Review Tuesday: TWINS OF EVIL: THE SECOND COMING TOUR 2018 @ Jones Beach Theater

Jones Beach Theater, NY

Surprisingly, Mrs. Bax0jayz is a huge Rob Zombie fan.  Couple that detail to when Ticketmaster had their $13 sale on Friday the 13th earlier in the year and she grabbed tixx to go!

I left work early. Hot and sunny. Picked up a friend - hot and sunny. Picked up Mrs. Bax0jayz - hot and sunny. Got to the show - gloomy and chilly with the smell of rain in the wind. DAMN. 

We went to our seat and the opening act was already performing...

None of us ever heard of this Canadian band. They sounded pretty good though. From what I fouond online they usually play a three song set (?!?!). Either that or people only ever knew three songs of theirs. At any rate, they had a very good sound, better than most opening bands. They didn't overdo their levels so their sound was very clean. The vocals might've been a tad low, but that is my only complaint.

  1. Infection
  2. Further
  3. Self-Inflicted Oppression
They put on a good set, and left the stage graciously thanking the headlining acts for bringing them on tour. They left the stage around 7:35. The crews cleared them off and set up for Marilyn Manson when the announcement came at 7:50, "Due to incoming HEAVY WEATHER we ask everyone to go back into the grandstands and take shelter. Once the storm goes by and it's safe, the show will commence IN ITS ENTIRETY."

So we waited. 

And waited. 

And waited until nearly 10 PM when they announced that there was no end in sight for the storm and that the show was officially cancelled. GO HOME. Great.
