This brings a whole new meaning to the show must go on.

Meat Loaf was in the midst of a soulful rendition of "I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)" at his concert in Pittsburgh Thursday night when he suddenly collapsed...right in the middle of his performance.

So what happened?

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, an asthma attack got the better of the performer.

Medics quickly hopped on stage and helped him regain consciousness, and the 63-year-old rocker was back on his feet and going on with the show just 10 minutes later.

He even brushed the incident off with a lighthearted take: "Like twice as many of you, I f--ling fainted," Meat Loaf said to the crowd once he was back on his feet. "I have asthma, I can't breathe, and then, oh wait, I forgot, I got poked by a pin and bled half to death, and then I got slapped in the face and my tooth is loose."

Talk about a trouper.
