Fish (real name: Kenny Wilson) was taken from Cologne's Koelnarena to a nearby hospital for treatment after the incident at the VIVA Comet Awards.
The incident occurred during a performance of Manson's cover of Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus." Fish was treated and released on Saturday. With his recovery expected to take several weeks, he will be forced to sit out the band's upcoming tour dates; it is unknown who will replace him on stage.
"Personal Jesus" is among the songs on Marilyn Manson's best-of set, "Let We Forget," due tomorrow (Sept. 28) via Interscope. The cut is No. 28 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and No. 37 on the Modern Rock Tracks tally.
The itinerary for Manson's Against All Gods fall U.S. tour is expected this week. At deadline, the band's only confirmed date is an Oct. 27 show at Las Vegas' House of Blues.
