to muchmusic usa on Halloween
Hosts Special 1-Hour Edition of Uranium,
Premiering All Hallow’s Eve, October 31 at 9 PM ET
New York, NY – October 22, 2002 – muchmusic usa, the nation’s only viewer-driven all music network, announced today that provocative Marilyn Manson will host a special edition of the network’s daily metal music showcase, Uranium. The special, entitled Uranium with Marilyn Manson, will premiere Halloween night, October 31 at 9 PM ET.
Manson is taking on the role of mmusa VJ and circus master for the special, joining Uranium‘s bodacious hostess Juliya and a slew of outrageously colorful characters clad in fetish gear to celebrate all things Manson. The Uranium special was shot at an in-studio party for Manson’s friends and fans, all who came attired in burlesque gear inspired by the artist’s most recent obsession – decadent ’30s Berlin culture.
Manson created his own play-list for the one-hour special, boasting a walk through of his greatest videos and intriguing entries from established and emerging artists that he thinks are worth a watch. Marilyn also used the special as a forum to showcase selected pieces of his distinctive watercolor paintings.
Uranium features the latest and greatest from the harder edge of the rock universe, metal and thrash favorites like Tool, Slipknot, System of a Down and Nine Inch Nails, with muchmusic’s own Juliya as host, in studio and on-the-road. The show airs Mondays-Thursdays from 7:00 – 7:30 PM ET (repeats at 1 AM ET) and on Saturdays at Midnight and 12:30 AM ET.
