US rock star Meat Loaf is stable and in good condition after collapsing on stage during a concert in Canada. Video footage from Thursday’s concert in Edmonton shows the singer, whose real name is Marvin Lee Aday, falling on stage during his performance.
Earlier in the week he had cancelled shows in Moose Jaw and Calgary, saying he was ill.
The sixty-eight-year-old is one of the most successful recording artists of all time with hits including Bat Out of Hell.
He was performing another hit, I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That), when he dropped his microphone and fell to the floor, video footage showed.
Meat Loaf previously collapsed in 2003 at a performance in London, and again in 2011, during a July concert in Pittsburgh, an incident which he later blamed on an asthma attack. The singer’s album Bat Out of Hell has sold more than forty-three million copies worldwide.
