And that, folks, was how Rob Zombie looked opening up his set. What I didn’t show due to unfriendly lighting was the fact that he emerged from a gigantic, flaming robot.

Rob Zombie knows how to put on a show. The night also included thrash metal band Exodus and legendary headbangers Slayer, but Rob Zombie stole the show.

In the security pit, the pyrotechnics were uncomfortably warm. I can’t imagine performing beside them in full sleeves/makeup/spikes.
