EDMONTON, Canada — The rock singer Meat Loaf, who was hospitalized after collapsing at a show Thursday night in Canada, should be home soon, his spokesman Jeremy Westby said Friday.

“He was admitted to a nearby hospital to undergo routine tests,” Westby said. “His vital signs are stable and normal — he’s responsive and recovering well.”

Meat Loaf collapsed due to severe dehydration near the end of his concert at the Northern Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton, Westby said.

Video posted on social media shows the singer collapsing while singing “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That).”

Meatloaf canceled a show in Calgary earlier this week due to “illness,” according to his representatives.
