Singer Meat Loaf cancels European tour
Meat Loaf has cancelled his European tour after ill health forced the Bat Out Of Hell Singer to pull out of two UK dates.
The 60-year-old was diagnosed with a cyst on his vocal chords, but not before cancelling gigs in Manchester and Birmingham.
Promoters have played down initial reports that he was suffering from exhaustion.
In a statement, Meat Loaf said: ‘I was really looking forward to capping off a great year and celebrating the start of the holidays with the fans.
‘But I have to do what the doctors tell me so I can look forward to healing and coming back strong in 2008.
‘Let me dispel any rumours before they start – I will be back.’
