Marilyn Manson postpones shows (including LI)

Marilyn Manson has cancelled nine shows after being injured during a concert in NY.

An eye witness told BBC that "the singer laid on stage for up to 15 minutes covered by a sheet before he was taken to hospital".

The accident occurred about 45 minutes into the band's set at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom, during their cover of Eurythmics' Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This). While performing, a stage prop crashed and crushed him. The American leg of the tour started earlier this week in Maryland and is set to run through October and into November in the USA and the through December in Europe.

A representative for the singer has confirmed that he intends to reschedule the performances, but a specific date for the shows is yet to be announced.

He was rushed to a nearby hospital; the good news is that pictures and videos that surfaced online showed Manson conscious and even sitting up on the stretchers.


Fans said a curtain was placed over the Beautiful People singer while he received medical attention. It is not clear what the extent of the injuries Manson has suffered are. Likewise, it is now unclear whether any upcoming dates on Manson's tour, which began Wednesday, are to postponed or cancelled in light of this incident. After Manson was tended to on stage by local medics, the show was called off and Manson was taken to a nearby hospital. "But then I saw the guitarist's face, and the faces of some of the others, and they looked really scared". It seems like the shows from October 2 through October 14 are going to be rescheduled at a later date.

'Manson hopes to return to the stage soon, more details on upcoming shows to follow'.

He can be seen trying to shield himself with his hands as the prop collapses.

This isn't the only incident on what was only the third concert date into Manson's Heaven Upside Down tour in support of his new album due to be released this coming Friday.
