Opening artist Alice Glass, who was watching the set to the side of the stage, appeared noticeably distraught after running over to his side.

Marilyn Manson’s headlining show Saturday night at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom ended early after he was seriously injured by a stage prop.

According to multiple reports and fan-shot video (see below), a large prop featuring a pair of guns fell onto Manson just after he and his band finished a performance of “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This),” roughly one hour into the show. He was carried off on a stretcher, promptly ending the concert.

The video appears to show an explosion taking place, and several seconds later, the structure supporting the guns giving way, causing it to topple over onto Manson.

At this time, the extent of Manson’s injuries are not known. A rep for the artist confirmed the performer suffered an injury, but did not provide further details.
