Meat Loaf cancels European tour

LONDON, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- U.S. rock star Meat Loaf has canceled his European tour due to illness, but assures fans he has no immediate plans to retire, the BBC reported.

Meat Loaf, 60, was diagnosed with an inter-vocal cord cyst, it was announced Tuesday.

"I was really looking forward to capping off a great year and celebrating the start of the holidays with the fans. But I have to do what the doctors tell me so I can look forward to healing and coming back strong in 2008," he said. "Let me dispel any rumors before they start -- I will be back."

Meat Loaf sparked rumors that he planned to retire when he walked out of a Newscastle concert last week, declaring the performance "the last show I may ever do in my life."

"I can no longer continue. I take my coat off and thank you for 30 years," he reportedly said.

Representatives for the performer dismissed his comments, stating he had been suffering "exhaustion and stress."

Meat Loaf had been slated to perform in London, Nottingham, Cardiff, Horsens, Bergen, Stockholm, Rotterdam, Belfast, Killarney, Manchester and Birmingham this month.
