TVD Ticket Giveaway: Alice Cooper, Marilyn Manson, and GWAR at Merriweather Post Pavilion, 6/17

Eighteen and you like it? Star of the Dope show? Bloodthirsty? Did you know fate was thinking of you and stars have aligned?

Thrill seekers Alice Cooper, Marilyn Manson, and GWAR are coming to the Merriweather Post Pavilion and we’ve got tickets to give away to a couple lucky folks who love dark and scary things.

Rolling the shock and awe game way before the government made it cool, these three acts are known for making eyes roll and skin pale. Alice Cooper impaled baby dolls with a sword and lopped off heads, Manson…well, is Manson, and GWAR launches massive amounts of (fake) blood, urine, and other bodily fluids into the audience. How is this a show you wouldn’t want to see?

How can you get your hands on a couple of tickets to one of the most over the top shows around?  It’s simple! In the comments below, tell us your favorite stage antic from any artist from any era.

We’re going with KISS’ Gene Simmons spitting blood and breathing fire. I mean, how could we not?

One winner for a pair of lawn seats will be chosen on Friday, 3/15 at 9AM. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10AM right here!

    I’m going with GWAR killing Sarah Palin on stage, much needed and need I say more! This is one awesome lineup! Yes pleazse!

  • dechtakaar

    My favorite gimmick is either Devin Townsend’s Ziltoid TV/Radio he does during setup, or Powerglove with all their costumey nerdiness especially when they toss out plastic swords for their song “Metal Kombat”.

  • peebers

    my all time fave was Kool Keith throwing out bags, containing a grape drink box one chicken wing and a wet nap, into the crowd, yelling “you can’t keep Africa down!”

  • Jilll

    Oh, it’s gotta be Ozzy biting the head off of a bat!

  • msmale319666

    Oderus Urungus from Gwar shooting jizz all over the crowd with his jumbo phallus

  • JustMark64

    Angus Young mooning the crowd!

  • SteveWass

    I would say my favourite stage antic has to be Alice getting killed on stage. Particularly the guillotine !!

  • JHo

    Snooki’s fetus ripped out by GWAR lol!

  • BooknShortLatte

    Manson tearing pages out of the Bible, of course.

  • jenamr

    it was Manson and the bible… until I just read what kool keith did. lmfao

  • jgk1971

    Rick Simms and a dancing transvestite, or maybe the Honcho Overload creamed corn incident…

  • LitaKat

    Oderus and his usual cum shot all over the crowd while singing sick of you!

  • AliciaBackus

    Manson at the podium, tearing apart the Bible. My absolute favorite! Love him! Can’t wait to see him and Cooper together fondly! Whether I win free tickets or not, I’ll be there!

  • star13Roseann

    Gene Simmons Demon blood spitting God of Thundar & Fire breathing dragon is my all time favorite on stage antics!! He just can’t be beat!

  • HazelAlvarado

    Alice during “Department of Youth” where he slams his baton up and down with the beat of the song right after he says “And we’ve never heard of Billy Sunday Damon Runyon manners or Couth”

    The Amazing Randi as dentist on the Billion Dollar babies Tour – – I am THAT old and remember it – – – great tour

  • LadyMoon

    This is very hard for me. Alice always has the best antics on stage for me… Alice being a Frankenstein monster and then he was shocked and rebuilt as the real Alice Cooper. I love him in ballad of Dwight Frye, the one concert where there were two girls I believe one of them was supposed to be Brittney Spears was funny. But it is very hard to pick one, they are all so wonderful.

  • ChanceMcGuigan

    Arthur Brown lighting himself on fire way back in the day. Nothing beats a classic… I also particularly liked when Gwar skinned Hitler alive… that was cool too…

  • JohnVanSteen

    Alice punching a blow-up doll of Britney Spears in the face

  • JdBoucher

    Giant Alien Eddie popping up in Iron Maiden’s Final Frontier tour was pretty amazing 😀

  • FadGadget

    Tiny Stone Henge from “This Is Spinal Tap.”
