On Friday, rapper Travis Scott made the last minute announcement of who would be playing his annual Astro World festival in Houston the following day (Saturday, November 9th.) One of the acts announced shock rocker Marilyn Manson.
Hip hop Twitter was amused, confused, bemused and ready to see how things turned out. The performance was last night and let’s look at the video tape.
Youtube channel All Urban Central compiled a video of various social media clips of Manson arriving to the festival, and to say concert goers were shocked to see him would be an understatement:
As for the performance itself, based on video footage made available as of this posting, it looked like a pretty typical Manson affair. The crowd even sang along during his cover of “Sweet Dreams,” likely the most recognizable song Manson produced outside of “The Beautiful People.”
Overall, it looks like Marilyn Manson had a great time at the show. He posted these photos, hanging out with Travis Scott and Houston’s police department.
