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 Wednesday night (Feb. 6), Manson collapsed 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 fan-shot video of the show below, he eventually falls backward out of view (seen at approximately 1:13 into the video below).
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 anyway. 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').
According to TMZ, there were unconfirmed reports that the singer also vomited onstage before being pulled off by his roadies, but the video footage from the event does not show what happened to Manson on the stage after he collapsed.
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. The Buzz sends our best wishes to the rocker.
