Marilyn Manson collapsed on stage and cut short his set in Houston, Texas last night, the Houston Press reports. Before taking the stage, he had banned photographers, citing illness, and later told the crowd he was suffering “heat poisoning.” During his cover of Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This),” Manson stumbled backwards and collapsed, footage shows.
Manson returned to the stage for “Antichrist Superstar” before ending his set. He ended up in doctor’s care, according to a tweet this morning. Pitchfork has emailed his representatives for comment.
Co-headliner Rob Zombie acknowledged Manson’s illness when he began his set, as the Guardian points out. “My dear friend Mr Manson is feeling under the weather,” he said. “He’s probably on the bus feeling like crap.” Earlier this year, Manson ended a Long Island show after an apparent breakdown on stage. Back in October 2017, cancelled tour dates after he was hit mid-show by a falling prop.
