Marilyn Manson Hospitalized After Prop Falls On Him; Injured For Second Night in a Row

by VVN Music

Marilyn Manson is only three shows into the second leg of his Heaven Upside Down Tour but he has been injured twice.

On Friday, Manson was performing at the Stage AE in Pittsburgh when he fell from the stage during a performance of "The Beautiful People". He managed to get himself back on stage before calling out Alice Glass to help him finish the song, the last of the set.  Marilyn told the crowd "I told you I'd break my ankle because the tour manager is a fascist."

Saturday night's show at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York included a much more serious incident.  About two-thirds of the way into the show while performing "Sweet Dreams", a large stage set of two guns fell forward and pinned the singer, requiring a couple of crew members to lift it off.

Reports say that Manson remained on the stage for a couple of minutes while people tried to help him. The show was eventually canceled while Marilyn was carried off on a stretcher and transported to a hospital.

Here are fan shot video of the incident.  In the first, the accident occurs around two minutes into the video.

Manson's next show is scheduled for Monday at the House of Blues in Boston.
