Marilyn Manson tourdates postponed after on-stage injury from falling prop

The singer is now being treated at a local hospital.

Marilyn Manson has postponed almost two weeks' worth of shows on his current tour as he recovers following an on-stage accident on Saturday (September 30).

 

A rep for the rock star confirmed that Manson's planned shows between October 2 in Boston and October 14 in Houston have been cancelled for now. It's hoped that they can be rescheduled at a later date, although nothing specific has been decided just yet.

 

Manson is reported to be resting at home in Los Angeles.

 

Original story: Marilyn Manson has been injured while performing during a concert in New York.

 

The singer was on stage at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom on Saturday evening (September 30) when he suffered the injury, which appears to have been caused by a faulty stage prop.

 

A video filmed during the incident appears to show Manson attempting to climb the props during a performance of Eurythmics' 'Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)' before showing the structure crash down on top of him.

Reports from concert goers have said the singer laid on stage for up to 15 minutes before he was taken to hospital in a stretcher, according to the BBC.

 

The stage reportedly went dark for several minutes afterwards, but the show was later cancelled after an announcer confirmed that the show was over "due to injury".

 

The incident was confirmed by Manson's reps in a statement given to Variety, when it was also confirmed the singer was being treated in hospital.

"Manson suffered an injury towards the end of an incredible NYC show," the statement read. "He is being treated at a local hospital."

 

The gig marked the third date of Manson's Heaven Upside Down tour, which had kicked off in Maryland, USA on September 27.

 

He was next due to perform on Monday (October 2) in Boston, Massachusetts.

Manson made headlines last month when he reportedly pulled a fake gun out on a journalist during an interview.

 

His next album, Heaven Upside Down, is due for release on Friday, October 6.
