US tour confirmed but West End shows are in doubt

Recently Meat Loaf mentioned they would bring Vegas to the West End in London. But with his latest message on his Facebook page it seems that things aren't that certain

"Meat Loaf: There will be one more tour of the US in the summer of 2015 .. Then if we can work it out, and I still can bring the energy , drive , and make it a great show like this one . I will bring The Vegas show to the WEST END in London. M"

There are many 'ifs' in that last line. At least the US tour in the summer of next year seems good to go. As for other shows, at this moment, we can only hope for the best.

At least 4 more bootlegs to be reviewed this week

Apart from the Last at Bat bootlegs, I also received some other bootlegs I still have to review. This week I will review the audio of the Sydney concert from 2004 (with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra) which is a great bootleg. Also the audio bootleg from the 1994 concert in Nurnberg, Germany. This is another fine 'Bat 2' bootleg. And I have two -incomplete- DVD's I have to review. One is a concert at Wembley Arena,from December 18, 2003. And the other is from Mannheim, Germany from October 22, 2007. That was one of the last '3 Bats' shows, before Meat had to cancel the tour because of illness.

Last at Bat complete audio bootleg set from German shows

I received the audio bootleg from Hamburg and Munchen recently. Which makes my German collection of the Last at Bat shows complete. And amazingly enough all the bootlegs sound very good. Also, the German shows seem better than most of the shows in the U.K. Where Meat was still working to perfect the shows during the early UK tour, Germany got an oiled machine. And when Meat got back to the UK after his German/Dutch concerts his voice started to wore out and Meat looked tired at the end. So Germany got the best of this tour and you can clearly hear it on these amazing bootlegs. Short reviews of the Hamburg and Munchen audio can be found on the CD bootleg page by clicking HERE

More new bootleg reviews soon

Well, thanks to a few fans I've received some new material. I've got some audio bootlegs and some (incomplete) video bootlegs to review. I can say that I received a nice audio bootleg from the Sydney concert in 2004 which I enjoyed tremendously. Anyway a lot of time and effort went into the Royal Albert Hall DVD and I haven't been feeling well for some time so the reviews will be posted somewhere in the upcoming weeks!

Meat Loaf at the Royal Albert Hall

If you ask people what they did on October 16 in 2006, most won't have a clue. If you ask the same question to a die hard Meat Loaf fan, the lucky ones will smile and say they were there when Meat Loaf rocked the Royal Albert Hall!
I wasn't there but according to the people who were, it was a magical night. Fans from different countries gathered to witness this One-Night event in London. It was part of the 'Bases are Loaded' concert tour. Which was a very short 'Pre-3 Bats' tour and this particular night Meat Loaf was performing one of his best shows. In fact Meat Loaf considers this one of his 3 best shows ever! The 100 minute concert had the best of all Bat albums and started with hits from Bat out of Hell and Bat out of Hell 2. After the interval Meat played songs from the upcoming Bat 3 album. This show was nothing like the 3 Bats tour and with people literally hanging on the stage it had a very intimate feeling.

Unfortunately there has never been a concert registration of this amazing evening. I know there are some professional videos taken from this show but not the entire concert. And the video that does exist is somewhere hidden in a vault.

30 Years SPINAL TAP and how it influenced Meat Loaf

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Spinal Tap. 'This is Spinal Tap' is my favorite Mock-Rockumentary ever made and has influenced a lot of people in the music industry and beyond. Meat Loaf has been one of them!

You can check out Meat Loaf's quotes on the YEAH! website, where YEAH! has also made their version (like pop-up video but for movies) of the classic movie available at absolutely no cost until April 11!

All I can say it's a MUST SEE! Unfortunately the contend is only available for the people in the U.S. but YEAH was kind enough to share Meat Loaf's quote with us about the influence Spinal Tab has had on him

-------------------------------

MEAT LOAF

Spinal Tap has always been on our tour bus. It is almost the true story of every rock band. Chris Guest is one of the most creative and funniest people I know, along with Michael McKean and Harry Shearer. I now don't care if my meat is too big for my bread, I will go on and be a professional, and I've made sure all my amps go to 11.

FAVORITE MOMENTS:

Their harmonies at Elvis' grave and when Harry Shearer got caught in his pod. The third, which I still cry over, is Stonehenge. P.S. Hello, Cleveland!

Don't shoot the messenger - Meat Loaf's angry speech

That Newmarket CD brings me to something completely different. Although I am extremely busy (some of you may have noticed because I haven't had time to reply to all your e-mails recently - which I will do... eventually) there have been almost a couple of dozen e-mails about Meat Loaf's speech at the end of the Newmarket bootleg DVD.

I have no clue where this is coming from but it seems some of you got upset about Meat Loaf's speech, where he talked about the lady that wrote a bad review and Meat wanting to visit her to smash her with a Bat. Some of the e-mails I received sounded quite mad.

First of all, I am not Meat loaf, I don't write his speeches and I have no influence in any of those things. I can agree that Meat Loaf  looked and sounded frustrated. Although it may not have been the best taste of humor, I'm sure it was meant in a 'funny' way.

That said, there might have been another reason for this 'outburst'. Even on his fan forum Meat Loaf received a lot of heat because of the Patti Russo situation. As I mentioned earlier, quite a few Meat fans are actually also Patti fans. And they criticized Meat loaf for not telling the fans that Patti was fired by him (or at least not present at the show). Patti had been fired by e-mail a month before the Newmarket show. And fans have been very vocal about their thoughts on this.

Meat Loaf took this quite personal and perhaps that explains he starts his speech -his time to vent- with "You are my friends, right? And friends always just listen and agree with you." Anyway, the rest of the speech sounded bitter and angry and the e-mails I received showed that (some of) you weren't that charmed by it. I appreciate your opinion but I have no part in anything Meat Loaf does or says. This is just a fan-site and I have no relations whatsoever with Meat Loaf.

I am sure that Meat Loaf is in a complete different 'zone' right now, being happy with his Vegas shows. But if you are still upset by his words, try to contact him on his facebook.

No Christmas CD this year, possible TV registration of Vegas show

Meat Loaf's Christmas album is still not in the making. Since 2011 there have been interviews where Meat is mentioning the 'Hot Holidays' album but so far Meat Loaf is too busy with the Vegas shows and after that working on the 'Brave and Crazy' album (with songs from Jim Steinman). Perhaps even followed with a few shows at London's West End and a continuation in Vegas. So the Christmas album, if it's going to happen, will be out earliest in December 2014.

During one of the Vegas shows Meat Loaf mentioned that producers are considering to tape the show for a possible TV special in January 2014. But as always, nothing is certain or confirmed. So we can just wait

Very mixed reviews on Vegas show

Meat is having his "Rocktellz & Cocktails" shows in Vegas but reviews are very mixed. The Meat Loaf fans enjoy the show but the 'ordinary' crowd sound more disappointed.

According to many the Q&A session feels staged and phony, with one reviewer claiming a woman got in halfway during the show just to ask a question. Also Meat's voice gets lot of critics from the casino crowd and the show itself is called dull and plain for a Vegas performance.

On the other hand Meat fans call it a real Vegas treat with acrobats and clowns at the first five minutes. A quick and funny Meat Loaf show with plenty of fun anecdotes. The only real upset by some of the fans seem to be the female singers. But then again, Meat fans are known for there loyalty to Patti Russo, who got fired prior to the Vegas shows.

Set list:
Runnin' for the Red Light/Life is a Lemon
Dead Ringer
Out of the Frying Pan
Hot Patooti/Time Warp

New Last at Bat Bootleg DVD's

Birmingham and Munchen are on DVD now. The Birmingham concert has probably the least quality of all the Last at Bat bootlegs with average video and not the best audio. The Munchen or Munich concert has great video and decent audio. With Stuttgart and Frankfurt this one fits between the best of the LAB bootlegs. You gotta love those Germans!

At this point over half of this tour's concerts have an audio and/or video bootleg. A very good score for a great tour. Missing from my list are Nottingham, Newcastle, Glasgow, Sheffield, Cardiff, Hamburg, Belfast and Dublin. Also looking for video of Oberhausen and Berlin.

Possible DVD recording from Vegas show

On the UK fan forum Meat posted a message that the producers of the Vegas show "Rocktellz & Cocktails" mentioned the possibility of filming the show.

Well I had time to finally listen to the two audio bootlegs that were in my shelf for some time. A great show from Oberhausen with very nice audio. This was the last ever Meat Loaf concert in Germany/ And there is the show from Birmingham. Audio on that one is just below average and has some distortions. The show itself is very similar to the concert from London. It was recorded just two days after that show in London.  For more on the CD reviews click HERE

Meat Loaf farewell concert on DVD bootleg

Last at Bat must have been one of the most bootlegged Meat Loaf tours. What was missing was the final show in Manchester. But it is here now! Maybe not the best performance but a strong and emotional show nonetheless. Quality wise it is fair with overall great video quality and ok sound.

Apart from this bootleg, I also got my hands on 2 incomplete DVD bootlegs from Hamburg and Munchen (80 and 100 minutes). All in all a nice collection of Meat's very successful Farewell Tour!

Meat Loaf continues to perform great shows. Belfast and Dublin had great reviews from the fans. And with just two more shows (the postponed shows from Newcastle and Nottingham) the Last at Bat tour has almost come to a close and already we can call Meat Loaf's farewell to Europe a major success!

Meat Loaf 'makes things right' in the Netherlands

After the two concerts from 2007 and 2008 (which Meat Loaf himself claims to be his two worst ever) he returned to the Netherlands, after 5 years of absence. On Saturday evening the Big guy came to say his farewell to the Dutch fans. With a spectacular 2,5 hour show Meat Loaf did not just give a remembering and impressive show, but also washed away any bad taste that was left from the 07 and 08 performances.

Meat Loaf walks off to return in Stuttgart

A lot of German fans got really startled at the concert of 3 May in Stuttgart. Meat Loaf left the stage after 'Life is a Lemon' indicating he couldn't go on. After some discussion in the band they continued the set with Dead Ringer. When Meat didn't return, Patti Russo was the only one singing the duet. After Dead Ringer the band started playing a Queen song when Meat Loaf suddenly returned! He apologized and continued the concert. Meat Loaf clearly didn't feel too well but managed to finish the 2,5 hour show. In fact, the big guy sounded better and better during the performance.

Thanks to a great German fan I was able to listen to this show. He recorded both the complete audio and video of this concert.

Frankfurt sets high standard for the rest of the tour

Last night Meat faced, arguably, the best crowd of the tour so far.  Frankfurt rocked the night away and Meat Loaf seemed to enjoy it. Performing as good if not better than during the UK shows and with a crowd that were overexcited, it seems that this concert is hard to top. Reviews from fans on the German, Dutch and English fan forums are incredibly positive for last night's show. If Meat continues to hold on to this energy the upcoming concerts are going to be a real treat!

Now it's time for Germany to get rocked with a closure in the Netherlands. Both countries have been waiting since 2008 for a Meat Loaf concert and this Thursday Frankfurt will be the first German city to welcome Meat loaf and the Neverland Express.

Dead Ringer Concert DVD bootleg

Combined with footage from different sources, this has been an effort to create the feel of a Dead Ringer Concert. It's welcomed because, so far, a real Dead Ringer concert doesn't exist. With some rare live footage this is a welcome addition to my collection nonetheless. Read a complete review in the DVD Bootleg Section
