Meat Loaf pulled out of a concert in Nottingham an hour before it was due to begin.

The show was postponed due to "medical reasons affecting several members of the band" according to a statement Capital FM Arena's website.

The gig will now take place on Monday 20 May with all tickets for last night to remain valid.

The full statement from Meat Loaf read: "We are very sorry to announce that tonight's performance has had to be postponed due to medical reasons afflicting several members of the band.

In 2011 the 65-year-old was taken ill and passed out during two concerts, due to his asthma.
