BAT OUT OF HELL: THE ORIGINAL TOUR



Bat Out of Hell-Live

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 he also captivates audiences with the riveting nature of his songs, with the help of the album’s songwriter Jim Steinman and female vocalist Karla DeVito.

Bruce Kulick's presence in the band gave the tunes a heavier edge that trumped the album versions.

That was before she joined Sammy at Cheers. And before Bruce Kulick joined KISS...

I love the Loaf. But he will always be Eddie to me though ;)

This stuff just shows that the Meat is nothing without the songwriting chops of Jim Steinman. The non-Steinman penned material in his catalog is far inferior by comparison. Steinman's over the top bombastic music & lyrics are tailor-made for Meat Loaf's over the top bombastic vocal delivery.
