Every generation needs an artist who pushes the envelope and stretches the limits of acceptability to the extreme and beyond. Take the rebellious spirit of punk and the shocking theatrics of glam rock and it would only begin to explain Marilyn Manson. The band's short history is steeped in infamy. The rumours, near-riots, banning of concerts, and outrageous stage antics all culminate on THE LAST TOUR ON EARTH, the band's first live album. Marilyn Manson's version of "Sweet Dreams", which made the band bastard darlings of MTV and radio, gets an explosive reaction from the live audience. Manson's critique of modern-day shallowness comes to life in "The Dope Show". In his introduction before "I Don't Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me)", Marilyn Manson sounds eerily like Jim Morrison as he describes a previous night's "dream". The most chilling moment of THE LAST TOUR ON EARTH is during "Irresponsible Hate Anthem" as Manson leads the audience in a mantra of, "we hate love, we love hate". Even as protesters demonstrate outside of the concert venue, Manson has the crowd chanting in defiance against them. His fearless resistance against his nay-sayers defines the true essence that makes him a star.
