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.

That's a mean case of asthma! I think there are other issues the doctors might want to check out. The heart is the first thing that comes to mind and next would be the weight.

Meatloaf needs to lay off the Meatloaf. His arteries are probably clogged up.

He's got to stop with the outdoor summer festivals where temps are hitting over 100°F. His body obviously can't handle it anymore.

do you think wearing all black in 100 degree heat has anything to do with this?

O.K., you can fault him for not taking a break, but you got to give him credit for his "the show must go on" attitude. It´s not like he cancelled concerts because his dressing room didn´t have the right kind of toilet seat.

Meats been fainting after a show since the 70's. He's been told by doctors to shorten his mammoth shows to 2 hours. I think most people would faint if they did what he did. Lets face facts 1. He's over 60 2. He sings with every inch of his Lungs 3. He's under the spotlight which create an amazing amount of heat. and finally 4. He gets to kiss Aspen Miller or Patti Russo, two women that would raise the temperature in any room. Oh and he has astma, and thats jenga...

Aside from his asthma, the guy is wearing all black in the middle of summer. I'm not surprised he'd pass out

An Oxygen "MACHINE" - HAHAAHAH Harvery and TMZ lol.....You mean a "Bottle" of Oxygen?
"MACHINE" It was not a respirator! How long do you think the media would last if they did not sensationalize EVERYTHING. This is how the story really should read "Meatloaf has asthma and fainted again, and as part of his treatment, was given some Oxygen.

I'm in the Philly area and I have to say, it has been horrible air quality this summer. I don't usually have allergy/asthma problems in the spring and summer but they have been nearly unbearable this year.
