VIDEO: Alice Cooper & Marilyn Manson launch Masters Of Madness tour

Alice Cooper and Marilyn Manson kicked off their Masters Of Madness: Shock Therapy Tour Saturday in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The pair were joined by openers Picture Me Broken, a band fronted by Layla Allman, the daughter of Gregg Allman.

Manson performed an abbreviated greatest hits set, featuring tracks like “The Dope Show,” “The Beautiful People,” and covers of “Personal Jesus” (Depeche Mode) and The Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This).”

Alice opened his headlining set through a curtain of fire before delivering one classic after another from his extensive catalog.

For the night’s encores, Cooper was joined by Robin Zander and Rick Neilsen of Cheap Trick for “School’s Out,” and Manson himself returned to the stage for “I’m Eighteen.”

Cooper and Manson will be on the road together for the month of June.
