Lost Boys & Golden Girls World Tour 1988

February 1988
A Snowy Day in New England

Hi,

Every year someone writes something about me in a tour book. This year I’ve decided to do the job myself because it would be fun and it is the "BAT OUT OF HELL 10TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL EDITION TOUR BOOK". The reason for the name "BAT OUT OF HELL 10TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL EDITION TOUR BOOK" is that I wanted to use gold letters on the cover and I wanted to have as many words as possible because gold really looks cool. So, here it is. "THE BAT OUT OF HELL 10TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL EDITION TOUR BOOK".

The actual tour is called "Lost Boys and Golden Girls Tour ‘88", but that didn’t have as many words as "BAT OUT OF HELL 10TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL EDITION TOUR BOOK". "Lost Boys and Golden Girls" is actually a song from an album called "Bad for Good" by my friend and colleague Jim Steinman who wrote the words and music for the album "Bat Out of Hell". And now here we are ten years later with the "BAT OUT OF HELL 10TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL EDITION TOUR BOOK".

Inside the "BAT OUT OF HELL 10TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL EDITION TOUR BOOK" you’ll see a collection of photos and memories of the last ten years on tour with Meat Loaf. As you’ll notice, I look exactly the same as I did ten years ago when I started touring at the age of fifteen. Some of the other members of the bands sure look funny in the old pictures. Be sure to check out the old pictures of Steve Buslowe. (Bob Kulick wouldn’t even let me use his old pictures.)

Tonight you are going to hear some Jim Steinman songs that you’ve never heard in concert before. Jim and I are sure that you will enjoy these additions to the show. As Jim said to me the other day on the phone, I can’t wait to hear them live. So get revved up, grab hold of your "BAT OUT OF HELL 10TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL EDITION TOUR BOOK" with a lot of gold letters on the front, and look around ‘cause the guy in the seat next to you could be Jim Steinman and we’re gonna take you out of the frying pan and into the fire.

Hope all your rock and roll dreams come through.

[signed] Rock on, Meat Loaf
