Marilyn Manson was forced to cancel nine shows on Sunday after a large, gun-shaped stage prop fell on him during a concert in New York on Saturday night.

Manson, 48, was rushed to a hospital following the incident.

“Marilyn Manson is being forced to cancel several of his October dates on his forthcoming U.S. tour,” the singer’s representative said in a statement, according to Rolling Stone.

“On Saturday night, the legendary performer suffered an injury on stage towards the end of his set at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom causing him to cut the show short. He was treated for the injury at a local hospital and will be recuperating at home in Los Angeles,” the statement added.

The rep declined to say if he had left a New York hospital.

He added that several shows will be canceled.

“The shows from Boston, October 2 through Houston, October 14 will be rescheduled for a later date. Manson hopes to return to the stage soon, more details on upcoming shows to follow,” he said.

He’s scheduled to resume his tour on Oct. 15 with a show at the Freakers’ Ball in Grand Prairie, Texas.

When the prop fell on him, he stayed on the ground for several minutes. Stage crew rushed him and lifted the prop off while EMT workers rushed to the backstage areas and staff shouted for ice. First responders then took him to a hospital on a stretcher.

The severity of his injuries has not been revealed.

A number of fans captured the moment when the gun prop fell on him. He was performing “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These).”
