Marilyn Manson has canceled the next nine shows of his North American tour after being injured by a falling stage prop on Saturday night (September 30) during a concert in New York.
Manson was taken from the stage on a stretcher after appearing to slip while climbing some scaffolding, and a Manson representative issued a statement saying that he "was treated for the injury at a local hospital and will be recuperating at home in Los Angeles."
The injury scotches shows from Monday (October 2) in Boston to an October 14 date in Houston, with concerts in Huntington, N.Y., Toronto, Camden, J.J., Columbus, Ohio, Chicago, Milwaukee and Kansas City also affected. Manson is slated to resume the tour on October 15 at the Freakers Ball in Grand Prairie, Texas.
Manson releases a new album, Heaven Upside Down, on Friday (October 6).
