Famed guitarist John 5 (Rob Zombie, ex-Marilyn Manson) and his backing band The Creatures, comprised of bassist Ian Ross and drummer Logan Miles Nix, are currently on the road on the first leg of their ‘It’s Alive Tour 2018.’

The spectacle reared its ugly head in New York City on Monday night (Feb. 12th) at Highline Ballroom, where fans jammed to songs off the band’s brand new live album, It’s Alive!, like the intense “Flight of the Vulcan Kelly,” plus “Six Hundred and Sixty Six Pickers in Hell, CA,” “Here’s to the Crazy Ones,” “This Is My Rifle,” “Hell Haw,” “Season of the Witch,” and more. No John 5 show is complete without shredtastic cover songs, and the man delivered, ripping through tracks from the likes of Jerry Reed, Metallica, and an epic show-stopping medley.

Check out exclusive shots from the NYC concert, including a few snaps of openers Celebrity Mugshot, in the gallery below. John 5‘s lengthy U.S. trek continues through late April. All upcoming gigs are listed at the end of this post.
