Marilyn Manson Cancels Quebec City Show at the Last Minute "Due to Illness"
Published Jul 22, 2016Marilyn Manson left fans booing in Quebec City last night (July 21) after pulling a last-minute no-show at the Centre Vidéotron "due to illness."
The situation has yet to be fully explained, but Manson's set cancellation was made after the doors had opened and first act Of Mice & Men had already performed. A statement was posted through Facebook explaining that Manson was sick and could not perform.
He's expected to back on the road with Of Mice & Men and tour headliners Slipknot for their July 23 show in Syracuse, NY.
The announcement was also made to fans waiting within the Centre Vidéotron, with it being explained by a rep that Manson would not be walking onstage. "C'est dommage, Il est tres malade," it was explained in French. You'll see the announcement and one fan's rather annoyed reaction down below.
The Quebec City cancellation comes off of a reportedly sub-par performance in Montreal the night before. Below, you'll find fan-shot footage of a fairly off-course saxophone solo from Manson, apparently met by some with disdain.
It's been a wild week for the shock rock icon. While at the Alternative Press Music Awards, he announced that a full-length titled Say10 is due next February. It was also revealed that some old merch of his is currently selling at pricey New York department store Barneys, though only as a bizarrely remodelled sleeveless Justin Bieber shirt that retails at an exorbitant $195 USD.
