Marilyn Manson canceled his performance on Thursday night due to an illness. The singer was supposed to perform with Rob Zombie in Toronto, Ontario.
On his Twitter account, Manson released a statement to explain his absence. He also said that if his fans had bought tickets solely to watch him perform, they will get a refund. Zombie performed as scheduled on Thursday night.
Manson and his rep did not elaborate on the singer's illness. However, his fans reacted negatively to the announcement. After all, posters of the singer had already been put up, and some fans thought that the singer will be there to sing for them.
Fans React To Cancelation
One fan said this is what happens when someone leaves God's path. Another fan accused Manson of being too drunk to play.
"Don't know what to say, Manson surely could have given more notice then just b4 u are to come out on stage. Me & wife came from Australia, for her bday, she's totally devo dude, as I am. Walked out, was only there for u man... Long time fans waited so long for this opportunity," commented one fan.
"You never cancel your concerts... ever. I lost my role model, Chester Bennington last year. I hope to God I don't lose you," wrote another fan.
Marilyn Manson Rants Incoherently
Earlier this year, Manson made headlines after he had allegedly ranted incoherently on stage during his show in New York. Several of his fans cried foul, and they also demanded a refund. One concertgoer detailed the event and said that Manson urged them to clap for him for 10 minutes.
"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," shared the fan.
These recent events were not the only controversies involving Manson. Last year, Manson canceled his concert after he had suffered from an injury from a gun-shaped prop.
A month later, he was criticized for pointing a fake rifle at one of his live audiences. At one point, Manson also broke his leg, so he had to cancel his shows.
