Meat Loaf has revealed that he will be taking up a new fitness plan after he collapsed onstage during a gig in Edmonton last month.
During a performance of his hit song ‘I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)’ Meatloaf stopped singing and collapsed onstage. He was rushed to hospital after the incident and was later said to be in a stable condition. It was revealed shortly after that his collapse was due to “severe hydration.”
In a recent interview with Classic Rock magazine, Meat Loaf has spoken about the incident. He said “I got sick and I got dehydrated and then I had to drink what they call pedialytes – gallons of them.”
He continued by saying “I knew I was about to go and I didn’t want to just fall and hit. I was getting really dizzy and I’m going, ‘Oh my god, I think I’m gonna faint.’ So I didn’t want to stand there until I just fainted and cracked my skull open. So I just said, ‘Okay, I’m going to kinda go down.’ But about halfway down I went completely out, and I didn’t wake up until I got to the hospital.”
Meat Loaf then revealed that he will be taking up a new fitness regime “I’m going to acupuncture, physical therapy, and a trainer, starting Monday for four days a week, an hour and a half each session. … We’re trying to watch out for my health and make it easier onstage.”
