Meat Loaf postponed a show last night in Nottingham, England, citing “medical reasons afflicting several members of the band” on his Facebook page. The show was the fifth of eight U.K. concerts the rocker has cancelled or postponed. A spokesman for Meat Loaf declined to provide specifics. The Nottingham show has been rescheduled for May 20th, and refunds are available at the point of sale today.

The 65-year-old singer is currently touring Europe on his “Last at Bat” farewell tour and he’s still set for a Wednesday show in Manchester, Reuters reports. Meat Loaf has dealt with serious health issues before, canceling his 2007 European tour after developing a cyst on his vocal chords. He also collapsed onstage in 2011, and had a knee replacement operation last year. He also collapsed onstage in 2003, leading to heart surgery.
