Meat Loaf cancels - again.

THOUSANDS of Meat Loaf fans have been left disappointed yet again after the singer pulled out of a concert last night.

The US entertainer was due to play at the MEN Arena in Manchester but cancelled on doctor's orders due to acute laryngitis.

It comes just a few days after Meat Loaf, 60, was just over an hour into his performance at Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena when he stopped during song Paradise By The Dashboard Light telling fans he couldn't continue.

His show in Birmingham on Friday was also postponed but his advisers were hoping the Manchester date would go ahead as planned.

Meat Loaf said: "Performing for my fans is the most important thing in the world to me. Over the years, I've gone on stage with a broken foot and an arrhythmic heart.

"It was devastating having to come off stage in Newcastle but over time, I've reluctantly learned that I have to abide by what the doctors tell me to do."

Tickets for Meat Loaf's show last night will now be valid for the rescheduled gig on Tuesday, November 27.
