Rock star Marilyn Manson on Saturday was pinned under a stage prop while performing a concert in New York City. The prop malfunction sent Manson to an area hospital and abruptly canceled the show.

Performing at the Hammerstein Ballroom, a prop with two giant guns positioned behind the singer fell on Manson when the singer appeared to climb the scaffolding hoisting them up. This seemingly caused the entire contraption to tip over.

The accident occured during a performance of breakout cover “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These),” a 1995 single that put Manson on the map and made him an MTV favorite.

A rep for Manson told Rolling Stone that the singer-songwriter is in the hospital. But no further word of his injuries has been disclosed. Manson reportedly fell off his stage Friday night during the Pittsburgh stop of his ongoing Heaven Upside Down tour, and said he “broke his ankle.”
