Marilyn Manson, Hole Announce Two Months Worth Of Dates

This weekend Hole and Marilyn Manson will wrap-up stints on the Big Day Out music festival in Australia, but apparently the bands are already focused on their upcoming joint North American tour.

Both Manson and Hole frontwoman Courtney Love phoned in to MTV’s “Total Request Live” on Wednesday afternoon to announce eight weeks worth of dates, beginning on February 28 in Spokane, Washington.

“I think everybody wanted it to happen, but Courtney and I were afraid and we wrestled a little bit,” Manson told MTV News’ John Norris on Thursday. “There was some tussling’ going on, and then I realized what better role models to lead the youth of America into the new millenium than us two, so it had to be done.” [28.8 RealVideo]

Manson and Love announced co-headlining dates through late April with Monster Magnet as their opening act. Ticket prices will hover around $30, and the bands will be visiting
10,000-20,000 seat venues.

More concerts are expected to be released shortly, although tickets for the four confirmed shows will go on sale this weekend.
