Singer Marilyn Manson was injured when a prop fell on him at a show at Hammerstein Ballroom in Midtown.

Video posted to Twitter shows the prop falling over as Manson started to climb it.


It reportedly took several minutes to get him out from under the prop. He was taken away on a stretcher.

The extent of his injuries are not yet known. The rest of the show was canceled.

Variety reports that Manson was performing a cover of the Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" when he began to climb a podium, causing it to wobble.

Manson fell backward and the prop fell on him. Soon the house and stage lights went off for several minutes and came back on with an announcer saying the show was over "due to injury."

It was not immediately clear whether any of Manson's concert dates will be postponed due to the injury.
