Marilyn Manson was hospitalized Saturday night in New York City after a stage prop fell on the 48-year-old singer in the middle of a performance.
“Manson suffered an injury towards the end of an incredible NYC show. He is being treated at a local hospital,” Manson’s representative told Variety in a statement.
Manson was performing a cover of the Eurythmics’ song Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) when he attempted to climb a podium, which tipped and fell on him. The singer’s band continued playing for several minutes before the stage lights came on and the venue announced that the show was over “due to injury.”
While Manson has yet to confirm whether he’s canceling any future dates, bandmate Tyler Bates shared on Instagram that the tour was “on pause for a minute.”
“Well, the Marilyn Manson Heaven Upside Down tour is on pause for a minute,” he captioned a photo of an airplane. “Heading home. Manson will be back in action soon. Heaven Upside Down is released October 6th, with an insane video to stoke the fire. See you soon!”
The singer’s onstage mishap occurred during the third date of his Heaven Upside Down tour, with an album of the same name slated for release next week.
