TICKETS ON SALE FOR BAT OUT OF HELL (6 NOVEMBER 2016)

The world premiere of the long-awaited Jim Steinman's Bat Out Of Hell - The Musical will take place in London's West End at the London Coliseum, with previews from 5 June, for a limited season until 22 July 2017. This week, Meat Loaf introduced Andrew Polec and the cast in a live performance outside the Coliseum on St Martin's Lane.

As with many great works of art, the genesis of the Bat Out Of Hell album occurred across a number of years. One of the songs was written while Steinman was an undergraduate at Amherst College in the late 1960s. In the 1970s, Steinman wrote a theatrical musical that was presented in workshop in Washington D.C. in 1974 and featured many of the songs that would ultimately appear on the Bat Out Of Hell album, which was released in 1977. It became one of the best-selling albums in history, selling over 50 million copies worldwide. Sixteen years later, Steinman scored again with Bat Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell.

For the stage musical, Jim Steinman has incorporated 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. The musical is a romantic adventure about rebellious youth and passionate love, set against the backdrop of a post-cataclysmic city adrift from the mainland.
