Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical wowed critics and public alike when it played limited seasons at Manchester Opera House, London Coliseum and London’s Dominion Theatre from 2017 to 2019.
The musical also ran successfully in Canada, Germany and at New York’s City Centre in 2019, and also won the Radio 2 Audience Award for Best Musical at the Evening Standard Awards and was nominated for eight WhatsOnStage Awards, including Best New Musical.
Soon, it will be on its way once again to Manchester.
What can audiences expect?
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 and award-winning Jim Steinman incorporated iconic 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.
In Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical, the electrifying rock songs of Mr Steinman propel 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.

“We’ve all been through a lot these past 15 months and we now need a really good night out with friends and family,” said producer Michael Cohl.
“Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical will give you the most fun night you can have in the UK and Ireland 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.”
