Launched to support Marilyn Manson album Mechanical Animals and Hole's Celebrity Skin, The Beautiful Monsters Tour acted as the first leg of Marilyn Manson's 1999 Rock Is Dead Tour. This particular leg of the tour consisted of 9 dates played in the United States. The shows were co-headlined with Hole. This leg of the tour spanned from February 28, 1999 until March 14, 1999.
The tour was supposed to run for the entire length of the Rock Is Dead tour, during May 1999. The tour was set so that Manson would close the shows in the beginning of the tour and also select the opening band, Monster Magnet, during this time. Starting with the performance in East Rutherford on April 6, Hole was to take over the headlining slot and selection of the opening band, Imperial Teen. The tour garnered a large amount of media attention including a 30-minute MTV special and daily updates of the tour's progression.
Shortly after the tour started, Hole vocalist Courtney Love could no longer take the nightly exchange of insults between herself and Manson during their respective sets and decided to drop off from the tour. Turnouts for the show were primarily Manson fans, who were not very interested in the Hole performance. Hole also pointed to the financial arrangement for the bands (50/50 cost and revenue splitting) was a reason for discontinuing the tour. Hole had relatively little production costs and ending up paying a large amount for Manson's high cost production. The tour was then renamed "Rock Is Dead" which caused a minor dispute with Korn and Rob Zombie as the two were already in the middle of a tour of the same name.
Manson would suffer a hairline fracture on one of his ankles during the imploding tour's final show in Los Angeles. This would cause the first two dates of the "Rock Is Dead Tour" to be cancelled.
