Manson’s concerts from October 2 in Boston to October 14 in Houston have all been cancelled, according to the singer’s rep. A total of 9 shows will reportedly be rescheduled at a later date, although no information about when and where have been released.

He is scheduled to next appear at his October 15 show in Grand Prairie, Texas. The rest of his schedule is packed for 2017 at tour dates across the country and Europe into December.

“The Beautiful People” singer was injured after he climbed a ladder on stage flanked by giant fake pistols that came down on top of him.

Witnesses told the Daily Mail people rushed the stage to help the singer, but it was several minutes before fans saw Manson carried off the stage on a stretcher. Video captured on social media shows him falling backward as the structure comes down.

Concert goers were told the rest of the concert was cancelled “due to injury.”
