Marilyn Manson Rushed To Hospital After Stage Mishap

A giant stage prop fell on Marilyn Manson during his concert Saturday night in New York City, forcing the rock star to cancel the performance halfway through the show.

While performing "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of These)," Manson began to climb a massive stage prop of two pistols which then toppled over on him. TMZ reported that he was taken to the hospital. 

The stage lights were cut at the Hammerstein Ballroom and an emergency crew surrounded the 48-year-old shock-rocker. After the confused crowd looked on in darkness for around 10 minutes, Manson was carried offstage on a stretcher.

Manson had reportedly broken his ankle the night before performing in Pittsburgh but seemed to be active and mobile, performing for around an hour and a half before the stage prop accident. He even walked around on stilts during the performance. 

This is also not the first time Manson has cancelled a show due to an onstage emergency. He collapsed due to the flu in 2013 while performing in Saskatoon.
