Alice Cooper and Marilyn Manson revealed details of their upcoming "Masters of Madness" joint tour, Blabbermouth reports. Watch the interview in the player below.

Tour will hit the road from June 1 through June 28. Following recent pairings of Alice with Rob Zombie and then Rob Zombie with Manson, this combination of Alice Cooper and Marilyn Manson has been long-awaited by fans of both artists.

Alice Cooper is a true rock icon, having pioneered the use of theatrics and shocking images onstage in concerts from the earliest days of the original band of the same name. Since going solo, he has continued to produce elaborate stage shows providing fans with both shock and rock of the highest caliber.

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011, Alice has toured and recorded continuously, with his most recent album being "Welcome 2 My Nightmare" through UMe. Recorded with longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, who produced the original ground breaking, multi-platinum "Welcome To My Nightmare" album in 1975, the album picks up right where they left off, with Alice trapped in his own warped mind.

Marilyn Manson's most recent full-length album, "Born Villain, his eighth overall, debuted in the Top 10 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD earned Manson his fourth Grammy nomination at the 2013 Grammys in the "Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance" category for the album's lead single, "No Reflection.

Manson's last US tour was the "Twins of Evil" run with Rob Zombie, a bill that looked good on paper but which did not go smoothly, leading to some verbal exchanges between the two shock rockers onstage.

    Alice Cooper good, Marylin Manson bad, hurr hurrr I just saved everyone reading all of the other comments on this article.
    Alice cooper is still really fun live but Manson is a fat drug addled alcoholic live that can barely get through one song...
    I'm not a huge fan of either of those artists, but it'd be cool if Rob Zombie joined them too (of which I'm not a huge fan of either).
    Not sure whether Rob would tour with MM after their previous tour =p Bit of controversy about concert timings. But yeah, would be cool if he joined...
    Saw the Manson / Rob Zombie tour last year, Rob Zombie made Manson look like an amateur.
    This is gonna be fun with the Coop being a christian, sober & rational person and Manson being... well Manson.
    I was at the Twins of Evil show. And, it was great except for Zombie making some anti MM comments. Whats up with that? The fans are not there to hear one hero put down another! At one point they had to stop the show during Manson to setup a crowd gate that had fallen over. They had to get the whole crowd to move back about five feet. ...tough thing to do at a show filled with anti-establishment types. Then later Zombie is dissing on Manson because of it? Seriously? Is he jealous because of crowd enthusiasm? So I was not surprised to hear the problems got worse later in the tour. Too bad. The audience looses, and ultimately, the performers loose as well. Zombie put on an amazing show and then came off looking like kind of a dick.
