Anyone who has ever been to a Marilyn Manson show knows what can happen while the shock rocker is onstage.
But the audience in Houston this weekend witnessed something that even Marilyn, himself, didn't expect.
The singer collapsed mid-rock-performance.
Before the 49-year-old Marilyn came out, Manson's touring partner, Rob Zombie, gave the crowd a heads-up that Marilyn wasn't feeling great, saying,
"Manson, don't be joining ME for the duets! You're too too sick, my dear friend.
Mr. Manson is feeling the weather most days more than ever and may even be dying, so that this could be his last performance, in which case, I've lost my opportunity to ever play live and support my family in the foreseeable future.
He’s probably bussin' it, feeling the crap. So, let's make enough noise for the Mare-man, so that he can hear us in the can.
I need a partner for the next song, so let's get a fucking chick up on this gory-ass stage and sing it loud and proud, and make him feel better."
Manson still gave performing a shot. He took the stage for his set, cut it short, then collapsed while singing his version of The Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These)."
It was captured on video:
"I ended up in doctor's office, but I gave it my best shot, and you guys and the doctor were amazing."
That injury caused him to cancel shows.
