The frighteningly talented Rob Zombie, the singer-songwriter, musician and film director who's turned his obsession with the horror genre into movie and music gold, returns to his rock-show roots on his latest tour, complete with his signature pyrotechnics and mind-blowing SFX. A seven-time Grammy nominee, the rocker's fifth solo album, the intriguingly titled Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor, debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200, spinning off a pair of successful singles, "Dead City Radio and the New Gods of Super Town," and a cover of "We're an American Band." Meanwhile, Zombie's had phenomenal success as the writer-director of six highly grossing horror films. But there's nothing like experiencing this artist's singular vision and sound live on stage.
