“People who come to Meat Loaf shows know what to expect. They know they’re going to get full-on energy with the best rock ‘n’ roll band in the world. That’s not an opinion. That’s the truth,” says legendary singer Marvin Lee Aday, better known throughout the world as Meat Loaf. The acclaimed songster’s deserved ego often writes checks that his inimitable voice can most certainly cash, as electrified audiences will attest to throughout his Mad Mad World summer tour.
Mr. Loaf burst onto the scene in 1977 with his aptly titled debut album, Bat Out of Hell, which transfixed listeners with a musical force never before experienced: a rock opera that straddles a fiery motorcycle and blazes down highways of unbridled lust. The bombastically theatrical record became one of the top-selling albums of all time, nudging its way into rock ‘n’ roll’s closely guarded heart with aural aphrodisiacs such as “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” and “You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night).” Meat Loaf’s Bat Out of Hell sequels continued his momentum with the immortal hit “I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That),” which can sneak up on minds unannounced like haunting memories of getting your head stuck between two railings.
For the Mad Mad World tour, Meat Loaf hits the road with his longtime backup band, The Neverland Express, in support of his latest album, Hell in a Handbasket, which is chock-full of his signature stadium riffs and impassioned big-bad-wolf bellowing. Along with his newest ballads and anthems, expect to hear Meat Loaf’s seminal hits that midwifed the last three decades.

About Tower Theatre
Several decades of disparate architectural styles stand at the corner of 69th and Ludlow: an old-fashioned radio tower atop the Doric columns of a faux-classical cupola atop a streamlined marquee that broadcasts the year the Tower Theatre opened as a music venue: 1972. That's when it began helping introduce the world to such acts as David Bowie, Genesis, and Bruce Springsteen. Inside, red lights glow over an auditorium done up in the 1920s style of the movie palace that originally filled the venue, with marble pillars, Italianate archways, and an enormous light fixture that resembles an old film reel.
