Bat Out of Hell – The Musical is back! The show played limited seasons at Swansea Arena and Capitol Theater Düsseldorf as well as an Arena tour of New Zealand and Australia. The great news is Bat Out of Hell is returning to London for a limited time only.
The production will then return back home to the UK and play the Peacock Theatre in the West End from 17 February – 1 April 2023.
Bat Out of Hell – The Musical wowed critics and public alike with countless repeat visitors when it played limited seasons at Manchester Opera House, London Coliseum and London’s Dominion Theatre from 2017 to 2019. The musical also ran successfully in Canada, Germany and at New York’s City Centre in 2019. The current International tour began performances at Manchester Opera House on 11 September 2021 and has been playing to sold out houses and great critical acclaim. Bat Out of Hell – The Musical 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 60 million copies worldwide. 16 years after the release of the original album, Steinman scored again with Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell, which contained the massive hit I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That).
For the stage musical, the legendary and award-winning Jim Steinman 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 the previously unreleased song What Part of My Body Hurts the Most. These songs come alive every night with a great live band bringing a fresh modern take on these iconic songs.
Without too many spoilers, as the Lost boys and girls flee into the tunnels below the city from its ruler Falco, his teenage daughter Raven locks eyes with fearless leader of the Lost, the immortal Strat, and the immensity of their love-at-first-sight-obsessions threaten to destroy both of their families.
Bat Out of Hell dedicates this tour to the memory of Jim Steinman, who sadly passed away on 19 April 2021 and Meat Loaf who passed away on 20 January 2022.
