Manson had just last week launched his "Heaven Upside Down" tour to promote his tenth studio album, to be officially released on October 6.
Manson's rep added, "The shows from Boston, October 2 through Houston, October 14 will be rescheduled for a later date".
Marilyn Manson has canceled several upcoming tour dates, including a scheduled appearance at an upcoming metal music festival in Camden, after being injured in an onstage accident in NY over the weekend. He was knocked out, according to reports, and lay on stage for about 15 minutes before he was transported to a local hospital. Some concert-goers say he was attempting to climb the prop when it fell. Eventually the house lights came up and an announcer said that "due to injury", the show was over.
