When Marilyn Manson cancelled a show in Toronto, Canada, last night (July 27), due to "an unforeseen illness", his current tourmate Rob Zombie stepped up with an extended set, and an airing of Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This).

The track is a Eurythmics cover that Manson made his own after its inclusion on his 1995 Smells Like Children EP.

So, technically Rob Zombie covering a Marilyn Manson song. Sort of.

Check it out below.

Few details are known about why Manson pulled out of the show, but the announcement was made extremely late in the day, with the crowd already gathered, and his backdrop hanging onstage.

“Marilyn Manson will not be performing tonight,” said a venue official, delivering the bad news. “If you are here solely to see Marilyn Manson, you may get a full refund if you leave now and have your ticket scanned out of the system. Full refunds are available at your point of purchase. Once again, Marilyn Manson will not be performing tonight due to an unforeseen illness.”

Check out the crowd's reaction below. Needless to say, they weren't happy...
