Marilyn Manson discusses Hammerstein incident, reschedules tour dates

Marilyn Manson was unfortunately injured on stage at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom, causing him to cut the show short and cancel several tour dates. He has now rescheduled those dates and added others for 2018, and he also discussed the Hammerstein Ballroom incident with Yahoo:

“I only recently watched the video of it,” Manson says 11 days after the accident, lying back on a couch in his living room with his leg in a cast. “I can see how it could look terrifying. It was terrifying for me, because the truss was not secured properly.”

What might have looked on video like Manson shaking or trying to ascend the prop was actually the performer’s desperate effort to prevent it from collapsing. “I wasn’t trying to climb it,” he says. “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.”

…”It definitely could have crushed my skull and my ribs,” Manson says. “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 2018 dates include Long Island’s Paramount Theatre on February 15 and NJ’s Starland Ballroom on February 16. Tickets for the LI and NJ shows will be on sale soon. All dates are listed below.
