Marilyn Manson was hospitalized on Saturday night after he was injured during a set at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom, according to Variety

The singer was reportedly performing a cover of Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” when he decided to climb a stage scaffolding framed by two giant fake guns. According to video posted by The Guardian, the prop collapsed on him or caused him to fall backward.

“Manson suffered an injury toward the end of an incredible NYC show,” a representative for him told Variety. “He is being treated at a local hospital.”
