According to the Canadian Press, Gillett Entertainment Group and Live Nation have denied that Marilyn Manson has contracted the H1N1 virus (commonly known as swine flu), and have confirmed that he is still playing his last remaining Canadian tour date: tonight (Saturday, September 26) in Moncton, New Brunswick. (Manson also played last night in Halifax.)Although Manson announced online earlier this week that he had been diagnosed with swine flu, his revelation has since been removed from his Facebook page. (However, it is still up on his Twitter profile.) He subsequently wrote, "That illness tried and lost. I am fully functioning. Not sick. My mental health is still up for dispute. Don't worry, world. I am not contagious. Just my goddamn music is." Harvey Levin, owner and publisher of the TMZ Internet site and television series, said on yesterday's (Friday, September 25) TMZ TV broadcast (see video below) that Manson could be prosecuted for assault and battery if anyone contracted the swine flu from Manson after video surfaced of the singer blowing loads of snot on stage at a concert in Ottawa, Canada on Sunday, September 20 (the day before he revealed that he was "diagnosed" with the virus). Manson is continuing to tour in support of his latest album, "The High End of Low", which surfaced in May.
