Marilyn Manson was injured in New York City Saturday night when a stage prop fell on him during a live performance.
The incident happened during Manson’s set at the Hammerstein Ballroom as he was performing a the song “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” .
Fan-filmed video from the concert shows Manson climbing a massive prop before it gave way and fell on him. The stage crew and his band members immediately rushed to lift the prop off of him. After a brief delay, the house lights came up and an announcer said that the show was being canceled “due to injury.”
His publicist, Carrie Tolles, said that “Manson suffered an injury” towards the end of the concert and “is being treated at a local hospital.” Another source told Variety that the singer was “fine” despite being hospitalized.
A fan who watched the concert from the second row told the New York Daily News: “It was so fast, at first I thought it was part of the show. But then I saw the guitarist’s face, and the faces of some of the others who rushed over and they looked scared — really scared. I was like, ‘Oh, this is not a joke.'”
“He moved for a minute at first, but then he was still,” the fan said. “They turned off the lights but we could see they were trying to cover him with a blanket.”
One day earlier, Manson hopped off stage during his concert in Pittsburgh. After making his way back to the stage, Manson told the crowd, “I just broke my ankle, but it’s okay.”
Marilyn’s North American tour kicked off on September 27 in Silver Spring, Maryland.
He is on the road supporting his upcoming album, “Heaven Upside Down”, which will be released on October 6.
