Marilyn Manson has confirmed that he received medical treatment, after the shock-rock pioneer collapsed during a show in Houston on Saturday night.
As he performed a cover of The Eurythmics’ ‘Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This’, Manson was seen falling down before eventually coming to rest on one of the stage monitors.
Moments before the incident, he reportedly told the crowd that he was suffering from “heat poisoning” shortly beforehand.
Now, he’s confirmed that he sought medical attention immediately afterwards.
“Thanks Houston for being understanding. I ended up in doctor’s care, but I gave it my best and you guys were amazing”, he confirmed on Twitter.
He was joined on the tour by co-headliner Rob Zombie, who also referenced Manson’s illness after confirming that the pair would not be joining forces with a nightly cover of ‘Helter Skelter’ by The Beatles.
Thanks Houston for being understanding. I ended up in doctor’s care, but I gave it my best and you guys were amazing.

“My dear friend Mr. Manson is feeling under the weather. He’s probably on the bus feeling like crap. I need a partner for the next song so let’s sing it really loud and make him feel better”, Zombie told the crowd.
Photographers at the gig were also reportedly told to leave the photo pit before Manson’s entry, as he didn’t want his photo taken while feeling ill.
The ‘Twins of Evil: The Second Coming’ tour resumed last night with a stop-off in Denver.
Manson’s latest on-stage drama comes after a dramatic 2017 incident that saw him being crushed after he accidentally pulled down a large stage prop.
The incident meant that he had to have a plate and 10 screws put into his fibula and another screw inserted in his ankle bone.
