The last time Marilyn Manson performed in New York City was five months ago in September, and things didn’t go so well. He was crushed by a stage prop which prematurely ended his performance, and ended up in the hospital with a broken leg.
It looks like Manson’s luck hasn’t gotten any better. As Brooklyn Vegan first reported, his set on Thursday night at The Paramount in Huntington, ended after just four songs and a strange stream-of-consciousness rambling that culminated with Manson urging the crowd to tell him they loved him! Manson seemed to have a mental breakdown and allegedly stormed off the stage after dropping his mic and kicking over an amplifier.
Manson’s band was left with no option but to improvise during the whole debacle, which ended after just four songs according to the social media post of one fan who attended the gig, reports NME. Fans reportedly started a “F*ck you Manson” chant after the Sweet Dreams hitmaker walked away.
“I wish I could say last night’s show was amazing, but it was just awful,” one fan wrote on Instagram. “Manson came out with a bang but the whole thing deteriorated very quickly. A couple songs in, he went into a conversation with the crowd about how much we loved him (or not). Asked for cheering and the usual rock star ego stuff.”
“I think we all started to realize something was wrong. Once he was temporarily satisfied, it didn’t improve. They would start songs only to screech them to a halt a minute in. There were very drawn out versions of songs where Manson mostly rambled on about our lack of love and other bizarre things. After an hour and fifteen minutes of this, he threw his microphone and left the stage. House lights came on a couple minutes later. I don’t think they completed more than 4 songs.”
“It was the strangest, saddest and worst concert I’ve ever been to, and I’ve been to a lot,” the detailed post concluded.
Understandably, fans were furious after the incident. On the venue’s Instagram of a picture from the show, many fans commented demanding refunds. One wrote, “The worst event I ever experienced. He should be held accountable for his actions and not get paid for this.” Another said, “3 songs in and the dude had a mental breakdown or was a drunk dick. Remember @marilynmanson we pay $$$ to see you, I’m getting a fucking refund. Pissed! Waste of time.”
