Meat Loaf cancels entire tour

The pomp-rocker is diagnosed with a cyst on the vocal cords

Meat Loaf cancels entire tour
Meat Loaf has been forced to cancel the rest of his current tour, following the diagnosis of an ‘inter-vocal cord cyst’.

The star, who recently pulled out of two gigs after halting a show in Newcastle, was set to perform at Wembley Arena tonight (November 6).

In a statement on his website, Meat Loaf said: “It really breaks my heart not to be able to perform these shows. I was really looking forward to capping off a great year and celebrating the start of the holidays with the fans.

“Let me dispel any rumours before they start – I will be back.”

Inter-vocal cord cysts usually require surgery, although a period of vocal therapy lasting four to six weeks must first be carried out to determine the severity of the condition and the appropriate course of action.

The cancelled gigs are as follows:

London Wembley Arena (November 6)
Nottingham Nottingham Arena (8)
Cardiff Cardiff Arena (11)
Horsens Forum (13)
Bergen Grieghallen (15)
Stockholm Hovet (17)
Rotterdam Ahoy (20)
Belfast Odyssey (22)
Killarney INEC (24)
Manchester MEN Arena (27)
Birmingham NEC (29)
