In a video taken at the concert, Manson can be seen performing his cover of "Sweet Dreams" by Eurythmics, when a prop-that appears to be two big guns-falls on him.

Marilyn Manson has cancelled a string of tour dates after he was crushed by an on-stage prop mid-concert.

A representative for the shock rocker has confirmed that his scheduled concerts between October 2 in Boston and October 14 in Houston are now canceled, and that the tour should resume the next day in Grand Prairie, Texas.

A rep for the entertainer told Fox, "that the severity of Marilyn Manson's injuries was not known". The video above shows him kneeling down in front of two giant pistols attached to a frame, which topples forward over him while he's singing "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)".

"Well, the Marilyn Manson Heaven Upside Down tour is on pause for a minute", he captioned a photo of an airplane.

Following the incident, the venue lights went off, and attendees were asked to leave the premises, with some fans unclear about what had just occurred. He reportedly broke his ankle recently during a show in Pittsburgh, but kept performing despite the injury.

Manson is now promoting his new album, Heaven Upside Down.

After the prop was lifted from Manson, the singer remained lying on the ground for several minutes, reports Rolling Stone.

A representative for Manson confirmed that he was being treated in hospital but gave no further details of how seriously he had been injured or his condition. Manson will be back in action soon. Manson has yet to comment on the incident, or how it will affect his upcoming tour dates.

"Heaven Upside Down" is Manson's tenth studio album.

The internet is abuzz with fans wishing Manson a speedy recovery.
