Against All Gods was a worldwide arena tour by American rock band Marilyn Manson. It was the ninth tour the band embarked upon and the sixth to span over multiple legs. It was launched one month after in support of their compilation album, Lest We Forget: The Best Of, which was released on September 28, 2004 in the US. Beginning on October 27, 2004 and lasting until August 31, 2005, the tour included four legs spanning Europe, Japan and North America with a total of 64 completed shows.
Performance and show themes
For this tour, Manson would come onstage swinging a censer (that some mistook for a chandelier), as in the ritual church ceremonies. Projection backdrops for the tour included a burning American flag and a church backdrop, reminiscent of visuals used during the Dead to the World tour, and other themed backdrops that represented the era of the song being performed. At a few shows, robots were utilised during performances of "Tourniquet" and/or "(s)AINT". During some performances of "Tourniquet", Manson used stilts as well.
The costumes for the Against All Gods tour (all designed by Vivienne Westwood) went through two discernible phases. Initially, Manson took to the stage wearing a black jacket with pink trimming and wore a black gothic vest with a long, open black skirt. During "The Dope Show," he donned a black and white striped suit jacket and wore a top hat for "mOBSCENE". At some shows, the black vest also had a silver strip running down it. When the tour moved to Europe, the band sported a Victorian dress style. Though the skirt remained similar, Manson’s vest then sported blue-velvet frills, and his entry jacket had a Black Plague theme (as did the hat worn during "The Nobodies" that was meant to look like a plague doctor's), with real chicken bones sewn on in the shape of a sergeant’s shoulder decoration and a bagful of onions. During "mOBSCENE," Manson donned a military jacket and peak cap.
