Marilyn Manson Crushed by Falling ‘Gun’ Stage Prop in NY
Longtime metal singer Marilyn Manson was crushed by a falling stage prop at a concert in New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom, forcing him to cancel the remainder of the show.
“Manson suffered an injury towards the end of his NYC show. He is being treated at a local hospital,” a spokesman for the singer told Rolling Stone.
In a video taken at the concert, Manson can be seen performing his cover of “Sweet Dreams” by Eurythmics, when a prop—that appears to be two big guns—falls on him.
He’s then down on the ground for some time, according to video footage of the incident.

Manson, born Brian Hugh Warner, rose to prominence in the mid-1990s as a shock rocker that combined ghoulish themes with glam rock. He also appeared in David Lynch’s 1997 film “Lost Highway” and also played a small part in “Jawbreaker.” He also appeared in TV shows “Californication” and “Eastbound and Down,” and played a recurring character on “Sons of Anarchy.”
