Meat Loaf has confirmed that his upcoming tour of the UK, will be feature his last live performances ever.
At these concerts, Meat Loaf is going to perform his classic 1977 album, Bat Out Of Hell, in its entirety, and the shows have been billed as ‘a final goodbye to his fans.’ Bat Out Of Hell sold a total of 43 million copies worldwide and is one of the best-selling albums in the history of recorded music. It included the hits “Bat Out of Hell,” “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad” and “Paradise by the Dashboard Light.”
The rocker will perform in Newcastle, Nottingham, London and Cardiff, plus he will also sing a set of his greatest ever hits, from across his career during the show, which will be split into two parts.
Discussing the Last At Bat tour, Meat Loaf remarked, “When Jim (Steinman) 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. I know the fans will enjoy the show as much as I enjoyed putting it together.”
Tickets for these dates go on sale this Friday. The news is quite shocking considering that Meat Loaf previously told CNN, “I go out on the stage as if it’s the last thing I’ll ever do. And that’s what I’ve always said – If I’m going out, I’m going out on stage.”
