While he may be busy promoting the September release of his highly anticipated Munsters prequel, Rob Zombie is also busting out a long string of dates on his current Freaks on Parade tour with supporting acts Mudvayne, Static-X and Powerman 5000 (fronted by Zombie's younger brother Spider One). Last night in Indiana, the "Dragula" mastermind employed the help of the latter two acts for a rousing rendition of the Ramones classic "Blitzkrieg Bop" in an apparent attempt to reward the crowd after some technical issues.
"Since the show got a little fucked up tonight," Zombie captioned an Instagram video of the event, "I thought it was only right to bring out @officialpowerman5000 and @staticxofficial to jam with us... Turned out to be an epic night."
The video shows the acts converging onstage as Zombie shouts, "We got any motherfucking punk rockers in the crowd tonight?" He starts the ad hoc supergroup with a four-count and they launch into the 1976 punk anthem, complete with audience backup during the iconic "Hey ho, let's go" intro and chorus. Zombie's signature elaborate stage set-up glows red with retro-neon found footage flashing throughout, and he tells the musicians, "Don't leave yet!" while they launch into their next song.
You can catch the Freaks on Parade tour now through August 21st, or see Rob Zombie at the Louder Than Life and Aftershock festivals later this fall — a full list of dates is available on his website.
