Rock icon Marilyn Manson was injured during a performance in New York City when part of the stage decor fell on him.
The extent of his injuries is unclear but a spokesman said he plans to return to his home in Los Angeles to recuperate. He has postponed the next two weeks of his tour.
The accident happened 45 minutes after the concert had started on Saturday evening while Manson sang a cover version of Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).”
Videos shared by fans show two giant guns, held together by a metal structure, toppling onto the 48-year-old singer as he backed towards it.
A piece of the set fell right on him :( :(

The crowd reacted in shock while crew members lifted the structure off Manson and carried him away.
An eyewitness’ photo shows Manson being carried on a stretcher into an ambulance.

Hope Marilyn Manson is ok.
