Marilyn Manson collapses during Texas concert

Marilyn Manson was forced to cut his set short at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Texas on Saturday night after collapsing onstage.

According to a review from the Houston Chronicle, Manson's manager escorted photographers from the pit just before the show started, claiming Manson did not want his picture taken due to feeling "very ill". No cause for the rocker's illness has been revealed, but rumors say it was a combination of food poisoning and heat exhaustion.

It sounds like he's ready to get back on stage, as the rocker is set to perform in Denver on Monday night.

Houston Press reports there were "long breaks between songs" as the singer tried to battle his way though, and that he was "mostly stationary and visibly shaking at times". He later collapsed on a monitor after singing Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).

"My dear friend Mr. Manson is feeling under the weather", Rob Zombie said onstage later, before playing a cover of the Beatles' "Helter Skelter", which the pair usually performs as a duet. Roadies could be seen on the side of the stage worriedly contemplating on whether or not to assist him. He's probably on the bus feeling like crap. Then in November 2017, he struggled through a show in Italy while recovering from the injury.

He later tweeted, thanking fans for their understanding and explaining he'd sought medical care. He dropped his microphone and suddenly left the stage.
