Well I don't know about Alice Cooper, but Manson is struggling to finish a one hour show per night. It's sad he doesn't give up drinking and take some vocal lessons so he won't sound like choking anymore.
This could be interesting. Last time I saw Marilyn Manson live was in Nottingham back in December 2008, which proved to be enjoyable despite the lackluster vocals. Last time I saw Alice Cooper was at BOA 2012, and he was fucking incredible. The man sure knows how to put on a show! Manson and Cooper touring together doesn't sound that bad to me, but I have heard a lot of bad things about MM's stage performances of late...
I saw Manson earlier this year and it was a great show. I really didn't notice if his voice sucked while I was there. Funny story: he threw down his mic after every song, and one time it bounced into the audience and someone stole it. It was a $2,000 mic and the venue was pissed.
