Promoters announced today that two generations of shock rock will commingle at the Buffalo Outer Harbor Concert Site on June 14th. Glam/goth/greasepaint icon Alice Cooper will team with his ideological offspring, Marilyn Manson, as the "Shock Therapy 2013" touches down in Buffalo on that date.
Tickets - $20 advance, $30 day of show - go on sale Friday at noon through Ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster locations, the Town Ballroom box office, (681 Main St.) and the After Dark box office (630 Elmwood Ave.) Tickets can also be charged by phone, via 800-745-3000.
Both Cooper and Manson have been on a creative roll of late, with the former releasing the excellent Bob Ezrin-produced "Welcome 2 My Nightmare" last year, and the latter enjoying the critical acclaim heaped upon his recent "Born Villain," hailed by many as a teturn to the form Manson exhibited on early albums like "Antichrist Superstar" and "Mechanical Animals."
Ok, then. It might get loud. And it moist assuredly will get creepy. - Jeff Miers
