SASKATOON -- Concert promoters says Marilyn Manson's upcoming show is on despite the shock rocker's recent collapse in Saskatchewan.
Manson was performing at TCU Place in Saskatoon on Wednesday night when audience members say he started vomiting.
Liam Richards, who was in the front row, says the show was good, but Manson was obviously sick near the end and had to be carried off the stage.
Richards says the band finished the song and then the house lights came up.
TCU Place CEO Bob Korol says it's his understanding that Manson went back to his hotel to rest.
Sandra Merz with Live Nation Entertainment would not comment on why Manson was ill, but said his show at the Stampede Corral in Calgary on Friday night will go ahead.
