Marilyn Manson Injured Onstage in New York (Watch)

Marilyn Manson was injured onstage at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom Saturday night when a stage prop either fell on him or caused him to fall backward.

A statement from the singer’s rep says, “Manson suffered an injury towards the end of an incredible NYC show. He is being treated at a local hospital.” A source close to the situation told Variety shortly after the incident that Manson “should be fine,” but that was not an official comment.

The band was about 45 minutes into their set and was performing their cover of Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).” At the center of the stage was a podium, framed by two giant fake pistols, which Manson began to climb. The podium wobbled dramatically, Manson fell backward and then the prop fell upon him — the band kept playing for several moments until they noticed the singer was not getting up.

Both the house and stage lights remained down for several minutes; roadies placed a dropcloth over the podium. Eventually the house lights came up and an announcer said that “due to injury,” the show was over.

The band’s “Heaven Upside Down” tour launched just two days ago in Maryland and is scheduled to continue through the end of October; it was unclear at presstime whether any dates will be postponed due to the injury. The album of the same name is slated for release next week.
