Marilyn Manson has come down with the flu and collapsed onstage during a concert in Canada.

According to reports, about an hour into his Wednesday performance in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan's TCU Place, the shock rocker began vomiting several times then passed out during his song "Beautiful People."

Manson, whose concerts are chock full of theatrics, was helped off the stage when the band and stagehands realized that the incident was not part of the performance, Billboard reported.

TMZ added that the 44-year-old was not taken to the hospital but rather was taken to his hotel room to rest. Manson was feeling under the weather before the performance but felt worse when he took the stage, sources told the website.

He was reportedly still feeling "drained" but planned to make his next concert appearance in Calgary on Friday.

On a lighter note, Manson is in popular company, as Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga have also tossed their cookies mid-performance. However, The Ministry sincerely hoped that this one wouldn't become a trend.
