Shock-Rock kingpin Marilyn Manson abruptly ended a concert in Huntingdon, New York, apparently suffering an onstage meltdown in the process.
Reports suggest that the singer delivered several incoherent rants after only four songs, whilst his band improvised around him, before Manson dropped his microphone and stormed offstage. This prompted the crowd to turn, and begin to chant ‘Fuck you Manson’ as he made his exit. You can see fan footage of the incident below.
Several fans have also taken to social to describe the incident, with many fans apathetic about the incident, rather than angry. “I wish I could say last night’s show was amazing, but it was just awful,” one fan wrote. “Manson came out with a bang but the whole thing deteriorated very quickly. 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.
Tried seeing Marilyn Manson tonight. We have seen him on 4 other occasions and always entertained. This time due to being so drugged, drunk, or sick unfortunately this concert was a complete failure. I know what you’re going to say but it is sad to see a complete spiral downward of a human due to drugs/drinking. Which might have been from being in pain from his accident a few months ago. Marilyn please get the help you need and we will see you next time and we do love you
