EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -

No one knows why Meat Loaf collapsed during a concert in Canada Thursday night. Fans there say he was singing "I'd Do Anything For You" when it looked like he suffered some type of health issue and laid down during the show. Meat Loaf was performing at Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton when it happened.

A spokesperson for Alberta Health Services confirmed that a patient was transported from the concert venue to an Edmonton hospital, but would not identify the patient or the patient's condition.

NBC News was not immediately able to reach representatives of Meat Loaf, who was born Marvin Lee Aday.

The incident came after Meat Loaf canceled a concert in Calgary on Monday due to illness. He is on a Canadian tour that wraps up in July, according to his website.
