Why See Bat Out of Hell?
...Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
It is a truth universally acknowledged that most iconic concept albums worth their salt will eventually be adapted into a rock and roll musical experience to be enjoyed by euphoric audiences. Surprising then, that it took so long for Jim Steinman and Meatloaf's influential rock opera to make it to the stage, but fear not, for it will be exploding onto the West End in Summer 2017. With 20 classic bops, including 'Paradise by the Dashboard Light', 'Heaven Can Wait' and more, you won't have to wait too long dust off your leather jackets and rockabilly denim and prepare to rock, hard!
He'd do anything for love...
Following the fortunes of Strat, a young man stuck in a post-apocalyptic city and his passionate romance with the beautiful daughter of Falco, the mad dictator in charge. Weaving together songs from both Bat Out of Hell I,II and III, this is a must see for fans of Steinman's highly charged songwriting that overflows with drama and theatrics.
