Bootleg DVD's of all 3 Live in Concert legs

I gathered enough material to create a Live in Concert in Canada DVD. It's a complete show with mainly footage from Toronto and some from Ottawa. With this DVD I have the trilogy complete (together with the US legs from 2015 and 2016) All three DVD's contain almost the same set lists. In 2015 Meat played Boneyard and replaced that in 2016 when Justin Avery couldn't tour with them. In the 2nd leg they played Promised Land instead. Canada got Mercury Blues and Hot Patootie.

I will review the DVD later on!

Meat Loaf talks about upcoming tour

Recently Meat Loaf has been a bit active on the Fan forum again. People have been positive about the album and Meat Loaf shared a bit of news on the upcoming tour. It looks like, because of current pain in his back, Meat Loaf will do the promo stuff and start his tour in Europe. It is uncertain if he will tour in the USA again.

New album got leaked for few hours

Apple Music made a huge mistake by leaking 'Braver than we Are' on their streaming platform. Meat Loaf's upcoming album, with a September release date, was available for free for several hours on June 23.

It's unclear what this will do in sales for the highly anticipated new album. It seems only die-hard fans found the free stream and it is likely they buy the album anyway.

Official statement after Meat Loaf's collapse

As you will all know, Meat collapsed during his concert last night. I'm pleased to tell you he is feeling better now. Meat's FB made the following announcement:

Meat Loaf collapsed Thursday night due to severe dehydration near the end of his concert at the Northern Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton, Alberta Canada.

He was admitted to a nearby hospital to undergo routine tests. His vital signs are stable and normal — additional tests are being performed but he is responsive and recovering well.

He extends his heartfelt thanks for everyone's support and well wishes, and is expecting a speedy and full recovery.

Any concert postponements / rescheduled dates will be announced at a later time.

Thank you for your support and understanding.

Tour news: US, Europe and new Last at Bat tour

On his Facebook Meat Loaf has replied to several fans according his touring. With the last tour ending just a few days ago Meat has already planned a new tour. The 2016 tour will start on March 12 and by the time it's June the shows will be arriving to Canada.

Meat also said that he has closed a deal with promoters for a Dublin and Belfast show in October as part of the European tour. So that will happen in the winter of 2016.

Then there is other big Tour news. Again on his Facebook, Meat mentioned in a reply to his fans that 2017 will have a DVD recording for the Last at Bat tour. According to Meat Loaf it was his best tour to date. So it seems the good folk in the U.S. will also get their own Last at Bat tour.

Finally Meat Loaf mentioned that he has some great ideas for the upcoming tour. He mentioned that he never thought he could top the Last at Bat shows but with his current plan he is confident this tour will be even better.

Glimpse of new 2015 DVD bootleg

Just a quick peak of what the upcoming boot is going to look like. As I mentioned earlier it will contain the entire show of the current Live Tour. The DVD contains about 100 minutes of footage with different video sources from different concerts. With one good audio source. Unfortunately security was tight during this tour so I did my best with the material available. It's a work in progress as I still hope to find some better video material in the next week.

Some news on Friday the 13th

Suiting this day it's mostly less good news...

Meat Loaf's tour lasts for another full week but I can tell already that there will be a full concert bootleg with video from different shows. It won't be as good as the LAB or Hang Cool DVD though. But it will be complete.

It looks more and more that the Christmas album is not going to happen. Meat responded to a fan on his facebook.

Meat Loaf also explained once again to a fan in South Africa that nobody wants to book him there. So a South African tour is not going to happen.

Meat loves Australia but after his last experience there, a return seems slim.

Album postponed again. Concerts update for 2016

On his facebook page Meat Loaf informed his fans that the album is yet again postponed. It won't get the March release but is pushed back to a September 2016 release instead. According to Meat Loaf this has to do with production delays because the wife of Paul Crook has health issues. The news of the postponed album might upset some fans but there is also good news about the tours:

Message for all we still have work to do on the record , Paul's wife got really sick and still is ,so we wish her well, he had to leave a month early. OK, Now ... We are planning a 5 week run in March, 2 weeks off then a 6 week run till June 10th . So we will be in many of you cities . I am reading and listening to you .

Then a big summer Tour with some of the New songs in the set . June 2016 till my Birthday 2016. Just an update . Nothing is every written in stone but those at the plans at the moment. M

Keep updated with Meat Loaf's facebook page

Busy times for Meat Loaf fans. Meat Loaf seems very hyped and happy with everything going on with the new album. The US tour for October/November is about to kick off in a month. Meat is constantly updating his facebook pages with hot news and there is plenty of interaction with his fans on facebook.

In the item below from September 5, I quoted Meat Loaf from his facebook page talking about the UK. That message seems to be gone now. I don't know if that means that Meat Loaf is changing his mind or that he just go tired of the negative comments he got. Fact is that there is so much positive things going on in the Meat Loaf universe that it's a shame some are focusing on, what they consider, negative.

Meat Loaf explains: No UK tour, no West End shows

Meat Loaf has stated again that he will not do another tour in the UK and Ireland. According to Meat Loaf he won't be able to top the Last at Bat tour from 2013. He also replied to a question about the West End shows that would be in the style of his Las Vegas concerts. Meat Loaf says the West End tickets would be too expensive and that's the reason they will not happen.

Although some fans may be disappointed by this news, Meat Loaf also stated that he will be in the UK to promote the new album, maybe with some in store signings.

To my friends in the UK and Ireland
I am going to write this again I have written it at least a 1000 times by now. There is a very very slim chance we will every do a show in the UK again. The chances are 95% against me every doing another show there . "THE LAST BAT " TOUR was great I can not top that show . I love you all very much , and will always be grateful , for you friendship , for your loyalty and the joy you brought to the Music. I send this message From, Jim, all the band members I have played with , And Me . Thank you with all my Heart .

100% there will never be another tour. Don't forget the new Album will be out in March and I will be in the UK for Promo and most likely some in store signings.

The album is delayed by a year. Meat Loaf has explained what happened on his facebook page .

The album is a year late . No one knew what was going on. I had major Back surgery . Told me I would be in the Hosiptal 3 days . I was in the Hospital for 17days . Since then I have had 4 out patient surgeries on my back . 3 months of rehab. Couldn't sing because it hurt to sing. Now we are with in days of Finishing the Record . Of course I am going to say it is amazing , but I should . Jim has been with us the whole time . Not in Person but through e-mail and sending him tracks . I am so Happy to be doing Jim songs I can't even start to tell you. There are a couple of non -Jim songs That the record co. wanted . They wanted more but I put my foot down and said no way . This is really a Jim and Meat record .That is the reason we were late getting it out . It's a bitch being old . For those of you who Know music . I hit an F# today . That is a high note, dude . I don't think I have every hit a note on a record that high before.

This record is very different , a lot of things that Jim has kept hidden . It was time to do the songs . The opening Track , I think will leave your mouth hanging open . It's like nothing anyone does.
I am singing on the new record with Ellen Foley and Karla DeVito.

had to have 4 out patient back surgeries. It delayed the record again . We are close now to being done . It will be out in March of 2016 . Yes ,I know a year Late . Like they say better late than never . It also allowed us to add some new Jim material which has never been heard. So all is good . Jim is very happy at the moment and if Jim is happy so am I.

With the new album being released in September, it's very likely that a few of the new songs will be played during this show.  Meat Loaf stated earlier in 2014 that he would do a few concerts in the U.S. in the late summer of 2015. With the concert in Aurora it seems Meat is keeping word and giving the U.S. crowd a chance to see him for one last time.

If and when new dates are announced we will post them on this website for your convenience.

Meat Loaf's BBC Documentary

Last Friday, BBC television aired a brand new documentary called: Meat Loaf: In and Out of Hell. Although the documentary didn't really show anything new it was still nice to see Meat Loaf in the spotlight again. The only 'new information' is that Meat Loaf confirmed that 'Who Needs the Young' is one of the 8 Steinman songs on the new and upcoming CD. Also the BBC showed about 2 minutes of Las Vegas footage during the documentary. We can only hope they saved the rest for a 60 or 90 minute TV registration of the Rocktellz and Cocktails concert.

The documentary is available on different Torrent sites and YouTube.

Tour Dates added

Got some new dates from the Tour List. So I updated that one. Please people, contact me if you have info on dates from concerts that are missing from THIS LIST!

Blu-Ray info added

Included info on my Blu-Ray discs from 3 Bats and the Guilty Pleasure tour. 3 Bats is a fantastic HD transfer. Too bad the concert wasn't fantastic. Guilty Pleasure was a great concert but the HD content is rather poor with much video noise and bad contrast. Sound on both discs is fantastic though. More can be found on the official DVD page by clicking HERE.

What's new!

It's been a bit quiet around Meat Loaf recently. So not much to tell. Meat is working on the new album, he is planning some shows at the London West End, which seems to be similar to the Vegas shows. And there will be a U.S. tour to promote the upcoming album. All of this will happen in 2015. Apparently the BBC recorded a show from Vegas, but there has been no information if and when they will broadcast this. If it's aired it will be likely to promote Meat Loaf's West End run.

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



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.


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
Anything for Love
Took the words

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.

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 '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.

Thanks to a great source I was able to listen to a superb sounding bootleg from the 'Last at Bat' concert from Berlin, Germany. Reviews will be posted later in the bootleg section but I can already say that the quality is a bit better than the London bootleg.

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!

Germany is next, Meat back in UK in August 2013

With a stunning performance in Cardiff, the UK part for the "Last at Bat" tour came to an end. ...For now. Meat will be back in May for two shows that were added later. Belfast and Dublin (Ireland) and the two shows from Manchester and Nottingham that were postponed.

And in August Meat Loaf will be back in the UK for at least two more shows at the Racecourses in Newmarket on August 16 and  Newbury on August 17. The shows will be approx. 70 minutes long.

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

From meatloafexperience.com we wish everybody a healthy and happy 2013.

From a Meat Loaf point of view we hope that 2013 brings us a great farewell tour and that many fans may see Meat Loaf live on stage. With the upcoming tour, the possibility of a late Christmas album and lots of other goodies we are sure it's going to be a fan-year to enjoy!
