There has been no formal announcement from the singer’s management but many of the venues on the tour have been informed of the cancellation including the Illinois State Fair in Springfield, IL (August 19) and River Edge Park in Aurora, IL (August 23). All tour dates have been removed from Meat Loaf’s webpage.
The singer has had medical problems in the past, including being diagnosed with Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome, a disorder of the electrical system of the heart that is only found in between 0.1% and 0.3% of the population. It is unknown if this affliction has anything to do with the cancellation.
Meat Loaf and Jim Steinman plan to release a new album, Braver Than We Are, in the fall.
