The stage was set. Fans were ready. Then a stagehand comes up to the stage and informs the crowd in Toronto that Marilyn Manson wouldn't be able to play that night. Ten minutes later, Manson's social media accounts confirmed the statement. It was poor form. Fans were upset.
The next day, Manson posted that he was unable to perform due to the flu, but would be making an appearance at Heavy Montreal the following day.
Marilyn Manson was unable to perform on his and Rob Zombie’s Twins Of Evil tour in Toronto last night due to the flu. Manson is recovering and is set to perform at all scheduled dates starting tomorrow at Heavy Montreal.

On stage at Heavy Montreal, Zombie welcomed Manson to the stage to perform their cover of The Beatles' "Helter Skelter" and Zombie joked about Manson “being a lover of all things cotton.”
Having a great time in Montreal, Manson posted an image of him "doing drugs" – so hip, so cool – and then getting cuffed by either security or cops. It's 2018 and Manson is still Mr. Edgy over here.
