Marilyn Manson 'has meltdown and rants at fans' during show

Marilyn Manson reportedly had a "meltdown" on a stage in New York this week where he delivered "incoherent rants" before ending the show.

The American artist was performing at a venue in Huntington when he apparently began rambling about the audience's "lack of love" among other subjects.

Fans then reportedly began chanting "F**k you Manson" after he dropped his microphone and left the stage.

One audience member wrote on Instagram after the gig: “I wish I could say last night’s show was amazing, but it was just awful."

“Manson came out with a bang but the whole thing deteriorated very quickly," they continued. "A couple songs in, he went into a conversation with the crowd about how much we loved him (or not). Asked for cheering and the usual rock star ego stuff.”

“I think we all started to realise 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.

House lights came on a couple minutes later. I don’t think they completed more than 4 songs. It was the strangest, saddest and worst concert I’ve ever been to, and I’ve been to a lot.”

Last October, Manson was rushed to the hospital after a stage prop of two giant pistols fell on him during a concert in New York City.

Speaking to Yahoo, the singer said the pain was “excruciating,” and said a plate as well as 10 screws were inserted into his leg bone.

“It definitely could have crushed my skull and my ribs,” he added at the time. “I have some minor bruising in that area, but it took six guys to pull it off of me. It was like wrestling a giant iron monster.”
