American rocker Meat Loaf has collapsed on stage during a concert in Canada.The 68-year-old, whose real name is Marvin Lee Aday, was singing his 1993 hit I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That) when he fell and was rushed to hospital.
Video taken by fans at the concert show him bending over, dropping his microphone and falling to the floor before security personnel ran onto the stage to help him. Fans at the gig at the Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton, Alberta, were told to vacate the arena.
“I was scared. I didn’t know what to think,” 17-year-old fan Sophia Shandalla told the Edmonton Journal. “I didn’t know if it was real. All of the band stopped playing instantly,” said her mother, Lotta Shandalla.
The singer’s condition is not yet known, but the fall comes just days after he postponed two other shows – in Regina on Saturday and in Calgary on Tuesday – due to illness.
