The Mechanical Animals Tour: Big Day Out Festival was the second and final leg of Marilyn Manson's 1998-1999 Mechanical Animals Tour, and also the band's first time billed on the Big Day Out tour. This particular leg of the tour consisted of 6 dates performed in New Zealand and Australia. This leg of the tour spanned from January 15, 1999 until January 31, 1999.
In a February 9, 1999 post by Manson on MarilynManson.net's message board, Manson explained "if anyone wants to relay this particular statement to other newsgroups. 5 out of 6 Big Day outs were completely sold out and the one that wasn't had over 25,000 fans. Just because one show went bad doesn't mean our headlining festival of Australia (we did choose our slot, because we were the headliners) was a failure. It was a huge success and I thank the fans who came to see us. We only stopped our show because a glass bottle cut my leg open and Pogo got a concussion, we weren't booed off. I wish we were. It's like the old days. That's rock for you."
