Hey Cruel World...Tour
Twins of Evil Tour

Hey Cruel World...Tour is the thirteenth tour by American rock band Marilyn Manson. It was launched in support of their eighth studio album, Born Villain, and marks the group's ninth tour to spread over multiple legs spanning over multiple countries. Rumors about the tour's itinerary began as early as June 3, 2011, when the Brazilian edition of the Portuguese broadsheet newspaper Destak published that agents for the band had finalized negotiations for the group to tour in Brazil and other South American countries as part of the SWU Music & Arts Festival in November 2011.[1] Despite this, the band's supposed inclusion in the roster failed to materialize.[1]

The tour's 2012 itinerary was confirmed on October 2011 to include an Australian leg from late February to early March as part of the 5-day 2012 Soundwave music festival.[2] After the Australian leg the tour will continue in Asia, North America and Europe. The tour includes Manson's first performances in the United States since mid-2009.[3] Manson announced the tour's title on his official website's journal a week before the tour began.[4]

Set list[edit]

Broadcasts & Recordings[edit]

Marilyn Mason's set was recorded at the ROCK AM RING festival in Germany on 1 June 2012, but so far only three song performances (Hey Cruel World, Personal Jesus and Antichrist Superstar) have emerged online.

A video album has been in the works since 2007, with concert footage being recorded at all subsequent tours since that time, It's unknown if the Hey Cruel World Tour Is included in this project or If the project has been cancelled due to Manson's split from Interscope.

The tour received a substantial upgrade during its stint on the Twins of Evil Tour. In an Interview with Kerrang "Manson says that not only has the fan reaction been great, but his own enjoyment of the current lineup on tour has him thinking about a potential concert album. “I think I’d really like to record a live album of this tour,” says Manson. “I know that we’re doing something later this year … but I just like the way things sound live now.”" - Kerrang.
