Marilyn Manson Cancels 9 Shows After Onstage Injury

Marilyn Manson has cancelled nine of his upcoming concerts – including an Oct. 5 show at Rebel in Toronto – after being crushed by a large onstage prop at a weekend show in New York City.

On Saturday night, the 48-year-old shock rocker was taken offstage on a stretcher and rushed to the hospital.  

A representative for the singer said in a statement: "Marilyn Manson is being forced to cancel several of his October dates on his forthcoming U.S. tour.

"On Saturday night, the legendary performer suffered an injury on stage towards the end of his set at NYC's Hammerstein Ballroom causing him to cut the show short. He was treated for the injury at a local hospital and will be recuperating at home in Los Angeles.

"The shows from Boston on Oct. 2 through to Houston on Oct. 14 will be rescheduled for a later date. Manson hopes to return to the stage soon, more details on upcoming shows to follow."

The extent and specifics of Manson's injuries have not been revealed yet, but it does not appear that the singer suffered any catastrophic injuries.

Manson had been performing for over an hour before he tried to climb the massive prop of two guns while singing "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of These)," which then toppled over onto the singer.

Manson is releasing his new album Heaven Upside Down on Oct. 6.
