Legendary rocker Meat Loaf has revealed a surprising news to the press stating that he may not be playing in any music festivals in U.K anymore. According to the singer, the festivals in England are stupid because the behavior of the crowd that watch the event are awful.

Speaking to the press, the singer revealed that his decision to skip performing at festivals in U.K. was triggered by the fans' behavior at the rocker's recent gig with Jefferson Starship in the Queen Elizabeth's country. "We played with Jefferson (Starship) at one of those stupid English festivals, and I do call them stupid because people behave like apes who haven't eaten a banana in a week. I refuse to play them," he said.

However, he also stated that he would still play in U.K. but only if the venue is as good as his concert at Castle Howard. Stating his statement, Meat Loaf said, "I prefer venues like Castle Howard. It feels more like everybody is going to take a bottle of wine and a roasted chicken and pull it off like Henry VIII: 'Give me that leg woman...' It is a more carnival-like atmosphere, and I do like carnivals."

Meat Loaf himself is currently busy staging his European tour named Casa de Carne, which kicks off on June 27 in Plymouth England and scheduled to end on August 16 in Sjaeland, Denmark. On that tour the rocker will also be accompanied by his long time duet partner Patti Russo.
