Meat Loaf

In 1977, Meat Loaf made history with the release of his first record Bat Out of Hell, which to this day has sold over 34 million copies worldwide. Sixteen years later, the critically acclaimed follow up album, Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell, skyrocketed to number one on the music charts in 20 different countries. And most recently last fall, Meat Loaf released his third album entitled Bat out of Hell III: The Monster is Loose. The new album preserves the theatricality of the first two Bat albums while also introducing a fresh experience that is revitalizing to the Meat Loaf legacy.

“Overall, I wanted this to be edgier and rockier than the other two Bats,” Meat Loaf says of the majestic disc. “Bats are typically piano-based, and we will have plenty of piano, but I have a lot of guitar-based stuff as well. I’ve always been mentally more hard rock than I’ve shown on records before, and I think the concerts tend to be where that’s come across. So I’ve pushed that this time. I was like, ‘Hey, let’s rock this sucker.’ So, we did and it scared the hell out of me.”

To promote his newest album, Meat Loaf kicked off a worldwide tour this past fall, beginning in San Diego, California. The concert tour continued in Washington DC, Orland, and numerous cities in Canada. Following his brief stay in North America, Meat Loaf traveled to Europe to perform shows in the United Kingdom, Germany, and Ireland. Each of these performances has been met with positive reviews and are described as “ a once in a lifetime experience”.

This July, Meat Loaf will be returning to New York to perform in Madison Square Garden.
