Marilyn Manson Reveals He Broke His Leg In Two Places During Onstage Incident, Reschedules U.S. Tour

Marilyn Manson was recently interviewed by Yahoo Music, and revealed the injuries he sustained when a stage prop fell on him during his September 30 show at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, NY. The singer broke his fibula in two places, and had to undergo surgery, which included putting in a plate and 10 screws, plus an additional screw in his ankle.

Manson said the following:

“I only recently watched the video of it. I can see how it could look terrifying. It was terrifying for me, because the truss was not secured properly. I wasn’t trying to climb it. It started to fall and I tried to push back and I didn’t get out the way in time. I’m not sure what I hit my head on, but it did fall onto my leg and break the fibula in two places. The pain was excruciating.”

He also added:

“It definitely could have crushed my skull and my ribs. I have some minor bruising in that area, but it took six guys to pull it off of me. It was like wrestling a giant iron monster.”

“The thing that pisses me off most is that I’m not onstage, because that’s where I should be. And with a cast on my leg, it’s hard to talk about the excitement of the tour. It got cut off right as I was about to put it into second gear. But I’ll be back there really shortly and it’s going to be as exciting as it was starting out.”

He later said:

“I think it was possibly the whole nature, God, whatever it might be — someone was trying to put a stop to things. If you believe in one thing, you gotta believe in the other power. I don’t know if it was my excitement and disregard for being safe in the conventional sense — like I ever have been. You get me onstage and I just get so excited.”

Due to injuries, Manson’s October dates have been rescheduled. His November European/UK dates and Ozzfest Meets Knotfest appearance are expected to go on as planned.

Marilyn Manson has premiered a new video for his song “SAY10.” Johnny Depp stars in the clip and the track appears on Manson’s new album, “Heaven Upside Down“, which is available now.

Manson commented:

“After the the balloons have all shriveled up and are swallowed in the puddles of puke and idealism, don’t look to Me for sympathy. I am here to be all that I am accused of not being. And to be blamed for what you made Me.

The shots you will hear are from a mouth disguised as a gun. Don’t call this art. This is a hard cock in a room full of vampires and the music, man. The music is My foul blood on your faces.”
