Marilyn Manson cancels spring Russian tour

Russian concert ticket broker Sibparter announced on Thursday that American musician Marilyn Manson has cancelled his upcoming spring concert tour in Russia.

Manson was scheduled to give concerts in Kazan, Samara, Novosibirsk, Omsk, Chelyabinsk, Krasnoyarsk and Nizhny Novgorod. Sources close to the musician disclosed that Manson's decision to cancel his Russian appearances can be attributed to his dissatisfaction with the concert organizers who arranged his mid-December show in Yekaterinburg, according to Ria Novosti.

Reportedly, organizers were unable to accommodate Manson's request to keep the venue's temperature above 62 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the concert. Spokespeople for the Yekaterinburg venue have since dismissed the allegation.

Manson's management informed organizers behind the cancelled Novosibirsk concert that he is receptive to performing in Russian cities at a later date, Ria Novosti reports.
