MEAT LOAF collapsed last night during a performance in EDMONTON, ALBERTA and was taken to a hospital. The singer's spokesperson says dehydration was the cause of the event.
CBS NEWS reports, "A video of the performance at EDMONTON's JUBILEE AUDITORIUM showed the singer dropping his microphone and falling to the floor amid a performance of his classic 'I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)'. Musicians went to his side to help, and the music eventually stopped. MEAT LOAF's representatives told CBS NEW YORK he is 'stable and in good condition'."
MEAT LOAF has had ongoing health issues, having collapsed on stage in 2003 at LONDON's WEMBLEY ARENA. In 2011, he had another spell during a concert in PITTSBURGH, but finished the show, later blaming his blackouts on asthma issues.
