The big, bad man is heading down under in October this year to unleash his Guilty Pleasure Tour on his fervent Aussie fanatics. That's right – the Loaf is back and ready to rock with hits from classic albums like Bat Out of Hell as well as songs from more recent albums, including the upcoming Hell in a Hand Basket.
Hits from Bat Out of Hell are to feature in Meat Loaf's upcoming tour.
With a career spanning more than thirty years, with millions of albums sold and dozens of roles in movies such as The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Fight Club, it's no wonder Meat Loaf is an icon of pop culture, his loyal fans sticking by him despite numerous scandals and hardships.
The Guilty Pleasure Tour kicks off at the WIN Entertainment Centre in Wollongong on 4 October, then heads to Brisbane Entertainment Centre on 6 October and Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena on 14 October, before winding up at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on 19 October.
Tickets are available from Ticketek. Prices vary by city, but start at less than $100 for Silver Reserve. Meet and Greet Packages are available for just under $400 each which grant ticket holders a seat within the first five rows of the stage, an exclusive meeting with the Loaf himself, personal and autographed photos, a collectable tour poster and a t-shirt.
Meat Loaf was one of my favourite things to listen to when my parents played it when I was young. His role in The Rocky Horror Picture show is something I also remember quite fondly. I hope he is a lot better then he was at the AFL Grand Final show because something terribly wrong happened then. Thank you for the review, still not sure if I will go or not though.
Ha! Are you my secret brother? I think we had the same childhood. My mother used to clean the house with Meat Loaf blaring and we'd all dance around the loungeroom together with dusters and brooms... It was like the rock and roll version of the cleaning scene in Mary Poppins.
Agreed - the GF was atrocious, I couldn't look away, but it just kept getting worse. And then the 'hotdog t-shirt shooter' came out...
When all is said and done, it may be better to preserve your good memories of The Loaf, get his old classic records out and have your own little concert at home :)
We went to his condert last night at Rod Lavera arena and bought the tickets at double the RRP great seats....shame about the concert it definitely didn't live up to our expectations of Meat Loaf from his 2004 concert where he was awesome :(

Went to the Adelaide concert - he was terrible! Meat Loaf should be thoroughly ashamed of himself to take people's money when he can no longer sing, shuffles around the stage and murders his classic numbers - very very disappointing
