Larger than life superstar Meat Loaf (a.k.a. Marvin Lee Aday) collapsed on stage Thursday night (June 16) during a show in Edmonton, Alberta. Aday was in the middle of “I Would Do Anything For Love” when he slumped over and fell.
At around 9:37pm ambulances and fire trucks arrived and at about 10 pm Meat Loaf was taken to the hospital, reported NME. His current condition is unknown.
Once concert attendee said, “We weren’t sure at first whether it was part of the act or it was something for real.”
In 2003, Meat Loaf collapsed on stage at a gig in London and in 2011 he fell over during a concert in Pittsburgh.
In statement to Rolling Stone, a representative for Meatloaf confirmed the singer was hospitalized after suffering from “severe dehydration,” but is currently in “stable and in good condition.”
