Marilyn Manson's collapse on stage in Canada was a result of suffering with the flu.
TMZ reports that the controversial rocker had been feeling bad 'all day long' before taking the stage in Saskatoon, Canada.
However, despite suffering from flu-like symptoms, the star did not want to call off the gig.
The rocker was halfway through his encore, playing the song The Beautiful People, when he keeled over during the performance, after vomiting several times on stage.
Sources told the website that the singer was not taken to the hospital, instead returning to his hotel room to get some rest.
Marilyn still feels 'drained' but is said to be focusing on his recovery and his performance on Thursday night in Calgary, the insider said.
A fan in the crowd managed to capture the moment on tape, which clearly pictures the musician kneeling down to belt out the song.
Marilyn then starts to sway, before turning to the side and falling down completely.
Fans at the concert were left confused, as the band continued to play without the 44-year-old's vocals.
It soon became clear it wasn't part of the act, when two stagehands appeared to help the star.
The apparent collapse comes after the singer was involved in a fight in Switzerland in December.
Following the brutal altercation, he needed 24 stitches to reattach his ear to his head.here to win an iPhone5!
