Marilyn Manson Banned From Ozzfest

Shock-rocker MARILYN MANSON has been banned from playing at the New York leg of OZZFEST on August 11 (03).

Officials at Six Flags in Darien Lakes, New York applied a clause in its contract with Ozzfest promoter CLEAR CHANNEL ENTERTAINMENT, saying they "decided to pass" on a performance by Manson.

A spokeswoman for Six Flags said the move was a "management decision" and that it is in the park's rights to "restrict artists from performing".

Speaking to ROLLING STONE, Manson counters, "People do acknowledge and recognise me as truly dangerous... I refuse to say that what I do is showbusiness. Only Marilyn Manson, out of KORN, DISTURBED and all these other bands, has been considered inappropriate.

"That's the inability to reconcile art and entertainment."

I am appalled at the way people treat an honerable superstar like Mr. Manson. The only reason why people are this way to him is because they know they will see a show of a lifetime, a show with sooo much more feelings and emotions that people try to hide these days. I myself am looking forward to seeing my first Manson performance, it will be one of the highlights of my life. Why do people think this is "the thing to do" whenever his shows come around. You are taking away something from people like me. I look up to anyone who has the courage that he exudes everytime he steps on that stage. (19 yrs old) Lacey W.
