VIDEO: Rob Zombie performs Beatles classic with Marilyn Manson and Nikki Sixx at Ozzfest

Rob Zombie was joined by Marilyn Manson and Nikki Sixx to perform The Beatles classic, “Helter Skelter”, at Ozzfest 2018 at The Forum in Los Angeles, CA on New Year’s Eve, and video from the event is streaming online.

“The one and only @NikkiSixx helped us bring in the New Year at LA Forum,” Zombie tweeted after the show alongside a photo of the pair onstage.

Zombie and Manson released their own version of the 1968 track in sync with the launch of their summer tour of North America, and delivered their live debut of the tune on opening night in Detroit, MI.

The song’s release helped Zombie deliver the No. 3 Rock News Story Of The Year as part of the 2018 hennemusic Rock News Awards.

Zombie and Manson performed separately at the first-ever, special one-night edition of Ozzy’s annual festival, which began in 1996; headlined by the Black Sabbath legend, the evening also featured sets by Korn’s Jonathan Davis and Body Count featuring Ice-T.

Zombie has already announced a number of festival appearances for 2019, including Jacksonville, FL’s Welcome To Rockville and Rockingham, NC’s Epicenter in May, ahead of summer European gigs that will begin at the UK’s Download event in mid-June.

The rocker’s most recent studio release is 2016's “The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser”, which debuted and peaked at No. 6 on the US Billboard 200.
