Marilyn Manson had a meltdown on stage during his concert in New York on Friday, Feb. 16. His show was cut short immediately after his fans cried foul.
One concertgoer recounted what happened on Friday night and said that Manson's show deteriorated very quickly. For 10 minutes, the 49-year-old singer urged fans to clap for him, but no music was played.
"I think we all started to realize something was wrong. Once he was temporarily satisfied, it didn't improve. They would start songs only to screech them to a halt a minute in. There were very drawn out versions of songs where Manson mostly rambled on about our lack of love and other bizarre things. After an hour and fifteen minutes of this, he threw his microphone and left the stage," wrote the fan.
Other concertgoers also wrote negative comments about Manson on Paramount's official Instagram account. Some fans accused the singer of performing on stage while intoxicated. Others claimed that they deserve to get a refund.
Marilyn Manson's Struggles
Manson was also involved in another controversy last year after he launched his tour to promote Heaven Upside Down. The singer's October show was canceled after he suffered an injury involving a gun-shaped prop. Manson broke his leg at the time. A month later, he continued his tour, ut was slammed for allegedly aiming a fake rifle at one of his audience.
Last year, "The Beautiful People" singer talked about his struggles with drug use and said that bath salts are the only type of drugs he refuses to try.
"I don't want my flesh to fall off. I've smoked human bones and taken acid. I don't want to do either again, because all your demons appear when you smoke bones or take acid. The older you get, the more demons chase you around and you have nightmares," said Manson.
As of late, the singer has not yet apologized to his fans for his actions during Friday night's performance. He has not always had a good experience with those who support him. In the past, Manson revealed that a fan tried to bite his p****.
"I jumped into the barricade and I was singing to the crowd. I can't remember what city it was. It might have been somewhere in upper Eastern Europe. Someone bit hard onto where my [expletive] is. They didn't get the [expletive], but they got the part of the pant where the [expletive] belongs..." said Manson.
