Shock rocker Marilyn Manson has announced he will tour across the UK in December 2017. The US superstar will play five dates in total, opening in Manchester and closing at London The SSE Arena Wembley on 9th December, visiting Glasgow, Newport and Wolverhampton in between.

The tour is to promote his tenth studio album. 'Heaven Upside Down'. which is expected to be released in October 2017.

Manson has said that the album is:

"...not very much in any way like 2015s 'The Pale Emperor'. The people who have heard the new songs said it reminded them of their favorite parts of 'Antichrist Superstar' and 'Mechanical Animals' but with a new, different approach.

"It's pretty violent in its nature for some reason, and it's not emotional in the same way. It's got a chip on its shoulder."

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
