The Mechanical Animals Tour: European Festival Leg was supposed to be the first leg of Marilyn Manson's 1998-1999 Mechanical Animals Tour. This particular leg of the tour consisted of 6 dates to be played at various European festivals. The performances were what the band planned as the debut of follow-up material to Antichrist Superstar two months before the release of Mechanical Animals. This leg of the tour spanned from June 25, 1998 until July 12, 1999.

Reportedly, drummer Ginger Fish became ill with mononucleosis.[1] This led the band to cancel the European festival leg and postpone the beginning of the tour to October 25, 1998.[1] Also when Ginger became ill, Zim Zum decided to leave the band. He was replaced with John 5.



All of the shows during this leg of the tour were canceled, and so a typical setlist cannot be provided.
