Marilyn Manson recently spoke to Yahoo! Music about the recent incidents that led him to postpone his tour. When we discovered Manson dropped out of both Aftershock Festival and Freakers Ball, we knew he needed more than two weeks to recover. Manson has finally updated us, stating he will officially return to the stage on November 5th at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest festival in Devore, CA. The singer’s initial scheduled European tour for next month will go on as planned.
It was during his NYC show at the Hammerstein Ballroom last month on September 30th that a prop fell directly on top of him. The night prior to the accident, the singer fell off stage resulting in spraining his ankle. Despite his former keyboardist wanting Manson to suffer, many have been concerned about his well being.
Manson told Yahoo! Music:
“I only recently watched the video of it. I can see how it could look terrifying. It was terrifying for me, because the truss was not secured properly.”
The shock rocker explained how made a desperate attempt to prevent the prop from collapsing:
“I wasn’t trying to climb it. It started to fall and I tried to push back and I didn’t get out the way in time. I’m not sure what I hit my head on, but it did fall onto my leg and break the fibula in two places. The pain was excruciating.”
Yahoo! Music reported that once Manson was hospitalized:
“Doctors inserted a plate and 10 screws into the bone, plus another screw through his ankle bone, then wrapped a solid cast around his leg. It often takes people with such injuries between 12 and 16 weeks to recover, according to Healthline.”
Based on the metal framework that fell over, the Antichrist Superstar is very lucky since his injuries could have been more severe.
“It definitely could have crushed my skull and my ribs. 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.”
Later, Manson revealed his biggest regret about his injury:
“The thing that pisses me off most is that I’m not onstage, because that’s where I should be. And with a cast on my leg, it’s hard to talk about the excitement of the tour. It got cut off right as I was about to put it into second gear. But I’ll be back there really shortly and it’s going to be as exciting as it was starting out.”
It has been roughly two weeks since his accident and now the artist has announced rescheduled tour dates.
All tickets for original performances will be honored at the newly announced dates. Unfortunately, original dates for October 8th in Columbus, Ohio and October 26th in Phoenix, AZ have been affected and are unable to be rescheduled. Refunds are available for those two shows.
Tickets for the rescheduled dates will go on sale to the public next Friday (20th) at 10 am.
