THE award-winning Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical is coming to Oxford this autumn– and you better get your tickets quick before they’re gone, gone, gone.
The show, featuring Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf’s greatest hits, will be at the New Theatre Oxford from Tuesday 5 – Saturday 16 October 2021, as part of a UK tour.
“Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical will give you the most fun night you can have in the UK this year (with your clothes on)!”
Producer Michael Cohl said: “We’ve all been through a lot these past 15 months and we need a really good night out with friends and family. Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical will give you the most fun night you can have in the UK 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.”
Jim Steinman, Hall of Fame songwriter and Grammy-winning record producer for Meat Loaf, Bonnie Tyler, Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand and more, died last year aged 73.
In Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical, the electrifying rock songs of Mr Steinman embellish an epic story of rebellious youth and passion as Strat, the immortal leader of The Lost, falls in love with Raven, the beautiful daughter of the tyrannical ruler Falco.
Incorporating Meatloaf’s 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, it won the Radio 2 Audience Award for Best Musical at the Evening Standard Awards and was nominated for 8 WhatsOnStage Awards, including Best New Musical.
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.
