Meat Loaf Faints on Stage in Pittsburgh

Meat Loaf
Adam Bettcher

Meat Loaf fainted while performing a concert in Pittsburgh, Pa. last night (July 28), and remained down on the stage for ten minutes as a clearly concerned audience waited in nervous silence. Luckily the singer, who has a flair for the dramatic both in his music and within his personal life, recovered and was able to finish the show.

The scary scene occurred just as Meat was finishing his epic ’90s classic “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That.’) The singer, who suffers from asthma (and based on his appearances on ‘Celebrity Apprentice,‘ we’d venture to say some kind of tension issues as well), collapsed and was immediately tended to by his road crew.

“He hasn’t been feeling well the past few days,” his publicist, Maureen O’Connor, explained to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “His asthma has been bothering him. He fainted onstage and got up and did the rest of the show. We’re happy he’s OK.”

After attending U2′s concert earlier this week in Pittsburgh, which like much of the country has been suffering under hot and humid conditions, we find it pretty easy to understand what Loaf (we can’t decide which name is most respectful to use on its own) was going through.

No changes to Meat Loaf’s summer tour plans have been announced as a result of this thankfully minor incident.
