This is a developing story.
A giant stage prop fell on Marilyn Manson during his concert Saturday night (September 30th) in New York City, forcing the rockstar to cancel the performance halfway through the show. While performing "Sweet Dreams," Manson began to climb a massive stage prop of two pistols which then toppled over on him. TMZ reports that he has been taken to the hospital.
The stage lights were cut at the Hammerstein Ballroom and an emergency crew surrounded the 48-year-old shock rocker after the stage prop toppled on him. After the confused crowd looked on in darkness for around 10 minutes, Manson was carried offstage on a stretcher and taken to the hospital. The show was cancelled immediately after.
Manson had reportedly broken his ankle the night before performing in Pittsburgh but seemed to be active and mobile, performing for around an hour and a half before the stage prop accident. He even walked around on stilts during the performance.
This is also not the first time Manson has cancelled a show due to an onstage emergency. He collapsed due to the flu in 2013 while performing in Canada.
