Marilyn Manson Collapses Onstage

Marilyn Manson collapsed during an encore last night, according to witnesses.

Some fans initially thought his vomiting and collapse during the encore were part of the stage show, but others saw emergency medical technicians attend the backstage area.

Apparently the band had to continue playing as the music was locked to a click track, but technicians reportedly told the drummer to stop playing.

Detailed reports are still scarce, so here's the twitter messages that paint the picture so far:

Did Manson party too hard, or could it be part of the show after all? Let us know what you think in the comments.

    Cause if he said something that would mean an opinion and we all know those aren't allowed round here

    The band couldn't stop playing because they were locked into a click track? Like physically locked to it? I would stop playing if my lead signer just passed out.

    I think that perhaps having been around him for a while, never knowing what to expect, there's probably an understanding that no matter what happens, they're to keep playing. I mean, they'd probably make exceptions for something like what happened to Dime, but aside from that...

    I guess the drugs don't like him anymore... Seriously though, I hope is alright.

    Just like anyone else he's gotta hit rock bottom before he can start getting better. As much as I've moved on from listening to his music, he's a talented guy and I hope he can get healthy ASAP. I wish him the best.

    Poor guy. No matter what you think of his music, having that happens still sucks.

    He just had a terrible flu when he passed out. He didn't have to go to the hospital or anything and he's resting for the end of the tour.

    I don't get the click track part. What happens when the musicians stop playing anyway, do their friggin heads explode or wat.

    If I had to stop playing my guitar for an extended period then yes, my head would explode.

    If you play in a band that uses a lot of prerecorded synth parts, piano, aux. percussion and so on then you use a click track...it isn't a cop-out what-so-ever it is just a means of staying in time with the prerecorded material. Examples of a few bands that use prerecorded material would be Static-X, White/Rob Zombie ect. ect. For those of you who do not know what a click track is... it is just a metronome set to the tempo of the song they are playing.

    I love his music. And he put on a hell of a show last year in Atlanta. Hope he's alright.

    Another day at the office. How many times has he ODed? Maybe he forgot to do some drugs for this show and fooled his system, but who knows. Haven't followed what Manson has been up to in a while.

    I hope hes alright. Also is it just me or does he look like Frank N Furter from Rocky Horror Picture Show in that pic? (if anyone has watched that movie i'm referring to the "pool scene")

    The man needs a serious break... Get the shit straight.... Then give us another Antichrist or Mechanical Animals... Or Holy Wood... That was when he was at his creative bests... Then the drugs and failed relationships clouded everything... Like I said... He needs a break and get his shit straight.

    Publicists reported afterwards that he has the flu and is still recovering. I sure as hell couldn't put on a show if i had the flu.

    "Apparently the band had to continue playing as the music was locked to a click track, but technicians reportedly told the drummer to stop playing." What a joke.

    Aw. Saw it coming though. He put on a fairly good show in December, but you could tell something is up. Could just be general unhealthyness. I mean, he's always been unhealthy, but he might be getting too frail to jump around like a maniac on stage.
    venture99
    if we are lucky maybe he threw up his vocal cords so he can stop making music. i hate him. such a freak
    RickyThomson
    Probably vomited over the thought of how many people attended his concert just to send twitter updates.
