Marilyn Manson is back on the road after cancelling dates due to his on-stage injury at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom last year. Last night (2/15), he returned to the NYC-area for the first time since that injury for a show at The Paramount in Huntington, and — for different reasons — things didn’t go so well this time either. Attendees are saying that he had a “meltdown” on stage, threw his mic, pushed an amp over, urged the audience to tell him they love him, and walked off stage after an abbreviated set. Here are some tweets from those in attendance:

On the venue’s Instagram of a picture from the show, fans commented demanding refunds. One wrote, “The worst event I ever experienced. He should be held accountable for his actions and not get paid for this.” Another said, “3 songs in and the dude had a mental breakdown or was a drunk dick. Remember @marilynmanson we pay $$$ to see you, I’m getting a fucking refund. Pissed! Waste of time.”

One Reddit user wrote, “There’s no more to it. I had the meet and greet. He was wasted. He was worse on stage. Rambled on and on about us loving him. Here’s the set Reflecting Deep six Rambling on and on for minutes Disposable teens (cut short) He’s off stage for 5-10 Back and rambles for 20 min about who knows what Saturnalia (poorly played riff over and over for 10+min into lunchbox riff with him doing spoken word for 15 min. Stumbled off stage. Band finished lunchbox the right way. Gods gonna cut you down house music.”

Someone else on Reddit wrote, “As someone who is still here, EMTs just walked out too. This man is fucking wasted holy hell.”

You can see a video of part of the “meltdown,” one of fans chanting “fuck you Manson,” and more Instagrams, below.

One fan asked Amanda Palmer for her thoughts on Twitter, and Amanda replied, “it sounds like a sad state of show affairs for marilyn manson too. so also i am sad for him.”

Marilyn is scheduled to play a sold-out show at NJ’s Starland Ballroom tonight (2/16).
