Meat Loaf Illness Addressed In Update On Facebook Page (Kind Of)

By: Chris Crum - April 15, 2013

Meat Loaf had to postpone a concert in Nottingham on Sunday. According to Reuters, the show was canceled just hours before the band was set to perform.

The official Meat Loaf Facebook page put out the following statement:

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


Please retain your original tickets, If for any reason you cannot attend, please contact the point of sale from tomorrow morning Monday 15 April.

Meat and everyone in the band and crew send love and apologies and thanks you for understanding.


As you can see, the statement does not specify which “members of the band” are having medical issues, but that Reuters report indicates Meat Loaf himself is indeed one of them, saying that “health problems continue to dog” him.

He has canceled a tour due to health issues in the past (when he had a cyst on his vocal cords), and a couple years ago, he reportedly collapsed on stage.

The current tour is supposed to be Meat Loaf’s farewell tour. It’s called: Last At Bat.
