This series of incredibly special dates will see the singer perform a two-act show. The first act will include some of Meat Loaf's greatest hits such as 'Dead Ringer For Love' and 'I'd Lie For You (And That's the Truth)'. The second act will be the classic debut album 'Bat Out Of Hell' – with all seven songs performed in their original order.
Since it's release in 1977, the seminal album is still third in the biggest selling charts, having sold more than 45 million copies and continues to sell around 200,000 copies each year. In fact, the album has never left the charts in the UK!
In Meat's own words, he is excited to get back to Europe and see everyone for one Last Bat.
"When Jim and I first came together, we couldn't have dreamt the profound effect 'Bat Out Of Hell' would have on both our lives, and the lives of our fans around the world."
With his unique voice and flamboyant stage presence, this show promises to be an exciting event.
"I know the fans will enjoy the show as much as I enjoyed putting it together."
Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 21st December priced at £57.50/£48.50 London and £55.00/£45.00 Regional (subject to booking fee) and are available from usual outlets.
