Rob Zombie brought his heavy metal-performance art-shock-horror theater to Lakewood Amphitheatre in Atlanta, 6 May 2016, along with the ever-entertaining Piggy D. on bass, John 5 on guitar, and Ginger Fish on drums. Part concert and part visual art (that sometimes you want to turn your head away from) through the elements on stage and screen, Zombie played their set to the hordes of the adoring in between Saint Asonia and Disturbed. With a fan base probably equally divided between his musical projects and his movies (The Devils Rejects and others), Zombie delivered both audibly and visually.
Tour continues tonight at the sold-out Ascend Amphitheatre in Nashville, and continuing until the as-of-now final show at the Forum in London on October 17. See http://robzombie.com/tour-dates for full schedule and ticketing agents.

A chance front-row ticket to see The Pogues in 2008 led me to curiously wonder who the photographer was in the aisle, who obviously had permission to be there with her pro camera. Those few minutes of seeing this person doing a job I hadn’t really noticed before opened a picture window for me and I immediately knew, “I want to do THAT.” And that was the start. When I’m not shooting bands, I’m probably still seeing them. Rail, baby, rail. It’s an addiction. See my photography, design, and retouching at maryelle-stclare.com.
