Marilyn Manson made headlines on Saturday, September 30, when his foot was crushed by a stage prop he attempted to climb. After cancelling several of his tour dates between then and now, he will soon be back in action and once again taking the stage.
The injury occurred during the end of his performance, as he tried to climb a giant pair of guns that was on the stage behind him during his famous cover of the Eurythmic’s “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).” This resulted in his cancelling nine tour dates, from October 2 to October 14. He has been recuperating in his Los Angeles home to prepare himself for the rest of the tour. This was only the third stop on his latest tour, in support of the new record Heaven Upside Down.
Shortly before the stage prop fell on him, Manson revealed in an interview that he has also smoked human bones, a revelation that shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to those who know the shock rocker and his antics.
“I’ve smoked human bones and taken acid,” he told Rolling Stone. “I don’t want to do either again, because all your demons appear when you smoke bones or acid.” He also mentioned that although he has a proclivity for drugs and has tried most of them, bath salts are on his list of things never to try.
If you’re lucky enough to live in one of the cities that Manson will still be visiting after the accident, you’ll get to hear some old classics, as well as material off the new record. As long as he can keep off the stage props and stay safe on stage, we can look forward to shows through the beginning of December.
