According to TMZ.com, Marilyn Manson was suffering from the flu when he collapsed and vomited onstage near the end of his set in concert in Saskatchewan, Canada this past Wednesday night (Feb. 6). The singer was apparently “feeling like crap” all day, but still wanted to go on with the show. After hitting the stage, Manson started feeling worse and vomited several times before collapsing in the middle of the song “Beautiful People”. He fell backward onto the stage, at which point members of his road crew came out to carry him off. The 44-year-old rocker — whose real name is Brian Hugh Warner — decided not to go a hospital, choosing instead to rest up in his hotel room.
Newly released close-up video footage of Manson collapsing onstage can be seen below.
Manson and his band are scheduled to perform tonight (Friday, February 8) in Calgary.
The group’s North American tour with the BUTCHER BABIES will wrap on February 23 in Las Vegas.
