Marilyn Manson was rushed to the hospital Friday night after a large stage prop fell on top of him during his show at the Manhattan Center Hammerstein Ballroom.

Marilyn Manson is "recovering well" in a NY hospital after a huge pistol-shaped stage prop fell onto him while performing at a concert Saturday night. At this point it appears that Manson is not drastically injured but needs some time to recuperate at his home in Los Angeles.

"Marilyn Manson is being forced to cancel several of his October dates on his forthcoming U.S. tour", states the singer's rep.

According to an official statement from his rep, Manson has been forced to cancel the next nine shows of his United States tour. At the moment, nobody knows how severe Manson's injuries really were and how is he feeling.

Manson fell backward and the prop fell on him.

Manson kicked off his "Heaven Upside Down Tour" two days prior in Maryland. The venue then went completely dark as Manson was taken away.

A fourth supporter, who was anxious, shared: "Stage props trying to kill Manson wtf?" Concert goers were told the rest of the concert was cancelled "due to injury". In one video, a few fans could be heard shouting encouragement at Manson to get back up.

"It happened in the middle of his song 'Sweet Dreams, '" a fan present at the show, Yousif Al Zaid, told The Guardian. Manson had just last week launched his "Heaven Upside Down" tour to promote his tenth studio album, to be officially released on October 6.

Eight other tour dates will also be postponed, including planned concerts in Boston, Chicago, Toronto, and Houston. While no details were revealed, another spokesperson said the singer would be "okay".

"Heaven Upside Down" is Manson's tenth studio album.
