One year after it was announced that Meat Loaf’s “Bat Out of Hell” topped the chart of biggest-selling debut albums in UK history, members of his official band have announced their triumphant return to the UK for a tour celebrating his incredible music.
“CELEBRATING MEAT LOAF” featuring The Neverland Express plus American Idol winner, Caleb Johnson, will tour the UK in 2024 after the overwhelming response to their first ever UK tour last May.
The “NEVER STOP ROCKIN’” 2024 tour starts on Saturday 13th September at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall and culminates in Cambridge at the Corn Exchange on Sunday 22nd September.
This stunning concert is the only authentic reimagining of the legendary Meat Loaf and Jim Steinman songbook performed brilliantly by world-class alumni of Meat Loaf’s official band- the same musicians who brought his musical visions to life both in the studio and on stages around the world.
Caleb Johnson returns with the band, having established his legitimacy as the premier lead vocalist for this timeless music through his powerful interpretations and furiously electrifying stage presence.
Led by Meat Loaf’s longtime record producer/ music director/ guitarist Paul Crook alongside fellow alumni John Miceli (drums), Randy Flowers (guitar), Kiley Baxter (feature/ backing vocals), Danny Miranda (bass) and including Andy Ascolese (piano) and Kiley Baxter (backing vocals), the band and Caleb perform a thoughtfully curated set list of Meat Loaf’s best loved classics such as “Bat Out of Hell”, “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” and “I Would Do Anything For Love”.
As an added second set bonus, the show includes hit songs from “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” which celebrates its 50th anniversary. Meat Loaf starred as luckless delivery driver, Eddie, in the hit film and sang the showstopper, “Hot Patootie, Bless My Soul”.
Created & produced by Paul Crook, this is the only band that was officially endorsed by Meat Loaf.
“Do not miss this! This is the closest you could possibly get…This is NOT a tribute band but Meat’s incredible, actual band. Singer, Caleb, has all the power and glory of Meat in his glory days and this band ROCKS!!!” – Brian May of Queen
