Officials at Six Flags in Darien Lakes, N.Y., are invoking a contractual clause to exclude Manson when Ozzfest stops there on August 11.

Officials with the venue have said some people in the area are not comfortable with Six Flags hosting Manson. Manson is known for his outrageous and controversial stage performances, which have drawn protests in some cities.

Manson told Rolling Stone people regard him as dangerous because he refuses to say that what he does is show business.

Ozzfest, which features the heavy hitters of metal and hard rock, has consistently ranked as one of the top concert draws of the year.

It’s not known whether Manson, known for his ghastly, cadaverous look and macabre lyrics, is banned from other Six Flag venues around the country.
