Clarkston residents beware — two of the most devilish '90s rockers are headed to your town this summer.

Shock rockers Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson will embark on the "Twins of Evil" tour — a 29-date co-headlining stint that kicks off at DTE Energy Music Theatre on Wednesday, July 11. They're touring in support of their newest records, Rob Zombie's The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser from 2016 and Manson's Heaven Upside Down from 2017.



This show is one of four paired summer concert tours being promoted as Live Nation's "Ticket to Rock" program at DTE Energy Music Theatre. The others include Godsmack and Shinedown on July 22, Avenged Sevenfold with Prophets of Rage on Aug. 7, and Five Finger Death Punch and Breaking Benjamin on Sept. 1.

Manson has found himself in the news lately for bizarre behavior beyond his usual standards. He's been accused of sexual harassment and making racist remarks by former House actress Charlyne Yi and recently had an onstage meltdown in front of a crowd in Long Island.



The date tickets will go on sale for the "Twins of Evil" tour has not yet be announced.

While we wait for tickets, here's a video from a 1997 local television broadcast profiling Manson's fans before the band's show at DTE Energy Music Theatre 21 years ago.
