MEAT LOAF’S BAT OUT OF HELL TOUR COMING TO DVD
November 5, 2009
Released in October 1977, Meat Loaf’s Bat Out Of Hell went on to become one of the most iconic albums of the seventies, blending Rock ‘N’ Roll and theatrical flourish. Touring in support of this album, Meat Loaf appeared on Rockpalast in June of 1978. On November 10, Eagle Rock Entertainment, through its Eagle Vision subsidiary, will release this concert on DVD, when Bat Out Of Hell: The Original Tour hits stores.
Filmed at the Stadthalle Offenbach, Bat Out of Hell: The Original Tour captures the raw excitement of Meat Loaf’s epic stage show. Larger-than-life songs like “You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night)” and “Paradise By The Dashboard Light” sounded absolutely extravagant performed live. Not only does Meat Loaf dominate the stage, but also he captivates audiences with the riveting nature of his songs, with the help of the album’s songwriter Jim Steinman and female vocalist Karla DeVito. It’s visual proof of the power of Bat Out Of Hell, which certified 10x Platinum and sold over 40 Million copies. Also included is a bonus interview from 1978 with Meat Loaf and Jim Steinman.
In addition to Bat Out Of Hell: The Original Tour, Eagle Rock will release two other Rockpalast DVDs in November, as performances from Thin Lizzy and UB40 will also hit the shelves.
