Meat Loaf Cancels Concert, Blames Illness

Meat Loaf

Meat Loaf and several of his band members got sick over the weekend and were forced to cancel a show in Europe. The singer did not specify the nature of the illness but said that the Nottingham show would be rescheduled for May 20.

Meat Loaf wrote on Facebook that “several members of the band” were feeling ill and could not perform. The singer apologized for the canceled show, writing:

“Nottingham, We are very sorry to announce that tonight’s performance has had to be postponed due to medical reasons afflicting several members of the band. We will be back though and will be back Monday May 20th, 2013. Meat and everyone in the band and crew send love and apologies and thanks you for understanding.”

The announcement was made a few hours before the Nottingham show. Meat Loaf told fans to keep their tickets for the show on May 20. Fans that can’t attend will be able to get refunds for their tickets.

According to Reuters, the singer is currently touring Europe on his “Last At Bat” tour. Meat Loaf has been experiencing health problems for years and many believe that this will be the last time that he hits the road.

Meat Loaf said: “I outweigh (Mick) Jagger by about 100 pounds (45 kg) and that counts for something. He hasn’t seen the wear and tear.”

Meat Loaf’s album Bat Out Of Hell is one of the biggest selling albums of all-time. It has sold more than 43 million copies to date.
