UPDATE: Due to his injuries, Manson has postponed nine tour dates between October 2nd in Boston and October 14th in Houston. He plans to make those shows up at a later date.
Marilyn Manson was hospitalized Saturday after a stage prop featuring a pair of huge handguns fell on him during his New York show.
Manson was performing his cover of Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams Are Made of This" toward the end of his Hammerstein Ballroom concert when he turned and walked over to the two enormous revolvers held up by metal scaffolding. From video taken at the concert, he appeared to be climbing the structure when it tumbled onto him, knocking him over.
Stage hands quickly rushed over and pulled it off him, as he lay motionless on the stage. After about 15 minutes, he was carried off on a stretcher. During that time, an announcement was made that the show was cancelled. You can find fan-shot video of the accident on YouTube and social media.
Variety printed this brief statement from his rep: "Manson suffered an injury towards the end of an incredible NYC show. He is being treated at a local hospital." They quote an unnamed source "close to the situation" telling them unofficially that Manson “should be fine.” Sunday morning, Manson band member Tyler Bates posted on Instagram, "Well, the Marilyn Manson Heaven Upside Down Tour is on pause for a minute. Heading home. Manson will be back in action soon." The Heaven Upside Down album comes out Friday.
