With spring underway, it feels like every artist is rushing to announce their performance plans to fans. Even, Marilyn Manson is eager to return to the stage. The “Tattooed In Reverse” musician, real name Brian Warner took to his official social media pages to unveil his forthcoming tour.

Beginning in August, he is set to launch his tour with Five Finger Death Punch and special guest Slaughter To Prevail. The string of shows will mark his first official tour run since the mountain of sexual assault allegations including his ex-partner, Evan Rachel Wood.

After getting wind of the performance news, a representative for one of Manson’s accusers reach out to Rolling Stone to issue a statement. James Vagnini, the lawyer for accuser Ashley Walters believes the shows are the result of his dwindling funds. “Given all the litigation and investigations he has been the subject of, he probably needs the money,” he said.

Manson denies Wood’s claims. Read his full response via his attorney Howard King below.

Of all the false claims that Evan Rachel Wood has made about Brian Warner, her imaginative retelling of the making of the ‘Heart-Shaped Glasses’ music video 15 years ago is the most brazen and easiest to disprove, because there were multiple witnesses.

Evan was not only fully coherent and engaged during the three-day shoot but also heavily involved in weeks of pre-production planning and days of post-production editing of the final cut. The simulated sex scene took several hours to shoot with multiple takes using different angles and several long breaks in between camera setups.

Brian did not have sex with Evan on that set, and she knows that is the truth.
