Variety is reporting that actor and musician Meat Loaf collapsed on stage tonight during a performance at Canada’s Northern Jubilee Auditorium. Videos of the incident show the performer leaning on his microphone stand for a moment, before falling to the floor, apparently unresponsive. Paramedics reportedly arrived on the scene quickly, while fans were asked to evacuate the venue.

The 68-year-old performer has been suffering from an unknown malady for at least the last week, cancelling one recent show due to illness. His condition is currently unknown, but we’ll update this story when more details are available.


UPDATE, June 17, 10:40 AM: The BBC reports that Meat Loaf is “stable and in good condition” at a hospital in Edmonton.
