The shock-rocker fell down mid-song and had to be rushed off stage.
When you go to a Marilyn Manson concert, you expect it to be a little scary, but that took on a whole new meaning Feb. 6 when the rocker collapsed on stage in Saskatoon, Canada! Marilyn was mid-way through a performance of “The Beautiful People,” a hit single off his 1996 album Antichrist Superstar, when he suddenly stopped singing and fell down before his legion of adoring fans.
Strangely, it took everyone — including Marilyn’s band — almost an entire minute to react to his fall. Concertgoers continued to rock out as the music blared, seemingly unaware that the main attraction was losing consciousness right in front of their eyes.
Some attendees told TMZ they saw Marilyn, 44, vomit on stage, although that’s not entirely clear from the video below.
Canada’s The Star Phoenix reports that Marilyn told the crowd he wasn’t feeling well. Though the rumor is unsubstantiated, many Twitter users speculated that Marilyn might have the flu.
What Is Marilyn Manson Up To These Days?
When Marilyn’s not collapsing on stage in Saskatoon, Canada, he’s busy honing his acting skills on the small screen. He most recently signed on to appear on the sixth season of Showtime’s Californication, opposite star David Duchovny. David’s character, Hank, is co-writing a musical production based on his book — hence the arrival of Marilyn.
In 2011, he made a special guest appearance on The Soup, The E! clip show hosted by comedian and Community star Joel McHale.
He also appeared on a 2010 episode of Adult Swim’s Tim And Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, in which he played “The Dark Man.”
