Some people think big. Some people think huge. And then there's Meat Loaf. For the past 40 years, he has been a towering monument on the musical landscape. His legendary 1977 album Bat Out Of Hell transformed this former stage actor into one of the great American rock 'n' roll icons. That record, with its staggering operatic sound and impassioned vocals, has sold more than 44 million albums worldwide and remains one of the best selling albums in the world to date. Mosaic Place is very excited to announce that Meat Loaf will take the stage in Moose Jaw on June 11th of this year. Tickets for the performance go on sale Friday, April 8th at 10am.
There is of course, a lot more to Meat Loaf than 'Bat Out Of Hell'. Three multi-platinum albums followed the sophomore album, including 1993's Bat Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell (which sold 5 million in the U.S., 15 million worldwide), producing the hit, Grammy-winning single, "I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)," a #1 single in 28 countries, earning the honor for Best Rock Vocal Performance Solo. Welcome to the Neighborhood went double-platinum in 1995, while 2003's Couldn't Have Said It Better earned platinum in 2003 and 2006's Bat Out Of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose, the third in the best-selling trilogy, nabbed platinum in 2006.
To date, Meats' also appeared in over 60 films and television shows ranging from The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Crazy In Alabama, Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny, Focus written by Arthur Miller with William Macy, Formula 1 with Sam Jackson, Fight Club with Brad Pitt to House, M.D., Masters of Horror, Hallmark's Citzen Jane, Monk and Glee.
