Marilyn Manson performed a lackluster and abbreviated set last night (Thursday, February 15) at The Paramount in Huntington, New York, causing many fans to lash out at the singer on social media demanding a refund.
According to Newsday, Manson delivered had his back to the crowd for most of the set and seemingly confused his own band by his actions as several songs were started and stopped.
“He was too messed up and couldn’t perform,” one concertgoer told Newsday. “It was disappointing.”
“You can’t even call this a show,” another fan said. “I’ve been a fan since I was five years old. I grew up listening to him, but he’s dead to me at this point.”
A number of people who went to the concert took to social media to express their displeasure and to ask for their money back.
“@Ticketmaster I want a refund for the 2 tickets I bought to the @marilynmanson concert tonight @TheParamountNY,” one fan tweeted. “$180+ special t on 2 tickets to a rescheduled show & we get him walking off stage midshow? This is unacceptable”
Another person wrote: “Marilyn Manson put on the WORST show I have ever seen. Played 5 songs, bitched about people not saying “I Love You” and walked off #MarilynManson #worstconcert #refund”
Marilyn is on the road supporting his latest album, “Heaven Upside Down”, which was released in October.
Manson’s injury to his lower leg from a freak accident on stage during a concert last fall in New York City resulted in the postponement of nine tour dates.
A short time later, longtime Manson bassist Twiggy Ramirez (real name Jeordie White) was fired from the group following allegations of sexual assault.
Manson returned to touring last November.
