Just like the horror movies he gets so much inspiration from, Rob Zombie is not afraid to revisit a successful past project when there's money to be made. Thus we have the The Hellbilly Deluxe 2 Tour, which will open in Phoenix before hitting the rest of the U.S. around Halloween. Lest you think Zombie's been milking this shtick all along, the press release helpfully pints out that, "Not since 1998's super smash triple platinum HELLBILLY DELUXE has Zombie hit the road under that moniker. So get ready to scream!"
Zombie has not toured since 2007 but brings longtime bandmates John 5, Piggy D, and Tommy Clufetos along for the followup to his breakthrough 1998 album. Since then Zombi has been busy in the horror genre, writing and directing five films, including the new Halloween movie and the animated feature The Haunted World of El Uperbeasto.
