Marilyn Manson hospitalised after huge stage prop crushes him
Marilyn Manson’s new tour has taken another drastic turn after being hospitalised by a large stage prope that collapsed and landed on him during his show in New York City.
The 48-year-old artist is three shows into his The Heaven Upside Down Tour when fan footage captured him attempting to climb a steel structure made in the shape of two pistol guns. However, moments later the huge frame came tumbling down on top of Manson, pinning and crushing him to the stage.
“He was performing the [Eurythmics] song Sweet Dreams. Towards the middle of the song it seemed as though he tried climbing onto a prop,” and eye witness told the BBC.
“The first touch of weight on those poles and it came crashing down onto him.He was pretty limp, almost as though he was unconscious.”
Fan footage captured crew members trying to pull Manson from underneath the structure before he was eventually carried from stage via a stretcher.
“Manson suffered an injury towards the end of his incredible NYC show. He is being treated at a local hospital,” a representative has revealed.
