ROCK SINGER MEAT Loaf has collapsed on stage during a concert in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

The Canadian Press reports he was taken to a hospital in unknown condition last night.

He had cancelled two other concerts in recent days — in Regina on Saturday and in Calgary on Tuesday — citing ill health.

One video of the performance at Edmonton’s Jubilee Auditorium showed the singer bending over, dropping his microphone and falling to the floor. Musicians walked over to help and the music eventually went silent.
