Marilyn Manson injured in stage accident

Marilyn Manson has postponed nine dates of his Heaven Upside Down tour in the US after he was injured onstage in New York when a prop fell on him.

A spokesman said he will be recuperating at home in Los Angeles but declined to specify the extent of the singer's injuries.

The accident occurred about 45 minutes into the band's set at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom, during their cover of Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)."

At the centre of the stage was a podium, framed by two giant fake pistols, which Manson began to climb. The podium wobbled dramatically, Manson fell backward and then the prop fell upon him - the band kept playing for several moments until they noticed the singer was not getting up.

Both the house and stage lights remained down for several minutes as roadies placed a dropcloth over the podium.

Eventually the house lights came up and an announcer said that "due to injury," the show was over.
