Rob Zombie, is the original frontman of the 90s heavy metal band, White Zombie. The band really broke it big after appearing in the MTV adult animated show Beavis and But-head. The cartoon duo enjoyed the group's "Welcome to Planet M.F." from White Zombie's 1992 album La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Vol. 1, and Beavis declared that "White Zombie rules!" sales of La Sexorcisto quadrupled, and the album hit the Top 40 of the Billboard album chart.
Zombie’s solo career was even more successful, steadily injecting more horror and sci-fi into his music and stage production and garnering hits like "Living Dead Girl," "Dragula," and "Foxy, Foxy." Over the past two years, Rob Zombie has headlined 11 festivals. However, the outrageous shock-rocker hasn’t mounted a proper tour since 2019. Freaks on Parade will also serve as the unofficial live debut of Zombie’s 2021 album, The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy.
He is also widely regarded as a skilled horror film director, helming his own works like House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects, while also successfully rebooting the Halloween franchise. This year, Zombie confirmed that he will direct a film adaptation of The Munsters television series.
Experimental metal band, Mudvayne formed almost 30 years ago in 1996 and rose to success in the late 90s. In 2010, the band went on hiatus to allow lead singer Chad Grey and guitarist Greg Tribbet to tour with Hellyeah. Mudvayne announced in April 2021 that they had reunited and would play their first shows in 12 years, followed by their first US tour in 13 years in 2022, and the members have reportedly discussed the possibility of new material. Known for their face paint, wild stage presence and sonic experimentation, it makes sense that the heavy metal band will join Mr. Zombie on a nationwide tour this summer.
