Singer Meat Loaf collapses during concert in Canada

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Rock singer Meat Loaf has collapsed on stage during a concert in Edmonton, Alberta.

He was taken to a hospital in unknown condition Thursday night.

The 68-year-old had canceled two other concerts in recent days citing ill health.

A video of the performance at Edmonton’s Jubilee Auditorium showed the singer dropping his microphone and falling to the floor. Musicians walked over to help, and the music eventually went silent.

Concertgoer Mikey McBryan says attendees were asked to vacate the arena.

A spokesman for Alberta Health Services said a patient was transported from the auditorium to a hospital, but the spokesman declined to identify the patient or provide an update on the person’s condition for privacy reasons.

Meat Loaf, whose real name is Marvin Lee Aday, is best known for his 1977 album “Bat Out of Hell.”
