Welcome to the almost complete Meat Loaf and Jim Steinman lyric archive

“Bat Out of Hell — Das Musical” lyrics

The German production of Jim Steinman’s “Bat Out of Hell” — Das Musical mit den Welthits von Meat Loaf has opened in Oberhausen, Germany on November 8th, 2018. Because of the incredibly awesome work of Jonathan Rupprecht, I can now present the German lyrics to all the songs in the musical. Thank you, Jonathan!
An official video for a German language, edited version of “Bat Out of Hell” can be found on the promotional stuff about the musical page.
Tickets for “Bat Out of Hell” — Das Musical are available from musicals.de.

Since the last update, very confusing things happened to the North American Bat Out of Hell — The Musical tour. It started as planned in Toronto, but just before its final show there the rest of the tour first got cancelled, then postponed.
The official word is now that the musical will launch in 2019 ahead of a previously announced season at New York City Center. The production is working with everyone involved to reschedule the dates and news about the North American Tour will be announced soon.
To sign up for priority tickets for New York City Center in Summer 2019, visit the official Bat Out Of Hell — The Musical website.

The current London season is ending on January 5, 2019.

Bonnie Tyler will be touring Europe in 2019, and I am going to see her show in Utrecht. This will be her first concert in The Netherlands since she did the Night of the Proms in the early 2002, and her first solo show here in forever.
I’ll be traveling to Oberhausen to see the Bat — Das Musical in two weeks’ time, so you can expect a review in the weeks to come. Work on the updates for the Bonnie Tyler and Patti Russo pages is nearing completion. Then, I also need to figure out how to incorporate the review (I still need to write) of the Ellen Foley biography I read into the site. I hope that I can wrap this all up soonish.
