Marilyn Manson cancels tour dates after being injured at New York City show

Francesco Prandoni/RedfernsMarilyn Manson has scrapped nine of his Heaven Upside Down tour dates after a New York City show on Saturday night, during which he was crushed by a falling piece of the stage set.

In a statement to Rolling Stone, Mason’s rep said, “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.”

According to the rep, Manson’s shows from October 2 through October 14 will be rescheduled.  He’s scheduled to resume his tour October 15 at the Freaker’s Ball at Grand Prairie, TX.

“Manson hopes to return to the stage soon, more details on upcoming shows to follow,” concluded the statement.

According to Manson’s itinerary, the rocker is currently scheduled to resume his tour October 15th with a gig at Grand Prairie, Texas’ Freaker’s Ball.

Video shot by concertgoers showed Manson climbing onto the prop of two giant handguns, which tipped backwards and fell on top of him.

Manson was performing a cover of the Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” at the time of the accident.

Friday’s show was on just the third night of Mason’s 41-show Heaven Upside Down world tour. He’s currently promoting his new album of the same name, which is due out October 6.
