Meat Loaf will perform his classic album Bat Out Of Hell in full during a UK tour next year – and he says it’s his “final goodbye.” While the veteran singer has discussed retirement on several occasions over the past five years, it seems the eight concerts in April are to be his last appearances on stage in the UK at least. The first half of each show will consist of a career-spanning track selection, then the second half will see the vocalist delivering the iconic 1977 album in its entirety. Meat Loaf says: “When Jim Steinman and I first came together, we couldn’t have dreamt the profound effect Bat Out of Hell would have on our lives, and the lives of our fans around the world. “This show promises to be an exciting event. I know the fans will enjoy the show as much as I enjoyed putting it together.” The vocalist passed out on stage twice during a tour in 2011 and earlier this year underwent knee surgery.
