Original Story:

Marilyn Manson hit the stage over the weekend for the first time since accidentally shattering his leg onstage in New York this past September. The performance took place as part of the ‘Ozzfest Meets Knotfest‘ festival in San Bernardino, CA and also marked his first live show since parting ways with bassist Jeordie “Twiggy Ramirez” White following a rape accusation.

Juan Alderete of The Mars Volta, etc. fame is said to have handled the bass duties for the show, though it is presently unclear if he is a permanent replacement. The set saw Manson perform from a special wheelchair, but as you can see in the below footage, he made good use of it.
