Billy Corgan, Marilyn Manson host Chicago press conference open to the public

Two REALLY hip musicmakers will be situated on the 25th floor of the Virgin Hotels Chicago tonight to discuss one of the most anticipated tours of the summer.

Billy Corgan and Marilyn Manson are set to host “The End of Times” town hall-style press conference (with questions from media and the general public) at the hotel, 203 N. Wabash.

The Smashing Pumpkins frontman and Manson will be chatting up their “The End of Times” tour, which includes a stop in Chicago on August 7 at First Merit Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and admission is free, first-come, first-served, until capacity is reached. Watch the Marilyn Manson and The Smashing Pumpkins Facebook pages for a chance at guaranteed-entry passes — winners will be chosen randomly from commenters on those pages.

The event is set to start at 7:30 p.m.
