Marilyn Manson shared that he will perform at Coachella this weekend via his social media account. He also had a shocking revelation involving the festival.
In his post, the 49-year-old singer-songwriter said that he was once banned from performing at the music festival. However, Manson did not reveal why he was not allowed to showcase his talent at Coachella years ago.
I never thought I would play at a festival I was banned from. But... Yoshiki invited me to join the stage with XJAPAN. You don’t want to miss this one— Marilyn Manson (@marilynmanson) April 18, 2018
Manson will be joining X Japan during the second set of the festival. Last week, the Japanese metal superstars took the stage at the Indio festival, where they performed alongside Wes Borland, Richard Fortus, and Miya.
Marilyn Manson's 'Heaven Upside Down' Album
Aside from his upcoming performance at Coachella, Manson is busy preparing for his summer tour with Rob Zombie. Last month, he dropped the music video for "Tattooed in Reverse," one of the songs featured in his Heaven Upside Down album.
Other songs in the compilation are "Revelation #12," "SAY10," "WE KNOW WHERE YOU F****** LIVE," "KILL4ME," "Saturnalia," "JE$U$ CRI$IS," "Blood Honey," "Heaven Upside Down," and "Threats of Romance."
Charlyne Yi's Harassment Accusations
In February, Charlyne Yi accused Manson of harassment. Yi also revealed that Manson once made racist comments about her.
"Ugh don't even get me started. Yes, this happened a long time ago -- on the last season of House, [Manson] came on set to visit because he was a huge fan of the show & he harassed just about every woman asking if we were going to scissor, rhino & called me a China man. I genuinely hope he gets help," said Yi.
Singer Has An Onstage Melt Down
In the same month, Manson had an on-stage meltdown during a New York concert that took place in The Paramount at Huntington. After performing a song, the musician urged his fans to clap for him. The singer performed the song with half-mumbled words before he stormed off the stage.
One person from Manson's live audience recapped the show.
"Once it got to 10 minutes of begging for adoration and no music, I think we all started to realize something was wrong. Once he was temporarily satisfied, it didn't improve. They would start songs only to screech them to a halt a minute in. There were very drawn out versions of songs where Manson mostly rambled on about or lack of love and other bizarre things," said the concertgoer.
