Marilyn Manson ended his performance Saturday night at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, Texas early due to heat poisoning.
According to Houston Press, Manson’s tour manager escorted photographers from the pit prior to the start of the shock rocker’s concert, explaining that the singer was feeling very ill and did not want his picture taken. Manson “gave it his all” during the four-song set even though he was “mostly stationary and visibly shaking at times.” Upon finishing “Sweet Dreams”, Manson “collapsed on top of one of the monitors,” the site reported. “Roadies could be seen on the side of the stage worriedly contemplating on whether or not to assist him.”
Marilyn’s tourmate Rob Zombie played his usual set, although the planned duet with Manson didn’t materialize. “My dear friend Mr. Manson is feeling under the weather,” Rob told the crowd, according to HoustonPress. “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. This is ‘Helter Skelter’.”
Late last month, Manson canceled a show in Toronto, Ontario, Canada minutes before showtime because he was suffering from “the flu.”
