Fans at Meat Loaf’s concert in Edmonton on June 16 were completely terrified when the singer collapsed on stage mid-performance. The 68-year-old was rushed to the hospital, and scarily, his condition is still unknown.
We are all pulling for Meat Loaf, 68, after his on stage collapse during a show in Edmonton on June 16. A concertgoer captured the scary moment when Meat Loaf went to the ground mid-song, and even though he was quickly hospitalized, an update on his condition has not been given.
Meat Loaf was singing one of his biggest hits, “I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That),” when he dropped his mic and slowly fell to the floor. Band members rushed to his side as the music stopped, and attendees of the show were asked to evacuate the area.
“He wasn’t on cue, but it was forgivable,” one concertgoer admitted, of Meat Loaf’s performance prior to the collapse. “We’re all loving it and going crazy, and then it took a turn for the worst.”
Alberta Health Services confirmed that a patient was transported from the venue to the hospital, but the identity was not confirmed. Meat Loaf’s camp has not yet responded to requests for updates on his condition.
Meat Loaf had cancelled two concerts earlier this week, in Moose Jaw and Calgary, due to illness, although he did not specify what was wrong. The singer actually collapsed on stage before, too: In 2011, he was helped by paramedics in Pittsburgh, then finished his show, and in 2003, he passed out at a show in London and was hospitalized.
The 68-year-old has previously admitted to suffering from asthma, and also has a medical condition that causes him to have an irregular heartbeat. We’re pulling for him and will update you with any new information.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Meat Loaf will be okay?! Are you shocked this happened?
