Marilyn Manson collapses onstage after four songs. And yes, there’s video.

This co-headlining tour with Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie isn’t going so well. Zombie has been holding up his end of the bargain, but there have been several shows where Manson has either (a) not been able to perform; or (b) not been able to finish the show.

Saturday night was variant (b). At a show in Texas, Manson collapsed in the midst of “Sweet Dreams.” The two reasons giving were “food poisoning” and “heat poisoning.”

Manson went onstage unwell. The Houston Press said:

The anti-Christ was in Texas and The Woodland’s crowd clamored for Satan’s little helper as time drew well past the announced set time. Just as the show was about to start the band’s tour manager escorted photographers from the pit and explained that Manson was feeling very ill and did not want his picture taken.

Oh, dear. Let’s go to the video.
