The Meat Loaf concert slated for Tuesday night at MTS Centre has been cancelled.

In a statement Monday, the promoter said the singer was unable to perform due to recovering from the flu.

The show was scheduled as part of the “Hang Cool Tour,” which includes stops in Edmonton, Calgary, and other North American cities until early September.

Meat Loaf cancelled another set of shows on July 20 in Windsor, Ontario and July 22 in Detroit after receiving advice from his doctor not to perform.

Tickets will be refunded at their point of purchase.
