Marilyn Manson Collapses Onstage in Canada
Marilyn Manson has been known to heighten the shock value at shows, but what happens when the “shock” is unintentional? During a show in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, on Wednesday night (Feb. 6), Manson collapsed and vomited onstage in the midst of the fan-favorite track ‘The Beautiful People.’
According to the Ottawa Citizen, the vocalist was rocking just like normal during the performance, then went down to one knee, which seemed like a traditional rock star move to get closer to the audience, but as seen in the video below, he falls to the stage and begins to vomit.
The band kept rocking along as if everything was okay, but after a brief period members of Manson’s road crew made their way to the stage and carried the singer off. ‘The Beautiful People’ is Manson’s usual set-closer, so it is assumed that it would have been the last song of the night. During the show, Manson performed a mixture of new songs (‘Hey Cruel World,’ ‘No Reflection’) and classics (‘mOBSCENE,’ ‘Personal Jesus,’ ‘Sweet Dreams’ and ‘The Dope Show’).
At press time, an update on Manson’s condition has not been released and it is not known how this will affect his current itinerary.
Update: TMZ reports that Manson was suffering from the flu. Read more here.
