Marilyn Manson Injured by a Falling Prop During NYC Concert

An official statement has been released concerning the condition of Marilyn Manson after a stage prop fell on him during a show at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom on September 30.

Manson had performed a good portion of his show when during a performance of the song "Sweet Dreams" he attempted to climb the scaffolding on two giant gun stage props.

Manson's 10-date United States and Canadian Heaven Upside Down tour started on September 30 in New York City.

The affected shows include gigs in Boston, Massachusetts; Chicago, Illinois; Toronto, Canada; and Houston, Texas, with Manson expected to resume the trek in Grand Prairie, Texas on October 15.

It was not immediately clear whether any of Manson's concert dates will be postponed due to the injury. The prop toppled over, causing him to fall backwards, landing underneath it. The American leg of the tour started earlier this week in Maryland and is set to run through October and into November in the US and the through December in Europe.

He's then down on the ground for some time, according to video footage of the incident.

On Friday night, in Pittsburgh, Manson suffered another awful incident when he fell off stage - an accident that has said to have fractured his ankle. Eventually the house lights came up and an announcer said that "due to injury", the show was over. After Manson was tended to on stage by local medics, the show was called off and Manson was taken to a nearby hospital.

On Friday, Manson was performing at the Stage AE in Pittsburgh when he fell from the stage during a performance of "The Beautiful People". "Heading home. Manson will be back in action soon". Manson has yet to comment on the incident, or how it will affect his upcoming tour dates.
