I've never really understood how someone could possibly think they ever deserve a refund for a live performance, no matter how unenjoyable it may have been for them, but here we are. Apparently, people are perilously pissed at the God of Fuck for his recent performance in Huntington, New York..
How pissed, you ask? Exactly this much:
Marilyn Manson's sold-out show at the Paramount does indeed appear to have included extended bits of mid-song rambling and a general disregard for time, but shouldn't both of those things be expected to occasionally pop off at a show? As Brooklyn Vegan reported, some attendees have even taken to the venue’s Instagram page to express their severely misguided desire for a refund. Others took to Reddit, including user gimp1124, who seemed surprised that a rock star might be wasted:
There's no more to it. I had the meet and greet. He was wasted. He was worse on stage. Rambled on and on about us loving him. Here's the set Reflecting Deep six Rambling on and on for minutes Disposable teens (cut short) He's off stage for 5-10 Back and rambles for 20 min about who knows what Saturnalia (poorly played riff over and over for 10+min into lunchbox riff with him doing spoken word for 15 min. Stumbled off stage. Band finished lunchbox the right way. Gods gonna cut you down house music
So not only did we get short show in nyc when dummy pulled the guns down now this. At least the tix are only 95$
And now, of course, some Instagram posts from the night in question:
Manson is currently on tour in support of last year's critically acclaimed album Heaven Upside Down. The tour was briefly interrupted last year when Manson was injured during a performance. At some point this year, he is expected to contribute to Lil Uzi Vert's freestyle rock album alongside frequent collaborator Tyler Bates.
