Marilyn Manson has cancelled nine shows on his current US tour after being injured when a piece of stage scenery fell onto him.

The musician was performing at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom on Saturday when two large guns fitted to scaffolding fell on him, seemingly after he tried to climb them. Video of the incident shows crew immediately run and lift the prop off him, although he does not immediately get up.

Manson was taken to hospital and is now reported to be recovering at home. A rep for the musician said that it is hoped the cancelled shows can be rescheduled.
