Last night’s show at the Glen Helen Amphitheater in San Bernadino marked Manson‘s first performance after he broke his leg in two places a few weeks ago during a concert in New York. At Ozzfest Meets Knotfest, Manson performed in a wheelchair while wearing a hospital gown and pointed a fake assault rifle at the audience during the song “We Know Where You Fucking Live”.
According to The San Bernardino Sun, it was clear to the audience that the weapon wasn’t real and the concert attendees didn’t seem to be offended by the stunt, although some people did find the gimmick to be “lame.”
San Bernardino was the site of a horrific terror attack less than two years ago when a total of 14 people were killed and 22 more were injured during a mass shooting at the Inland Regional Center.
The song “We Know Where You Fucking Live”, from Manson‘s latest album, “Heaven Upside Down”, features lyrics relating to gunfire: “I love the sound of shell hitting the ground, man” and “Fire away,” along with, “It’s time to just kill this crowd / And scream as fucking loud…”
