Marilyn Manson Struck By Falling Object At Concert

Singer Marilyn Manson has been injured by a falling stage prop during a concert in New York.

The 48-year-old's show was brought to a halt when two large gun-shaped props came crashing down on him at the Manhattan Center Hammerstein Ballroom

According to TMZ, Manson was performing 'Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)' around an hour into his show when the stage prop fell on top of him.


Emergency services had to be called to the scene and it took several minutes to retrieve him from under the objects.

Eyewitness Anthony Biscardi told the BBC fans at the concert 'instantly freaked out'.


He added: "He was performing the song Sweet Dreams. Towards the middle of the song it seemed as though he tried climbing onto a prop.

"The first touch of weight on those poles and it came crashing down onto him."

An eyewitness told the BBC that the singer laid on stage for up to 15 minutes covered by a sheet.

He was stretchered away from the scene of the incident and taken to a local hospital. The rest of the show was cancelled.


His condition is not currently known, however a representative told Rolling Stone magazine that: "Manson suffered an injury towards the end of his incredible NYC show. He is being treated at a local hospital."

His fans were quick to wish him well on social media:


Manson is scheduled to perform in Boston on Monday night.
