Rumours abound that their Australian jaunt will be the band's last shows. Many believe Garbage have held Manson back and that 10 years into her career she should be a star of Gwen Stefani's status.
Manson, though, is evasive.
"I'm sure I will make a solo record at some point. I don't want to spend my whole life in Garbage; I will want to move on and try different things in my life.
"Being in a band for a long time is really strange. You can't move without the other three feeling it, and the responsibility of that can really weigh heavily after a while."
