Rob Zombie rose to fame as the creative force behind the 1980s and ‘90s metal band White Zombie. His music darts between moody, haunting melodies and the sharp, pounding tones of death metal with lyrics centered around resplendent themes of horror and sci-fi fantasy. Part Alice Cooper and part Black Sabbath, Rob Zombie has carved out a unique niche for himself in the modern metal scene – a commercially viable act with a cool cache among disaffected youth. His first solo release, 1998’s tongue-in-cheek-titled Hellbilly Deluxe sold three millions copies and cracked the top five on the Billboard 200. It spawned two top-ten mainstream rock singles, while a third song, Superbeast, received a Grammy nomination for Best Metal Performance. The album even earned its own rare sequel, Hellbilly 2, twelve years later. In between, Rob Zombie kept busy creating horror-themed tracks that routinely went platinum and entered the top ten album list. Some of his best-known songs, like Dragula and Dead Girl Superstar, contain the same visual imagery as the horror and slasher flicks he enjoys and directs as an accomplished filmmaker. His work ethic and novel approach to the dark music of thrash metal have allowed Rob Zombie to routinely release new albums and videos while earning him a legion of loyal fans and the sort of critical and commercial success that often eludes his musical compatriots.

Rob Zombie’s 2015 tour has all the theatricality and shock value of his movies and the acts he idolizes, from Alice Cooper to KISS. Rob Zombie is a pure showman in the best sense of the word, connecting with his audiences whether large or small. His tour is part carnival sideshow and part rock-god performance, featuring a blistering collection of solo and White Zombie songs, including Dragula, The Lords of Salem, Living Dead Girl, and Super-Charger Heaven. His band features one of the tightest rhythm sections in rock music capable of giving even non-Zombieesque songs from James Brown and Grand Funk Railroad his inimitable horror-laden style. One concert highlight are the video screens displaying reels from films Rob Zombie has directed or thoroughly enjoyed, allowing fans to have fun rattling off the names as the clips roll by. Suburban fans in major metropolitan areas will also appreciate the fact that the tour has been great about finding venues that give them a chance to see him live without heading into the big city. Rob Zombie has always displayed an off-beat and dark sense of humor which is on thoroughly on display during his 2015 tour, but unlike most musicians, he uses it effectively without becoming overbearing.
