Marilyn Manson's return to the stage didn't go as many had planned.

He was back performing for the first time after an onstage injury forced the singer to cancel a host of performances.

Four months on, Manson had what is being described as a 'meltdown' and cut the show short after only singing five songs.

Fans who were at the gig said that he went on several incoherent rants, and repeatedly told the audience to say they love him.

The 49 year old then threw his microphone away and stormed off stage.

One concertgoer posted on Instagram that it was the strangest, saddest and worst concert she had ever been at.

His representatives made no comment on the incident.
