DIPOSABLE TEENS / THE WAY I AM (2001)
“The screaming fans, angry protesters, hysteria in the papers - going to these gigs brought with it the teen kudos of causing outrage and panic amongst adults. The noughties had barely begun and two American rock stars were courting controversy to win top spot as the ultimate anti-hero.
In 2001 Marilyn Manson and Eminem took to the stage at London’s Docklands Arena a month apart. In the queue their teenage fans burn bibles, and brandish their middle finger, whilst their parents wonder what happened to their sweet children”.
Manson was in the UK on the European leg of his ‘GUNS, GOD AND GOVERNMENT’ tour, Eminem on his ‘ANGER MANAGEMENT’ tour.
