Marilyn Manson has battled a couple of health issues during his current tour with Rob Zombie, and at last night’s show in Houston, Texas, the Antichrist Superstar collapsed on stage.

Shortly after finishing his cover of the Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams,” Manson can be seen walking away from the microphone and falling.  Throughout the song, he was visibly struggling to stand and using the microphone stand to stay upright.

Manson tweeted after the show that he “ended up in doctor’s care,” with food poisoning and heat poisoning being speculated. An exact illness, however, has not been confirmed.

Regardless of what led to this moment, we all hope Manson recovers soon and is back to 100 percent.
