The London Coliseum is the venue for a show that's set to rock your world. If you love Meat Loaf's unique musical style in all its humorous, loud and proud glory, you'll never forget this particularly big night out. Bat Out of Hell features more than twenty massive songs from the Loaf, set to a plot that'll have your heart racing ten to the dozen. Huge fun, eagerly anticipated, don't miss it!

Bat Out Of Hell is inspired by the albums of the same name, with tunes by the brilliant songwriter Jim Steinman and Jay Scheib at the helm. It's no surprise it has made it to the stage, joining a host of music industry stars whose songs have been immortalised in top class musicals.

In a way it's surprising it took so long for Steinman and Meatloafs' extraordinary rock opera to make it to the stage. It's been on Steinman's mind for some time, by all accounts, so it's fantastic to finally see it on the way to the West End.

Bat Out of Hell – The story

Expect twenty or more classics from the Loaf, woven into a story you'll revel in. Are you ready to rock? The story goes like this: young Strat is stuck in a post-apocalyptic world and he'd do anything for love. Being madly passionate about the mad dictator Falco's daughter is a risky business – will romance win the day?

The musical knits together classic tunes from all three Bat Out of Hell albums, a plot that does full justice to the music's power, drama and massive electric charge.

Expect plenty of singing and dancing to spice up the action, and plenty of humour too – a staple of the personality behind the music. By all account Meat Loaf is a very funny man, and while the fine details of this hit-in-the-making of a musical are yet to be revealed, the signs are looking good. Very good.

Best of all, the word on the streets is there'll be a few brand new Steinman songs to add to the classics we all know and love. If your idea of a great night out includes top music plus themes of love and loss, you've got it. There might even be the occasional motorbike on stage. You'll have to wait and see!

not to be missed.

all the artistes had brilliant voices,2 3/4 hours of 1st class entertainment.


London Box Office customer

Weak story, great Steinman hits

The story is pretty light, and scenes & songs mashed together with a closed fist, however good to hear those Steinman classics played by a full live orchestra. Some terrific vocals from the leads.


London Box Office customer

Excellent show really enjoyed it Great music and singing The audience were all singing and clapping along Definitely worth seeing


London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

Fantastic

London Box Office customer

Awesome! A must see

London Box Office customer

Third time lucky

This show was fantastic and I`ve seen lots of shows based on the artist life or simply 'the music'. But this `was something else', entertaining from the very start to the final curtain. I`ve seen it twice now and would happily go again, but although my wife also enjoyed the show, another day in London would cost too much.


London Box Office customer

good and loud

The show kept on the edge of our seats for the entire time.


London Box Office customer

Nostalgia

My generation loved Meat Loaf and their music. Bat out of Hell was an all time favourite. So when I was in London, I had to see this musical and I wasn't disappointed.


London Box Office customer

Fantastic cast .., what talent !!

You will leave the theatre with a sore throat from singing and with a huge smile on our face. This is one hell of a show. Fantastic !!


London Box Office customer

Awesome music performance

The real draw is the history of the music that underpins this show! Jim Steinmans vision of a rock and roll theatrical production brings great set design, lighting and talent together on stage telling a story with a musical score like no other!


London Box Office customer

Long live Meatloaf

Something for everyone. Not to be missed. So much energy! Cast was fantastic and it looked like they were having so much fun whilst entertaining us.


London Box Office customer

Fantastic

Hope this show goes to Australia so my brother can see it


London Box Office customer

Very catching

London Box Office customer

A great show to see; if you remember the music or not!

It is a bit of a cross between Peter Pan and West Side Story with a modern Operatic delivery. The scene setting/changes were great and they (the Cast) deliver a strong show! But be prepared it is LOUD!!


London Box Office customer

Masterful vocals and choreography

London Box Office customer

Incredible if you are a meatloaf fan!!

The show was fantastic! I am a huge meatloaf fan, the music was great and all the performers were incredible! Highly recommend this show!


London Box Office customer

Vivid great

London Box Office customer

Awesome Show

London Box Office customer

Exceeded my expectations

I wasn't sure what to expect and it was far better than I could have imagined. The songs were brought together so well by the story line and there were a few special effects that made it outstanding - highly recommend to any Meatloaf and theatre fans


London Box Office customer

AMAZING

London Box Office customer

Paradise by the theatre light!!

Brilliant for all ages!


London Box Office customer

AWESOME ENERGY / ACTING AND MUSIC

An AWESOME cast / impossible energy - dont know how they do it every night - Meat Loaf's music is to die for and performed so powerfully - dynamic dancing and a positively brilliant orchestra. All this totally outweighs the slightly lame 'Westside Story' storyline.


London Box Office customer

not to be missed

worth seeing,the music is great,the voices are brilliant,pure entertainment


London Box Office customer

Great story & music

London Box Office customer

Good cast performing very well. I found the storyline a bit confusing but the music and dancing more than made up for my confusion. One of the few shows I would happily go to again.


London Box Office customer

brilliant

As a big meat loaf fan the show exceeded my expectations. Very well done the cast were very good and portrayed bat out of hell to a t.


London Box Office customer

Changed my opinion of musicals!

I am not really one for musicals, or even the theatre. But I have not stopped singing this shows praises since I left the theatre. Maybe my love of Meatloaf had a little to do with it, but the stage set was amazing, such a unique way of presenting everything and had my eyes guessing at times as to what exactly I was seeing! There was so much energy in the show and even a few humorous moments which were not expected. I want to see it again already!


London Box Office customer

Revitalised classic rock

London Box Office customer

Only for Bat Out Of Hell album fans

If you love the Bat Out Of Hell album and know all the music then this show will be ok for you. The music is played well and the songs are sung really well. The stage set up is good and the use of cameras is an interesting angle, plus very helpful for the seats in the balcony! What disappoints though is that it does not just gel altogether. The story line is probably the weak link. Everything else works and it is worth going if you know the album and songs well.


London Box Office customer

Don't miss it !

London Box Office customer

Just Epic, Spectacular, loved it!

WOW! This was truly electrifying, some adult scenes, a little swearing so possibly not for under 14/15 years. Certainly would want to go & see it again!

Brill

London Box Office customer

Bought tickets for my partner so as a non Meatloaf fan I have to say this show was so much better than I expected. The first half was definitely better than the second half which seemed to lose the story a bit. Couple of random songs but music was great. A fab night and would recommend.


London Box Office customer

One of the best shows ever!!!

My friend and I had an amazing trip to see this! Not one bad singing voice, and the staging was incredible!!! Must go again before it finishes!!!

This show is a MUST for Meatloaf fans. Fabulous set, amazing acting and of course all the Meatloaf hits, make for a great sing-a-long show. Highly recommended.


London Box Office customer

weak start - great 75 %

That first 30% of the show was weak in all areas but from the 2nd pat of act 1 got better. The rest of the show was fabulous.


London Box Office customer

For fans of meatloaf this is a must see

Pay the extra to get a good seat. I was in the balcony and had difficulty seeing all aspects of the performance


London Box Office customer

terrific, heart teaching (some songs). very entertaining

All the actors /singers are wonderful, the lightig the stage decor etc. very overwhelming. Would go there again

London Box Office customer

The biggest Kareoke experience in London Theatre!

A wonderful evening for die-hard fans of Jim Steniman's music, lyrics and poetry - the songs from Bat out of Hell I and BoH II all stand the test of time - and being interpreted and sung by a strong cast (as opposed to the MeatLoaf sound) in their own way. The staging and costuming are good (a bit Mad Max meets New (16 times) York (for all those Whovians watching). The choreography is frankly very basic - and the storyline non-existent in Act II (which seemed to have been developed only to make sure that the songs not included in Act I were sung for the audience's gratification rather than making any sense or improving the story.. This is the ultimate Kareoke experience for fans - and most of them were having a whale of a time - though that should be "wail" of a time in the case of the guy 2 seats along from me. Yes I admit I was also singing - at least I can hold a tune and know the (correct) words ......BUT if you aren't a complete and total fan of Bat Out of Hell then this show probably isn't for you.
