It does not appear Marilyn Manson sustained any catastrophic injuries following Saturday night’s mid-concert accident in New York, but the rocker will be taking some time off while he recuperates at home in Los Angeles.

Manson’s upcoming concerts between Monday in Boston and Oct. 14 in Houston — nine shows in all — have been canceled, according to a representative. Manson intends to reschedule these performances at a later date, though nothing specific has been announced.

To recap: Manson was rushed to a New York City hospital Saturday night after a large stage prop shaped like a pair of guns fell onto him roughly one hour into his performance at Hammerstein Ballroom. The concert ended immediately and Manson was taken away on a stretcher after EMT workers attended to him for several minutes. No further details on the injuries he suffered are available.

His tour schedule picks up the very next day after the last cancelation (an Oct. 15 show in Grand Prairie, Texas), so fans may have the chance to see him return in just two weeks. After that, he has a busy tour schedule for the rest of the year, playing shows throughout the West Coast and in Europe through early December.

Manson is set to release his tenth studio album, Heaven Upside Down, on Friday.
