Meat Loaf

FAINTS AGAIN

TWICE IN A WEEK

8/2/2011 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0801-meatloaf-passout-EX
Three days after passing out at a concert in Pittsburgh, Meat Loaf fainted AGAIN at a show in New Jersey -- and this time ... the 63-year-old singer had to be hooked up to an oxygen machine.

Meat was playing the New Jersey Balloon Festival on Sunday -- and after finishing his set, we're told he collapsed backstage and requested oxygen.

As we previously reported, Meat Loaf suffers from asthma.

Thankfully, the singer pulled himself together after ten minutes on the breathing apparatus -- and didn't require further medical attention.

Several calls to Meat Loaf's reps haven't been returned -- but it's pretty clear ... the guy needs a break.

He either needs to see a doctor or he just doesn't want people to know what's really wrong with him.

If you passed out having an asthma attack, you would need medical intervention, because you're about to die. Oxygen will not stop an asthma attack.

And no person who was having an asthma attack would be laying down. Laying down makes it a hundred times harder to breathe when you already can't breath.

Maybe wearing long sleeves and an all black outfit in the middle of a heatwave isn't such a great idea either.

Somehow I dont believe you drop like a dead bird every few seconds from asthma..ever thought maybe his bad eating habits are causing him to have heart issues? He needs to see a doctor and stop offering bull**** excuse

I highly doubt it has anything to do with him needing a break. It's more than likely weather related. It's been hot & humid in that part of the country, that alone is enough to trigger an asthma attack. Plus, look at what he's wearing. It could have easily caused his body to overheat, triggering the asthma attack. My mother has asthma and has to be careful about being outside or doing too much in the summer heat, it will cause her to have an attack and pass out.

He'd better get the break that's needed because he's due to be performing at the AFL Grand Final in September at the MCG in Aus. Get well soon Meatloaf

Meatloaf's song should've been titled "I Would Do Anything For Krispy Kremes."
Hmmm... guess it would be hard to make it rhyme.

Meatloaf also has a rare heart condition called Wolfe Parkinson White which he treated several years ago. It can re-occur though and I can honestly hope it IS asthma that caused his fainting rather than possible tachycardia. Hope he gets well soon!
