I've never really understood how someone could possibly think they ever deserve a refund for a live performance, no matter how unenjoyable it may have been for them, but here we are. Apparently, people are perilously pissed at the God of Fuck for his recent performance in Huntington, New York..

How pissed, you ask? Exactly this much:

Marilyn Manson's sold-out show at the Paramount does indeed appear to have included extended bits of mid-song rambling and a general disregard for time, but shouldn't both of those things be expected to occasionally pop off at a show? As Brooklyn Vegan reported, some attendees have even taken to the venue’s Instagram page to express their severely misguided desire for a refund. Others took to Reddit, including user gimp1124, who seemed surprised that a rock star might be wasted:

There's no more to it. I had the meet and greet. He was wasted. He was worse on stage. Rambled on and on about us loving him. Here's the set Reflecting Deep six Rambling on and on for minutes Disposable teens (cut short) He's off stage for 5-10 Back and rambles for 20 min about who knows what Saturnalia (poorly played riff over and over for 10+min into lunchbox riff with him doing spoken word for 15 min. Stumbled off stage. Band finished lunchbox the right way. Gods gonna cut you down house music

So not only did we get short show in nyc when dummy pulled the guns down now this. At least the tix are only 95$

And now, of course, some Instagram posts from the night in question:

I wish I could say last nights show was amazing, but it was just awful. Manson came out with a bang but the whole thing deteriorated very quickly. A couple songs in, he went into a conversation with the crowd about how much we loved him (or not). Asked for cheering and the usual rock star ego stuff. That’s fine, and everyone did their best to scream as long as we could. But once it got to be 10 minutes of begging for adoration and no music, I think we all started to realize something was wrong. Once he was temporarily satisfied, it didn’t improve. They would start songs only to screech them to a halt a minute in. There were very drawn out versions of songs where Manson mostly rambled on about our lack of love and other bizarre things. After an hour and fifteen minutes of this, he threw his microphone and left the stage. House lights came on a couple minutes later. I don’t think they completed more than 4 songs. ▪️ It’s clear he was under the influence of something. Which, let’s be honest, is not that strange for a rock star. But this was something different. He couldn’t seem to pull it together to deliver a performance even mediocre at best. It was distressing to see an artist you care about in such a bad state. Many people were yelling “Fuck you!”, chanting and booing, especially at the end. But I wasn’t really angry. I was sad and bewildered. He seemed desperately in need of emotional and physical care. With the injury, the situation with Twiggy and the death of his father hitting him within a few months, it is easy to see how this could happen (though I can’t speak for how he really feels inside, of course). Maybe it was a one-time bad night. We all have those sometimes. But if not, I really hope he gets help because what I witnessed was not good. It was the strangest, saddest and worst concert I’ve ever been to, and I’ve been to a lot. #marilynmanson

Manson is currently on tour in support of last year's critically acclaimed album Heaven Upside Down. The tour was briefly interrupted last year when Manson was injured during a performance. At some point this year, he is expected to contribute to Lil Uzi Vert's freestyle rock album alongside frequent collaborator Tyler Bates.
