Published Oct 13, 2017Marilyn Manson was forced to postpone a series of tour dates after an onstage accident that left him hospitalized a few weeks back. Now, the shock rocker has opened up about his injury and is readying himself to return to the road for a string of make-up shows in support of his latest album Heaven Upside Down.
In a new interview with Yahoo!, Manson revealed that he has only recently seen the video footage of the accident, confirming that it was indeed "terrifying."
"I wasn't trying to climb it," he explained. "It started to fall and I tried to push back and I didn't get out the way in time. I'm not sure what I hit my head on, but it did fall onto my leg and break the fibula in two places. The pain was excruciating."
He also acknowledged, however, that the damage could have been much worse. ""It definitely could have crushed my skull and my ribs," he said. "I have some minor bruising in that area, but it took six guys to pull it off of me. It was like wrestling a giant iron monster."
Thankfully for fans, Manson is recovering well and has already announced a rescheduled touring itinerary. He'll return to North America following a fall jaunt to Europe.
His cancelled Toronto show will now take place on February 15 at Rebel. See the full list of upcoming shows below.
