|Marilyn Manson concert chronology|
The Dead to the World Tour was a worldwide concert tour by the American rock band Marilyn Manson. Launched in support of the group's 1996 album Antichrist Superstar, the band played arenas and stadiums from 1996 through 1997. The Dead to the World Tour was the band's fifth tour, counting their early independent touring and their supporting roles for Nine Inch Nails' Self Destruct Tour and Danzig's Danzig 4p Tour. It is also their first tour to span over several legs, eight in total, that alternated between indoor arena shows and outdoor stadium shows both in North America and internationally.
The band was on the tour from September 7, 1996 until September 17, 1997, playing a total of 175 shows throughout Europe, Japan, Oceania, and North and South America. The group quickly gained notoriety for the numerous protests from religious and civic groups such as the American Family Association it garnered as a result of the band's anti-Christian stance.
The tour was managed by major record label Interscope Records. Its name is derived from the song "Dried Up, Tied and Dead to the World". Select footage from the Dead to the World Tour was chronicled in the concert film: Dead to the World on VHS in 1997 and released in 1998.
Marilyn Manson is known for their bombastic and controversial stage theatrics as well as for putting together a massive production. In his tour diary, Manson noted the difference in venues and energy from their previous outings compared to the Dead to the World Tour.
During the Dead to the World tour, the background was a church vitral of Jesus, accompanied by a set of long stairs from which Manson walked down in order to perform the opening piece, "Angel with the Scabbed Wings".
Self-mutilation was a recurring element. For "Man That You Fear" the microphone was covered with white flowers. There was also a snow- or ash-like effect used mostly for "Cake and Sodomy" and "Cryptorchid".
During performances of the album's title song, the stage would be transformed into a mock fascist rally replete with a podium and oversized banners decorated with the Antichrist Superstar logo. Confetti was dropped from the ceiling while Manson ripped the pages off a bible. The band played while wearing chromed stahlhelms. In his autobiography The Long Hard Road Out of Hell, Manson described the performance as simultaneously both social commentary and self-critique meant to highlight how little difference there was between celebrity and demagoguery.
Marilyn Manson played the guitar for "Dried Up, Tied and Dead to the World" and "The Minute of Decay", also plays the pan flute for "Kinderfeld".
The following list contains the most commonly played songs in the order they were most generally performed:
- "Angel with the Scabbed Wings"
- "Get Your Gunn"
- "Cake and Sodomy"
- "Dried Up, Tied and Dead to the World"
- "My Monkey"
