Marilyn Manson Cancels Nine Shows Due to Injury at NYC Gig
After falling off the stage and announcing he broke his ankle at Friday night’s show in Philadelphia (a claim which appears to have been exaggerated), Marilyn Manson took another spill the very next night in New York City while grabbing onto a stage prop which fell on top of him, resulting in the show being cut short and Manson carted off to the hospital. The exact nature of the injury is still unknown, although there’s been speculation that the damage is to his leg, which may be broken.
Manson’s camp has issued an official statement announcing that the next nine shows of his current tour have been canceled while the singer recovers at home in Los Angeles, and that the shows will be rescheduled. The statement stops short of saying those nine shows will be the only ones canceled, hinting that Manson’s status will be reevaluated soon to determine when exactly he’ll be able to resume touring:
Marilyn Manson is being forced to cancel several of his October dates on his forthcoming U.S. tour. 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 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.
Assuming Manson is indeed able to get back on his feet after nine shows off, the rest of the tour will look like this, pending any of the canceled dates being rescheduled:
10/15 Grand Prairie, TX — KEGL Freaker’s Ball @ Verizon Theater
