As you may recall, Marilyn Manson previously admitted that he used to piss on Korn‘s catering during an early tour with Danzig. Fast forward to the present, Manson attended the Hollywood, CA date of Korn‘s “Follow The Leader” 20th anniversary run and James “Munky” Shaffer took to Instagram to show Manson some gratitude for showing up and not urinating on the band’s food.

Last night (August 18), Marilyn Manson cut his The Woodlands, TX performance short after four songs. The singer was struggling throughout the set and even collapsed during his cover of Eurythmics‘ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This).“ Manson was rumored to have “food poisoning,” but in one clip he can be heard saying he had “heat poisoning.”
HoustonPress shared the following account of the set:
“The anti-Christ was in Texas and The Woodland’s crowd clamored for Satan’s little helper as time drew well past the announced set time. Just as the show was about to start the band’s tour manager escorted photographers from the pit and explained that Manson was feeling very ill and did not want his picture taken.
When Manson finally came out to “Cruci-Fiction In Space” he absolutely gave it his all. He held on to the brass knuckled microphone attached to the stand, shouting his lungs out. There were very long breaks between songs with the stage blacked out. To borrow a line from his co-headliner, Manson proved he was more human than human by coming out and giving it literally everything his body could muster. He was mostly stationary and visibly shaking at times while he braced himself with the microphone stand. Upon finishing “Sweet Dreams” he collapsed on top of one of the monitors. Roadies could be seen on the side of the stage worriedly contemplating on whether or not to assist him.
Rumor has it that the sickness was caused when Manson took holy communion earlier in the day for the first time in 30 years. That’s not true; talk backstage speculated that it was a horrible case of food poisoning.”
The site goes on to say Manson’s tourmate Rob Zombie also addressed his illness before playing their collaborative cover of “Helter Skelter”:
“My dear friend Mr. Manson is feeling under the weather. He’s probably on the bus feeling like crap. I need a partner for the next song so let’s sing it really loud and make him feel better.”
According to TMZ, Marilyn Manson was recently accused of raping a woman and holding her captive for 48 hours back in October 2011, but the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office has since decided not to proceed with charges due to an “absence of corroboration.” There were also some battery and assault with a deadly weapon charges related to cutting that occurred during sex, but those have already exceeded the statute of limitations.
Manson‘s attorney Howard E. King commented:
“It is not surprising that the District Attorney, after investigation, summarily rejected the claims made in a police report filed by a former acquaintance against Brian Warner p/k/a Marilyn Manson.”
The allegations made to the police were and are categorically denied by Mr. Warner and are either completely delusional or part of a calculated attempt to generate publicity for the claimant’s business of selling Manson memorabilia.”
The police report that spurred the investigation was accompanied by the woman’s press release and other attempts to generate publicity that fraudulently claimed she was held captive by Mr. Warner for 48 hours in 2011. Any claim of sexual impropriety or imprisonment at that, or any other, time is false.”
A video of Marilyn Manson being handcuffed by police at the Impact Music Festival has been circulating online after the singer posted it on Instagram. Now, it appears the whole thing was just a joke, with The Bangor Maine Police Department having shared an amusing apology.
The Bangor Maine Police Department said the following:
“In the interest of saving us a whole lot of call-backs, Marilyn Manson was merely handcuffed and released immediately thereafter.
Officer Curtis Grenier, typically listening to only Enya, and a little bit of Oasis, was posted backstage during the Impact Music Festival. He did not recognize Mr. Manson without his stage makeup- our apologies.
Later, when approaching Rob Zombie, Officer Grenier was overheard saying, “I have never seen him in the Walking Dead, so I don’t know what the big deal is.”
Grenier has been spoken to and relieved of back-stage concert related duties for the foreseeable future. The Chief has determined that Grenier can work backstage during Lord of the Dance or anything related to Disney.
Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people’s things alone, and be kind to one another.
We will be here.
With the Beautiful People.
