Self Destruct
Further Down the Spiral

Self Destruct was the first high-profile tour on which Marilyn Manson performed. After playing in Florida bars for the past four years, Marilyn Manson, having signed a contract with Interscope Records and now close to the completion of their debut album, Portrait of an American Family, left the comfort of Florida in May 1994 as the supporting act for Nine Inch Nails' Self Destruct tour. With two cancellations, Nine Inch Nails headlined 43 Self Destruct concerts, 12 of which Marilyn Manson opened.[1][2]
