He’s supporting the newly released Lest We Forget: The Best Of Marilyn Manson, which compiles hit singles like “The Beautiful People” and his Eurythmics cover, “Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)” and also includes a batch of fan favorites that didn’t make the charts.

“It’s not really a ‘greatest hits’ because I was never really a Top 40 artist,” the singer recently told MTV News.

The tour kicks off October 27 in Las Vegas at House of Blues. The provocative Manson will play mostly large clubs and theatres on the trek – a less extravagant affair than his arena tours of years past. He’s scheduled to wrap December 4 at Atlanta’s Tabernacle.

Incidentally, Manson’s drummer, Ginger Fish, broke his nose and fractured an arm when he took a fall September 24 during the VIVA Comet Awards in Cologne, Germany. Fish’s injuries will take several weeks to heal, but the tour is expected to begin as scheduled.
