Meat Loaf postpones second UK tour date due to ill health


Meat Loaf has postponed another show on the UK leg of his Last At Bat farewell tour last night as his bandmates continue to struggle with ill health.

Last night’s Manchester Arena was cancelled “due to medical reasons affecting several members of the band” according to a Manchester Arena spokesman. It follows the postponement of a show in Nottingham on Sunday night.

A statement released on the Meat Loaf’s Facebook page said: “Unfortunately not all band members have recovered and the doctors have not given us the green light to go ahead with [Manchester’s] show as planned.”

It added that they fully expect the tour to continue on Friday in Sheffield and that a rescheduled date in Manchester will be announced in the next couple of days with original tickets still valid.

The statement continued: “Meat, the band and crew are massively disappointed to have to postpone a second show and send love and apologies. Thank you for understanding.”
