Meat Loaf Devastated By No-show

by | 03 November 2007

American rock singer Meat Loaf cancelled a concert in Birmingham last night, days after walking off the stage halfway through a gig in Newcastle.

The 60-year-old had been due to perform at Birmingham's NEC but pulled out after being diagnosed with acute laryngitis.

Earlier this week he stunned fans by leaving a concert at the Metro Radio Arena after 70 minutes.

"Performing for my fans is the most important thing in the world to me. Over the years, I've gone on stage with a broken foot and an arrhythmic heart," Meat Loaf – real name Marvin Lee Aday – said.

"It was devastating having to come off stage in Newcastle but over time, I've reluctantly learned that I have to abide by what the doctors tell me to do."

The organisers of the NEC concert have confirmed that all tickets will be valid for the re-arranged gig on Thursday November 29th.

"We are sorry that Meat Loaf is unwell, and unable to perform - and understand that his fans will be disappointed," a statement said.

"As a venue we want our visitors to enjoy their experience at any concert or event, but cancellations such as these are beyond our control."

Meat Loaf is due to play the MEN Arena in Manchester and London's Wembley Arena before heading to Scandinavia as his Three Bats Tour continues.
