Rob Zombie Rocks ‘Thunder Kiss ’65’ With Brother Spider One and Members of Powerman 5000 + Static-X
Things don't always go as planned on the road, but Rob Zombie made the most of a difficult situation during a show this past Thursday (July 21) in Noblesville, Indiana. As a semi tractor-trailer carrying the production for the tour broke down on the way to Indianapolis, Zombie and the fellow acts on the bill were forced to improvise. That led to a memorable moment for fans later in the night when members of Static-X and Powerman 5000 rocked out onstage with Zombie to "Thunder Kiss '65." This proved to be a family affair, providing a chance for Zombie to share the stage with his brother, Spider One of Powerman 5000.
The production issues forced a change in the night's lineup. Static-X and Powerman 5000's sets were scrapped altogether, but the "Thunder Kiss '65" performance still allowed members of those bands, including the masked Xero from Static-X, to rock alongside Zombie for those in the audience. Both Mudvayne and Zombie played shortened sets during the night as well as a result of the production woes.
"Thunder Kiss '65" was Zombie's breakout hit as a member of White Zombie back in 1992. He's currently touring in support of his solo set, 2021's The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy.
Fan-shot video of the special moment can be seen below.
The four acts are together on one of the summer's most buzzed about tours. You can find tickets for the run here.
