Meat Loaf says his current farewell tour will definitely be his last time on the road.

The Dead Ringer For Love singer is starting his Last At Bat tour in the UK this week which will move on through Europe.

But Meat Loaf, 65, told Reuters TV that years on the road have taken it out of him and he won't be touring again.

He said: "This is really it... I just don't want to travel any more.

"I outweigh [Mick] Jagger by about 100 pounds and that counts for something. He hasn't seen the wear and tear."

Meat Loaf, whose Bat Out Of Hell album is still one of the biggest selling, had to cancel a tour in 2007 because of a cyst on his vocal cords.

Fans had further cause to worry in 2011 when he collapsed on stage, which he later blamed on past concussion injuries and his asthma.

The singer, who has also appeared in films including The Rocky Horror Picture Show, is working on his 13th album, Brave And Crazy, and has not ruled out future live shows that don't involve touring.
