Featuring The Neverland Express and American Idol winner, Caleb Johnson, Bat – The Official Meat Loaf Celebration have announced dates for 2023. Starting at Oxford’s New Theatre on 20 May, the tour finishes on 27 May in London at The O2.
Celebrating the forever legendary Meat Loaf, the show is set to include his major hit songs. The iconic “BAT OUT OF HELL” album will be performed in its entirety, as well as hits from “Bat Out of Hell II”, “Bat Out of Hell III”, “Dead Ringer” and even “Rocky Horror Picture Show”. These will be played brilliantly by world-class alumni of his official band.
Created & produced by Paul Crook, Meat Loaf’s longtime record producer/music director/guitarist, this is the only band that was officially endorsed by Meat Loaf.
“To be perfectly honest, it’s going to be emotional as it’s our first time overseas without Meat Loaf. I know I can speak for the band in saying we have always considered our UK fanbase as family, a second home. They are loud, fun, passionate and, together with them, we are going to make this tour the ultimate celebration of our beloved Boss. Meat Loaf loved touring the UK and to say that he appreciated his fans would be an understatement. Very much like Meat Loaf, Caleb is a charming, true southern gentleman with a huge voice. This will be his very first time in the UK. We believe that our fanbase is going to welcome him into the “family” the second he steps on stage”.Paul Crook
“I’m super excited and honored to be celebrating this legendary and iconic music. My life forever changed after hearing the blockbuster album “Bat Out of Hell” for the first time when I was 15 years old. Meat Loaf is a massive hero of mine and I’m looking forward to rocking with the UK family!”Caleb Johnson
