Only a day after being hurt on Sept. 29 at Stage AE in Pittsburgh, shock rocker Marilyn Manson was injured in an onstage mishap during a show in New York City, the Associated Press reports, and has been forced to cancel his October shows.

While the Pittsburgh mishap only sidelined the show for a very short time, the Sept. 30 accident at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York ended up canceling the show.

Manson got messed up when he tried to climb a set piece — a prop pistol. Variety reports that Manson was performing a cover of the Eurythmics' “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” when Manson fell backward onstage and the prop fell on him. He will be recuperating at his home in Los Angeles.

Manson and his band just started the “Heaven Upside Down” tour two days ago in Maryland.

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
