Support for Hole's Beautiful Monsters Tour Rock Is Dead Tour: North American Leg Rock Is Dead Tour: European/Japan Festival Leg

The Rock Is Dead Tour: North American Leg was the second leg of Marilyn Manson's 1999 Rock Is Dead Tour. The tour initially started with Manson as co-headliners for Hole's Beautiful Monsters tour, but following Hole's departure from the tour, it was renamed Rock Is Dead. This caused a minor controversy as Korn and Rob Zombie were already in the middle of a tour of the same name, even though Manson's song pre-dated Korn and Zombie use of the phrase.

This particular leg of the tour consisted of 28 dates played out of 34 planned U.S. tour dates, spanning from March 17, 1999 until April 28, 1999.

The first three performances were canceled after Manson sprained his ankle during the final Beautiful Monsters show in Los Angeles. After the Columbine incident, Manson continued performances until another incident at the April 28th show, after which he canceled the remaining tour dates for the North American tour.[1]
