why didn't I write a review?

TV - Jimmy Kimmel LiveMarilyn Manson are 'musical guests' on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Takes place at the El Capitan Theater (venue was 'a secret' until you succesfully registered to be in the audience).
The band played mObscene and This is the New Shit for the actual show, then came back out and played The Beautiful People for the faithful. Dita sat at the side of the stage watching (black outfit, pink fur stole, little black hat tilted to the side). Gottfried and Cyril Helnwein were around too.Friday, 16 May
