In what may be the biggest shock rock show of all time, Alice Cooper and Marilyn Manson are co-headlining at Merriweather Post Pavillion on June 17, with Richmond's elaborately costumed GWAR as openers. Not for the squeamish, fake blood and revolting stage props will undoubtedly abound. Tickets ($40-$75) go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketfly.
