A stage prop featuring two giant pistols collapsed atop the shock rocker while he was performing Sweet Dreams. The incident occurred roughly an hour into Manson’s concert which was canceled after a brief delay. Video from the concert shows Manson grappling the prop before it comes crashing down to the stage. After the stage crew lifted the prop back up, Manson lay on the ground for several minutes. The huge prop toppled in an instant. “It was so fast, at first I thought it was part of the show.
The stage before the accident
But then I saw the guitarist’s face, and the faces of some of the others who rushed over and they looked scared – really scared,” a witness said. It took at least 10 minutes for emergency responders to get Manson onto a stretcher. “Manson suffered an injury towards the end of an incredible NYC show. He is being treated at a local hospital,” the statement issued by a spokesman said. It was the second accident in as many days for Manson, who hurt his ankle Friday while performing in Pittsburgh. Manson is best known for his band’s records released in the 1990s, most notably Antichrist Superstar and Mechanical Animals. His stage name was formed by combining and juxtaposing the names of two American pop cultural icons: actress Marilyn Monroe and cult leader Charles Manson.
