Ticket alert: Shock rocker Marilyn Manson coming home to South Florida

Marilyn Manson, the shock rocker born Brian Warner, will bring his prince-of-darkness swagger Oct. 30 to the Hard Rock Event Center in Hollywood.

Tickets cost $35-$90 and will go on sale to the public at 9 a.m. Friday, July 20, via Ticketmaster.com and pay-by-phone (1-800-745-3000), with a presale starting at 10 a.m. July 19 (password: DREAMS). VIP packages cost $199-$450.

Warner, then a Boca Raton resident, formed the South Florida goth band in 1989 with guitarist Scott Mitchell Putesky, who died in October. Marilyn Manson is currently on a 30-date co-headlining summer tour with Rob Zombie. Manson’s fall tour, which supports its 10th album, “Heaven Upside Down,” will kick off Oct. 22 in Nashville before wrapping up on Halloween in Orlando.

Over the past year, Manson, 49, has made headlines for bizarre onstage incidents. Last October at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom, a pair of prop guns fell on the singer midway through his hit cover of the Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This),” an injury that prompted Manson to cancel a string of concert dates.

In November, Manson, confined to a wheelchair after the gun prop incident, waived a faux assault rifle at concertgoers during a concert in San Bernardino, Calif., site of a 2015 mass shooting. During a February show in Huntington, N.Y., Manson rambled incoherently, appearing to have a breakdown as he implored his audience to tell him they loved him. (He then knocked over an amplifier and left the stage.)

According to a Consequence of Sound review of Marilyn Manson’s concert last week in Detroit, the singer performed a set light on material from “Heaven Upside Down,” leaning instead on songs from the band’s 1996 album, “Antichrist Superstar.”
