Rob Zombie busted out a couple of metal classics last Tuesday (April 29th) at the House of Blues in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Zombie rocked Metallica‘s 1991 hit “Enter Sandman” before reaching further back into heavy rock history for a live run-through of Diamond Head‘s 1980 New Wave of British Heavy Metal classic “Am I Evil?,” which Metallica also recorded in 1984 and plays live to this day.
- Zombie is currently in the midst of a short 12-stop tour that brings him and his band to Baltimore on Monday night (May 5th).
- Zombie is promoting the upcoming release of his first-ever concert Blu-ray/DVD, The Zombie Horror Picture Show, which arrives on May 19th.
- The disc was filmed at two shows in Texas last year and Zombie told us his approach to the set list for the shoot:
- “We changed the set list on both nights so that we would have a variety, so it’s sort of a little bit of everything. I mean, we obviously stuck with songs people would know and some other stuff that maybe they wouldn’t, but you know, you don’t want to make it obscure — ‘Hey, here’s a home video, 90 minutes of songs you don’t know!'”
- The Zombie Horror Picture Show features Zombie leading his band through longtime favorites like “Living Dead Girl,” “More Human Than Human” and “Dragula” as well as newer songs like “Dead City Radio And The New Gods of Supertown” and Grand Funk‘s “We’re An American Band.”
- A photo book by photographer Rob Fenn will be published as a companion piece to the Blu-ray and DVD.
- Zombie’s fifth solo album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor, came out last April. He plans to begin work on his next studio effort later this month.
