Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical wowed critics and public alike when it played at Manchester Opera House, London Coliseum and London’s Dominion Theatre from 2017-2019.
And next year, the award-winning musical, which features Jim Steinman and Meatloaf’s greatest hits, will return to tour the UK, with performances beginning at Manchester Opera House.
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 award-winning Jim Steinman has 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.
In Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical, the electrifying rock songs propel a 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.
The musical 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.
It toured in Canada, Germany and at New York’s City Centre last summer, and will tour Australia before coming to the UK next autumn.
The 2020 tour will start in Manchester before it heads to other cities across the UK.
Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical will come to Manchester Opera House from 10th – 26th September 2020. Tickets will go on sale on 9th December.
