The 48-year-old was performing a cover of Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" when two large prop guns held together with metal scaffolding collapsed on him, The Guardian reported Sunday.

The shock rocker's canceled Camden concert is one of several scrapped dates following Manson's injury at the hands of a pair of giant prop pistols onstage on Manhattan this past weekend.

Morata was a doubt before the game, but manager Antonio Conte has revealed that he decided he needed to risk his number nine. The Spaniards take on Italy and Albania in their World Cup qualifiers but the former Real Madrid man will miss both matches.

Marilyn Manson has canceled several upcoming tour dates, including a scheduled appearance at an upcoming metal music festival in Camden, after being injured in an onstage accident in NY over the weekend. Some concert-goers say he was attempting to climb the prop when it fell. Manson's representative released the following statement... No word yet on the extent of Manson's injuries. Existing tickets will be honored at the rescheduled shows, which have not yet been announced. He's reportedly doing okay, and has cancelled tour dates through October 14, but is planning to return to the stage soon.

Manson's team would not give specific details on his sustained injuries but told Variety: "Manson suffered an injury towards the end of an incredible NYC show". Manson had just last week launched his "Heaven Upside Down" tour to promote his tenth studio album, to be officially released on October 6. He has since returned home to Los Angeles to recuperate, and is canceling the next nine shows on his Heaven Upside Down tour.

Fans of the singer tweeted the incident and said that before he was taken to the hospital, Mason laid on the stage for about 15 minutes.
