Marilyn Manson is, obviously, no stranger to theatrics and weirdness. If you’re familiar with his music or his shows, you know he’s not afraid to get a little weird with it. That’s what his fans love about him.
But some fans in Saskatoon, Canada were left very confused last night when the musician warbled and swayed his way through part of “The Beautiful People” before collapsing just an hour into the show. He fell over onstage as his bandmates kept playing and was eventually dragged away by roadies. One fan captured video of the whole thing:
Apparently, no explanation was given to the audience as the house lights went up. Twitter is buzzing today with news of the story, and rumor has it that the flu played a part:
I don’t think drugs played a role in Manson’s collapse on stage.

Yes, Manson did collapse onstage & was rushed away. But don’t be pricks & complain about it; get f-ing over yourselves & be supportive fans.

Word from the Manson family is his stage collapse was due to flu, but with MM you can never be too sure I guess…
