Meat Loaf lets the “bat out of hell” with upcoming 'Seize the Night Tour'

The long-awaited third record in the Bat Out of Hell trilogy, The Monster Is Loose, wears bombast, pretension, and pyrotechnics proudly on its album sleeve and across the bulging disc\'s 14 tracks.

Following the release of his third “Bat Out of Hell” album, singer Meat Loaf is back with “Bat Out of Hell III – Seize The Night Tour” – which will see the singer taking the epic trilogy on tour beginning Friday, February 23 in Pala, California.

Thirteen years in the making, ‘Bat Out of Hell III: The Monster is Loose’ was unleashed to a hungry public on October 31st with a debut at #8 on the Billboard charts and a top 5 debut in more than 10 countries.

The three act performance includes smash hits from each of the “Bat Out Of Hell” installments, including “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad,” “You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth,” and the show-stopping “Paradise by the Dashboard Lights.”  Act II features more favorites you know by heart including the classic international chart-topper “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That),” which earned Meat Loaf a Grammy for Best Rock Vocal Solo Performance.  Finally, Act III brings the franchise full circle with the powerful, “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now, ” “Blind as a Bat” and a finale spanning the entire “Bat” series.

'Bat Out of Hell III - The Monster is Loose' is now available at Amazon. Visit the music database for more information, a complete track listing and a link to M&C's review of the album. Meat Loaf Tickets are now available at M&C’s Ticket Database. “Bat Out Of Hell III” Tour Dates include:
