After sustaining an injury during a concert in New York, Marilyn Manson is cancelling nine tour dates over the next two weeks, according to his reps.
The cancelled shows include performances in Boston, Toronto, Chicago, Milwaukee, Kansas City and Houston. Manson’s tour in support of his new album, “Heaven Upside Down,” will resume in Grand Prairie, Texas on Oct. 15.
Manson was midway through a performance of his band’s well-known cover of the Eurythmics song “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These)” at the Hammerstein Ballroom when he approached a stage backdrop that was framed by two giant fake pistols. Manson began to climb the prop, until it collapsed. The band continued to play for several seconds until it became clear Manson wasn’t able to get up. A video of the accident can be seen here.
According to a statement given to TheWrap by Manson’s reps, the metal singer was treated at a local hospital for the undisclosed injury and is recuperating at his home in Los Angeles. Details on possible rescheduling of the cancelled dates are still to come.
