It’s not every day you get the chance to play a massive festival like Coachella—words that ring especially true if you’re Marilyn Manson.

(If hearing "Coachella" and "Marilyn Manson" together in the same sentence sounds strange to you, let us clarify.)

Recently on social media, as Pitchfork points out, the shock-rocker revealed two things:

1. He was apparently banned from Coachella, and

2. He’ll now be playing Coachella.

We didn’t know there was a Manson-Coachella ban, but if there was, it looks like the ban has been lifted?

I am happy to join my great friend @yoshikiofficial and XJapan at Coachella on Saturday the 21st for a special performance.

So it looks like Manson will take the stage with Japanese band XJapan this Saturday, April 21.
