BREAKING: Marilyn Manson Crushed by Stage Prop at NYC Show, Gig Cancelled Mid-Set
Marilyn Manson's New York City concert tonight (Sept. 30) had to be cut short after a stage prop of two giant guns fell on top of the singer while he was performing "Sweet Dreams."
A rep for Manson told Variety, "Manson suffered an injury towards the end of an incredible NYC show. He is being treated at a local hospital.”
Additional fan-shot footage in the tweet below appears to show Manson attempting to grab hold of the scaffolding on the prop and climb on it before losing his balance and falling backward as the prop came down on top of him. Stagehands immediately rushed the stage to pull the prop off of Manson.
"There was a lot of confusion in the crowd when it happened, people thought it was maybe part of the act," says Loudwire's John Hill, who was at the show. "When the guitarist moved over, the crowd started to freak out. Everyone was really worried and then chants started. They had the crowd move out of the venue real quick."
There's currently no word on if Manson has been seriously injured, though he has reportedly been taken to the hospital.
This is just one day after Manson's gig in Pittsburgh, Pa. where he potentially broke his ankle while performing "The Beautiful People."
This is a developing story. We'll continue to update this post as news breaks.
