Shock rocker Marilyn Manson is heading to Britain to promote his new album.

The scary singer is to perform a one-off show at the Brixton Academy on 4 June 2003. He had already announced a 2 June show at the GLASGOW BRAEHEAD ARENA.

His new album, THE GOLDEN AGE OF GROTESQUE is due on May 12. Manson is promising 'grotesque burlesque entertainment at the shows.

He says, "It's going to be like Weimar Berlin before it got censored, it's gonna be decadent and entertaining, and I like that. I like wearing a tie."
