UPDATE 2: Marilyn Manson reps have issued an update regarding his Heaven Upside Down tour in light of the shock rocker's onstage injury Saturday night (September 30th) You can read the statement below:

"Marilyn Manson is being forced to cancel several of his October dates on his forthcoming US tour. On Saturday night, the legendary performer suffered an injury on stage towards the end of his set at NYC's Hammerstein Ballroom causing him to cut the show short. He was treated for the injury at a local hospital and will be recuperating at home in Los Angeles. 

"The shows from Boston, Oct 2 through Houston, Oct 14 will be rescheduled for a later date. Manson hopes to return to the stage soon, more details on upcoming shows to follow."

UPDATE 1: Marilyn Manson guitarist and producer Tyler Bates has posted an update on Instagram. In the post, he revealed that he is heading home from the Heaven Upside Down tour, which he said is "on pause for a minute," presumably due to Manson's onstage injury last night. He added, "Manson will be back in action soon." 

A stage prop of two large guns collapsed on top of Marilyn Manson about an hour into Saturday night's performance at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City; the rest of the show was cancelled, as a result. The seriousness of Manson's injuries was unclear at press time.

"Manson suffered an injury towards the end of his NYC show. He is being treated at a local hospital," a Manson rep commented to Rolling Stone.

The shock rockers was singing his hit Eurythmics cover, "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These)," when the prop fell forward on top of him, from the back of the stage. The show was the third date on the North American leg of Manson's Heaven Upside Down tour; it is unclear how future dates will be affected.

After the stage crew lifted the prop back up, Manson lay on the ground for several minutes, and EMTs rushed to the backstage area. TMZ reports that Manson was put on a stretcher before being rushed to the hospital.
