Reports have emerged that infamous shock-rocker Marilyn Manson has been hospitalised following an onstage incident in New York that saw the musician crushed by a stage prop.

As Rolling Stone reports, Marilyn Manson has recently kicked off a US tour in support of his upcoming tenth record, Heaven Upside Down, but the rocker has been hospitalised following an onstage incident during his New York City performance.

“Manson suffered an injury towards the end of his incredible NYC show. He is being treated at a local hospital,” a spokesperson for Marilyn Manson told Rolling Stone.

Manson was about ten songs into his set at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom, performing his famous cover of Eurythmics’ ‘Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)’, when the incident occurred.

Footage of the incident shows Manson making his way towards the back of the stage when a stage prop of two large pistols fell onto him as he attempted to climb them, leaving Manson motionless on stage while paramedics rushed to his aid.

Following the incident, the venue lights went off, and attendees were asked to leave the premises, with some fans unclear about what had just occurred.

According to Variety, a source close to the singer states that he is expected to be “fine”, but no official statement has been released yet. Likewise, it is currently unclear whether any upcoming dates on Manson’s tour, which began Wednesday, are to postponed or cancelled in light of this incident.

Marilyn Manson has also been in the news quite a bit lately, thanks to the announcement of his new record, his strange feud with Justin Bieber, and the news that he has now ended his long-running feud with Trent Reznor.

While we await further news as to Marilyn Manson’s current condition, we wish him all the best, and hope that he makes a full recovery rather soon.
