63-year old, Meat Loaf fainted at a show in Pittsburgh three days ago and needed oxygen, now he has passed out at another show, this time in NY where he was playing at the New Jersey Balloon Festival. According to TMZ, just after finishing his set he collapsed backstage and requested oxygen. Thankfully, he is ok and didn’t require oxygen for more than ten minutes nor further medical care.
Meatloaf suffers from Asthma – so this is probably the reason for the fainting, he probably just needs to slow down and take his meds, especially before his shows. He has cancelled his August 4th show in Prince George BC, which is probably a good thing since he performs the next day in Clarkston, MI, he can get some rest.
