Meat Loaf has formally announced a Las Vegas NV residency.
The 65-year-old musician will perform 18 dates at the famous Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the famous Strip starting on September 26.
The rocker’s RockTellz & CockTails show will consist of a stripped down set of his biggest hits, such as ‘I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)’, ‘Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad’ & ‘Paradise by the Dashboard Light’, & the concerts will cover his whole entire 47-year career.
Meat Loaf cannot wait to shrink his usually massive shows in to a smaller setting.
He said: ”I’m thrilled & honoured to headline the 1st series of RockTellz & CockTails in Las Vegas. I’m excited to offer my fans such a personal experience, one in that lets them share in the crazy journey I’ve been on for the past 47 years.”
RockTellz & CockTails Presents Meat Loaf will be performed every Thursday, Saturday & Tuesday from September 26 to November 5.
Tickets go on sale at 10am (PST) on August 2.
Meat Loaf had to cancel a number of dates on his ‘Last at Bat Tour’ of the UK earlier this year after experiencing ill health.
The musician-and-actor after admitted he is ”jealous” of other performers in their 60s who have no apparent health problems & can still bound around the stage in the same way they did when they were younger.
Meat Loaf – who has mobility problems caused by a knee replacement operation & balance issues caused by multiple concussions – said: ”I’ve had all these concussions & they’re now starting to play havoc with my equilibrium & balance. I was upstairs getting dressed earlier & if you’d had a camera on me, you’d be asking, ‘How much has in that guy had to drink?’ That’s a issue on stage. I stumble & people think I’ve been drinking.
”It upsets me & I’m jealous 'cause I see Bruce Springsteen sliding along the stage on his knees & Jagger’s still doing it, yet I’ve received 100 pounds on him & in that extra weight has a bearing on your bones & joints.”
