Hull New Theatre is among those revved-up and ready for some Paradise By The Dashboard Light when the award-winning Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical, roars onto the stage for another super-charged tour of the UK
The show thunders into action in September 2021 and looks set to rock around the UK for about a year in a stunning show which features the iconic greatest hits of Meat Loaf and the late Jim Steinman.
Bat Out Of Hell became one of the best-selling albums in history, selling over 50 million copies worldwide. 16 years later, Steinman scored again with Bat Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell, which contained the massive hit I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That).
For the stage musical, the legendary Jim Steinman incorporated songs from the Bat Out Of Hell albums, including You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth, Bat Out Of Hell, I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That) and Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad, as well as two previously unreleased songs, What Part of My Body Hurts the Most and Not Allowed to Love.
Producers of the show said this latest tour would be a fitting tribute to Jim Steinman, who died earlier this year.
Producer Michael Cohl said: “We’ve all been through a lot these past 15 months and we now need a really good night out with friends and family. Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical will give you the most fun night you can have this year, with your clothes on.
“People will once again be able to dance and sing along to these great Steinman songs. This musical was Jim Steinman’s life-long dream and he was incredibly proud of the love the show received from critics and audiences alike. This tour will be in memory of Jim.”
With amazing stage design and electrifying rock songs the production follows an epic story of rebellious youth and passion as Strat, the immortal leader of The Lost, has fallen in love with Raven, the beautiful daughter of the tyrannical ruler Falco.
