Meat Loaf Performs At Opening Of Bat Out Of Hell Musical


Meatloaf joined the cast of the new musical Bat Out of Hell - The Musical onstage in Toronto for an impromptu four-song set.

"It is like nothing -- I am telling you -- it is like nothing you have ever, ever, ever seen before... And when you leave the theatre, your mouth will be hanging open and you will be at the box office getting another ticket because you can not see this musical in one night," Meatloaf told the Toronto crowd. "Listen Toronto, I have loved you for 40 years and I still love you. Each and every one of you and you will always be in my heart and I'm going to cremate all of you with me. God bless ya and KEEP ROCKIN'."

Directed by Jay Scheib, Bat Out of Hell - The Musical is based on Meat Loaf's 1977 album of the same name, and was originally conceived by its songwriter Jim Steinman for the stage in 1975. The show, starring Andrew Polec as Strat and Christina Bennington as his love interest Raven, had its world premiere at the Opera House in Manchester, England, earlier this year and opens in London's West End at the Coliseum June 5. The North American premiere will be in Toronto, starting October 14.
