The 49-year-old singer and songwriter Marilyn Manson had fans worried when he collapsed on stage at a concert in Texas. 


According to Jack Gorman from Houston Press, Manson was already weak while performing. He was holding on to his microphone for dear life and was shaking as well.

He collapsed right after performing "Sweet Dreams," and fans had been speculating about the reason. It was said that the collapse stemmed from Manson taking communion earlier that day. 


Of course, that wasn't the case, and his crew thought that food poisoning might be the cause, while others speculated that it could be heatstroke. 

Manson didn't give an explanation but thanked his Houston fans "for being understanding" and said on Twitter that he "ended up in doctor's care." He added:

"I gave it my best, and you guys were amazing." 


His fans appreciated the commitment to perform still and thanked him on Twitter. One user said he was standing at the barrier and saw Manson collapse. He told Manson: 

"I'm so glad you're okay!! Houston loves you so much!" 

A Twitter user known only as Evy said Manson must take care of himself and that his health is a priority. She assured him true fans wouldn't care about a cancelation, and that "we'll just catch the next one."


Earlier that evening, his team had to escort photographers away from the pit, telling them that Manson was "very ill" and preferred not having his photo taken. 

Manson also had to cancel a Toronto show back in July due to the flu. He resumed the regular scheduling and performed at Heavy Montreal the following day. 

Fans can look forward to his upcoming concerts. He will perform at Salt Lake City on August 22 before heading to Chula Vista for a show on August 24. 

On August 25 he will grace the stage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, and at the AK Chin Pavilion in Phoenix the following day.
