Singer Meat Loaf is recovering from heart surgery, according to a statement from him on his fan club's website.
The star has postponed a string of UK concerts
The star, who collapsed on stage during a show a week ago, told his fans he was found to have a minor heart condition but is now making "excellent" progress.
He had surgery to treat Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, which means there is an extra pathway carrying electrical signals through the heart.
He is out of hospital and hopes to resume his tour on Sunday, he said.
In the statement on the website, he said: "The prognosis is excellent as the procedure's success rate is over 95%.
"I was in surgery for around two hours, out of the hospital and back at the hotel."
Best-known for 1970s hit Bat Out of Hell, the 52-year-old was discharged from London's Wellington Hospital on Saturday.
He said he was waiting to get permission from his cardiologist to continue his tour at Manchester's Evening News Arena on Sunday.
He was forced to postpone shows in Newcastle, Brighton, Glasgow and Sheffield.
Meat Loaf - real name Marvin Lee Aday - was also due to play several UK dates in December, culminating in another show at Wembley Arena on 18 December.
Earlier this year the singer said he wanted to move to Hartlepool in Teeside, and was looking at spending up to £1m on a property.
As well as his singing career - he released Couldn't Have Said it Better earlier this year - Meat Loaf has also enjoyed a successful acting career, appearing in films such as Wayne's World and Fight Club.
