Tuesday 24 June

TV - Top Of The Pops

Marilyn 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 show

Marilyn 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!

Awards show - Metal Hammer magazine

Metal Hammer hold their first annual awards (at the Forum in Kentish Town, London). Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones presents Marilyn Manson with The Golden God Award (for Best Frontman/Frontwoman - but is he the one or both?).

"Bands and audience members intermingled all night, with the charge downstairs being lead by Pogo from Marilyn Manson."

The charge to the bar that is... Well he is called Mr Bier, after all.

Marilyn Manson concert at Braehead Arena (in Renfrew near Glasgow). I know because I was there. happy smiley Support band Queen Adreena were fine, despite what some others have said. Why didn't I write a review?
