ROB ZOMBIE Doesn't Like Playing Lots Of New Songs Live

The Pulse of Radio reports: Don't ever expect Rob Zombie to jump on the current trend of playing an entire album from start to finish in concert. According to Noisecreep, the singer and filmmaker doesn't even like to play more than a handful of new songs live, saying, "You can only play so many — three, four songs tops off a new record because the more time that goes by, the more songs you have that people expect to hear. Nothing's worse than when I've gone to see bands and they're like, 'We're going to play our entire new album from start to finish!' (You're like) 'Terrific. Thanks, douchebags.'"

In fact, Zombie says there's songs on his new "Hellbilly Deluxe 2" album that fans will probably never hear live: "We'll never play 'The Man Who Laughs' live, ever. We'll never play 'Burn', ever . . . I don't like that song that much."

Zombie played two cuts from the new album, "What?" and "Sick Bubblegum" on his fall 2009 tour, and says his band is also rehearsing "Werewolf, Baby!" and "Mars Needs Women" for his next round of live dates.

Zombie will next hit the road with ALICE COOPER for a short run of seven North American shows, beginning on April 26 in Winnipeg, Canada.

Following the dates with COOPER, Zombie will co-headline the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Tour with KORN, beginning on July 10 in Devore, California.

A Zombie-directed episode of "CSI: Miami" airs on CBS-TV Monday night (March 1) at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
