Rob Zombie has posted a "few moments" online from his band's upcoming concert DVD, writing at his Instagram account, "Yes, I know the quality is bad. The DVD will look sweet!" The disc will feature footage filmed during stops on last year's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Mayhem Festival tour in Houston on August 3rd, 2013 and Dallas on August 4th.

Zombie has never released a concert DVD before and told an Albany radio station that he always thought of doing one as a "huge nuisance," adding, "After the show is done, I don't care. I don't want to relive it . . . I never wanna hear about it again, I never wanna see it again. Like, I never watch anything -- a TV show I've been on; I don't care. Once it's done, it's done. But I figured at least once we should film it."

  • Zombie did roll cameras during his 2008 Educated Horses tour, but had very different plans for that still-unseen footage: "I didn't want to really just make a live DVD 'cause I thought, like, who cares. What I really did was I made, like, a tour documentary, where like it starts with the first rehearsal through building the stage through, you know, traveling and flying and playing every show and after show and this and that. And, you know, it's so many hundreds of hours of footage."
  • Zombie did not indicate when the new concert DVD would be released.
  • Zombie's fifth solo album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor, came out last April and entered the Billboard album chart at Number Seven with first-week sales of 34,000 copies.
  • Zombie will kick off a 12-date run of shows on April 26th in Fort Myers, Florida at the Fort Rock festival, mixing other major rock festival stops with headlining shows before calling it quits on May 10th in Camden, New Jersey.
