Here’s the 16-song set list from Friday’s sold-out Mystic Lake Casino concert by Marilyn Manson. Click here for the full review here. Four of the songs came off the new record, “The Pale Emperor,” and the rest were all over the discography map. Considering all the stuff that didn’t get played, isn’t it time Mr. Warner and the band drop “Sweet Dreams” (definitely one of the more boring numbers of the night)?
The Mystic Lake Showroom wasn’t a bad place to catch the decadent rock showman – certainly better than the wretched Roy Wilkins Auditorium, if not Myth in Maplewood, both places he’s played in recent years. The big-boom sound on Friday was a bit muddy at times, and the seated layout stifled some of the energy (neither problems at Myth). Not sure metal should become a mainstay at the big casino, but Manson fans seemed to enjoy the change of scenery and camp value it offered.
