Rocker Meat Loaf collapsed on stage Thursday night during a concert in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, while performing his 1993 hit single “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That).”

The 68-year-old singer, born Marvin Lee Aday, was rushed to an area hospital.

A spokesperson for Alberta Health Services told NBC News that a patient had been transported from the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium but would not confirm the patient’s identity or his condition.

Meat Loaf had cancelled another concert at the same venue on Monday “due to illness,” according to the star’s Facebook page.

He is scheduled to perform seven more shows in Canada through July 2, according to his official website.

That includes at least one, on July 2 at the Mosaic Place in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, that had been postponed from June 11, according to his Twitter account.
