A few weeks ago, several New York Marilyn Manson fans saw a prop fall directly on top of him while he was performing the song “Sweet Dreams.” Since seeing him being carried out on a stretcher, we’ve all been feeling concerned, aside from his former keyboardist. The night before this incident, Manson fell off the stage and allegedly sprained his ankle in Pittsburgh during “The Beautiful People.” These accidents have made it clear the singer would embark a mandatory recovery break.
The latest we’ve heard about the Antichrist Superstar was when he announced cancelling two weeks worth of shows. However, it looks like he needs more than two weeks. His first show back was set to be at the Freaker’s Ball on October 15th in Grand Prairie,TX. However, he canceled appearances both there and at the Aftershock Festival a week later (the 22nd). In an official statement by event organizers, Manson and Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes will no longer be performing at the festival. Butcher Babies and Palaye Royale will be joining instead. While the band have three shows in between those two dates (Tulsa, Denver and Salt Lake City), they haven’t officially been cancelled yet. We’d assume they probably will be, so if you’re in one of those markets, make sure you check with the venue/promoter first.

“Due to circumstances out of our control, Marilyn Manson & Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes will no longer be joining us at this year’s Aftershock Festival. Check the artist’s social media for any official statements.
Marilyn Manson’s highly anticipated album Heaven Upside Down was finally released last Friday (6) and just yesterday, we were able to watch his video for the song “SAY10” that features Johnny Depp. It’s only a matter of time until we hear an update on the shock rocker’s condition.
