Reports: Meat Loaf collapses onstage in Canada –
Rock star Meat Loaf, who has sold more than 80 million records worldwide, collapsed while performing in Canada, according to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
Fans were told to leave Northern Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton, Alberta, as emergency workers arrived, FOX News says.
Lindsay Sundmark told the Edmonton Journal: "He was performing 'I Would Do Anything For Love,' and all of a sudden in the middle of it he collapsed right on stage. We weren't sure at first whether it was part of the act or it was something for real."

Born in Dallas as Marvin Lee Aday, the highly acclaimed musician, 68, recently canceled two shows earlier in the week due to illness. 
His condition is unknown at this time.
Meat Loaf is well known for his anthology of "Bat Out of Hell" albums, and for songs such as "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" and "You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth." 
The rocker has a history of scary crises. He once told in an interview:
"I got hit in the head with a 12 pound shot (when I was) a sophomore in high school at 62 feet. Yeah, I've had 18 concussions, I've been in eight car wrecks, I've been in a plane that didn't have front landing gear when we came down. I've been in a plane that lost its hydraulics on landing — that was the most fun ever. We were tipping from one side to another, rolling across the grass. (I've been on) two other planes, one private and one normal that the wind hit us so hard (while landing) the wing hit the runway."
He collapsed during a 2011 concert in Pittsburgh, but finished the performance after receiving onstage medical assistance.
