Meat Loaf’s rep released a statement Friday following the rocker’s collapse during an Edmonton, Canada concert on Thursday night.

According to the statement, the 68-year-old singer collapsed “due to severe dehydration” and was admitted to a nearby hospital to “undergo routine tests.”

Meatloaf is “responsive and recovering well,” the statement continued. Concert postponements and rescheduled dates will be announced “at a later time.”

News of Meat Loaf’s collapse spread after a fan posted a video from the concert with the caption “OMG he’s unconscious!” The footage shows Meat Loaf falling to the ground while singing “I’d Do Anything For Love.”
