Hey, Cruel World... Tour was Marilyn Manson thirteenth tour. It was also the band's ninth tour to span over multiple legs, Rumors about the tour's itinerary began as early as June 3, 2011, when the Brazilian edition of the Portuguese broadsheet newspaper Destak published that agents for the band had finalized negotiations for the group to tour in Brazil and other South American countries as part of the SWU Music & Arts Festival in November 2011.[1] Despite this, the band's supposed inclusion in the roster failed to materialize.[1] The tour's 2012 itinerary was confirmed on October 2011 to include an Australian leg from late February to early March as part of the 5-day 2012 Soundwave music festival.[2] After the Australian leg the tour will continue in Asia, North America and Europe. The tour includes Manson's first performances in the United States since mid-2009.[3]

Manson announced the tour's title on his official website's journal a week before the tour began.[4]
