Oh no. A large stage prop reportedly fell on Marilyn Manson during his New York show at the Manhattan Center Hammerstein Ballroom. Here’s what we know.
Marilyn Manson, 48, has been injured after a prop landed on him during his set at New York City on Sept. 30. The prop, designed to look like a pair of hand guns, crashed down on him during his performance of “Sweet Dreams (Are Made 0f This)”, immediately ending the show. It took several minutes for the emergency workers on hand to free Manson and get him on a stretcher, according to TMZ. He was since been taken to the hospital.

Because Marilyn was in midst of one of his best-known songs, countless fans were documenting the concert and captured the horrific moment when the prop gave way. Witnesses said that he was attempting to climb the enormous twin-gun structure when it buckled under his weight, according to the Daily Mail. At this point, there’s no telling just how serious his injures are. However a source said that the musician “should be fine,” according to Variety. Nevertheless, a very scary turn of events.
Update: Marilyn will need two weeks to recuperate from this, it seems. He’s canceled nine tour dates on Oct. 1. The Boston, Huntington, Toronto, Camden, Columbus, Chicago, Milwaukee, Kansas City, and Houston dates have all been axed, with Manson planning to make up the dates at later time, according to Deadline. Marilyn will resume the Heaven Upside Down tour on Oct. 15 in Grand Prairie, Texas.
Marilyn, who is known for his not-so-politically correct antics, took aim at Justin Bieber, 23, recently over using his image on his t-shirts. He broke down an encounter with the pop star to Billboard, saying he approached Justin in “some fancy bar where a lot of celebrities – a word that I despise – go. I saw a little girl in a pink hoodie with blond hair, and it turns out to be Bieber. I sit down, and I say, “Hey, so you wore my shirt and everything onstage. He was one of those touchy people that hit you when they talk, and he comes up to about d*ck height. Then he goes, ‘I made you relevant again.’” Naturally that didn’t go over well.“He was a real piece of sh*t in the way he had the arrogance to say that,” Marilyn added. Yikes.
