Marilyn Manson

Don't Worry

... It's Just the Flu

Marilyn Manson isn't dead ... he was just suffering from a bad case of the rumble guts last night when he passed out on stage in Canada after coming down with the flu ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the rocker tell TMZ ... Manson had been feeling like crap all day long (from various flu symptoms) ... but didn't wanna call off his concert in Canada.

Problem is, when MM hit the stage, he started feeling worse -- vomiting on stage several times before collapsing in the middle of his hit "Beautiful People."

Sources say Manson was NOT taken to the hospital -- instead, he went back to his hotel room and got some rest. We're told he still feels "drained" -- but he's focusing on recovery and is determined to perform tomorrow night in Calgary.

The norovirus, also called stomach flu, is not an actual flu virus. It has been going around also. That is the one that makes you throw up.


The regular flu has been starting with a sore throat, then you get a runny nose, then sinus congestion with a sinus headache that is nonstop, exhaustion, loss of appetite, then coughing up thick phlegm. I don't think he had all of that.


Some reports said he was unconcious. Do people normally pass out from puking?

Influenza is a respiratory ailment... there is no such thing as the stomach flu.

TMZ: Its NOT the FLU--its NOROVIRUS; you dont throw up from the flu you throw up from norovirus. influenza and the stomach virus are two separate viruses.

You guys are so childish. Manson has never been shy about is drug or alcohol use. He admits feely ALL about it. If this had anything to do with drugs, he would have said it. He has no reason to die. The flu is rampant right now, and quite bad. Obviously he had/has the flu.

I saw Manson live december 3rd in Amsterdam. A damn solid show that exceeded all my expectations [in a positive way] ! I went to see Rob Zombie and enjoyed Manson as well. He has been continually touring so catching the flu while being around thousands of people on a daily basis is not so strange. I don't think he's ill from alcohol of drugs though. Whatever the reason is, I wish him well and behind all that scary stuff onstage I'm sure he's really a very nice guy.

I was there. He was fine on his feet during the show and was all around dope up until then. Showed zero signs of excessive drug or alcohol use.
