Shock rocker Marilyn Manson was injured onstage during a concert in NY at the Hammerstein Ballroom Saturday night, after a stage prop appeared to fall on him. "He is being treated at a local hospital", said a statement from the singer's representative.

Manson was three dates into his Heaven Upside Down Tour, due to end in December with a series of United Kingdom performances.

Manson's guitarist, Tyler Bates, indicated that the injuries were serious enough to stop concerts but were not life-threatening.

According to some gig-goers, the singer had been attempting to climb the prop before they gave way and fell on top of him. This incident occurred a few days before the release of the tenth album of the rocker, gothic, Heaven, Upside Down, and then the tour of the same name had begun two days earlier.

Videos of the incident captured a surreal scene, with some audience members gasping and others continuing to rock out; the band played on for several measures even after Manson went down.

Manson is scheduled to perform in Boston on Monday night.

The music stopped when they realised Manson wasn't getting back up, as production crewmembers rushed to the star's aid. However, he did suffer an injury and the bad news is that he'll be missing the next nine shows as he recuperates.

Manson had to be taken away on a stretcher.

In a recent Guardian interview, the singer pretended to attack the interviewer and resorted to whacking him in the privates when he asked a question Manson didn't like. Heaven Upside Down is still set for release October 6.

The boys, who were both 18 at the time, were said to have been fans of Manson.

'Manson hopes to return to the stage soon, more details on upcoming shows to follow'.
