US rocker Meat Loaf collapses on stage during concert

NEW YORK: American rocker Meat Loaf collapsed on stage Thursday during a performance in Canada and was hospitalized in unknown condition.

The 68-year-old was performing at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton when he collapsed during the performance of his hit I’d Do Anything For Love.

While it wasn’t immediately clear whether the singer was just performing or in distress, members of his band and crew eventually rushed to his side. He was later reportedly transferred to a nearby hospital.”I thought it was a joke, I didn’t know what was going on because he was joking around throughout his set,” an attendee told CBC News in Edmonton.

The veteran performer has been touring through Canada since late May, though he had postponed two shows on June 11 and June 13 citing unspecified illness.
