Meat Loaf – Wednesday, June 27 Wiltern Theater

Meat Loaf

Iconic singer MEAT LOAF will be hitting the road this summer on his “Mad, Mad World Tour” in support of his newly released album, HELL IN A HANDBASKET and will be stopping in Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 27 at the Wiltern Theater

For the tour, MEAT LOAF says, “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.” Joining MEAT LOAF onstage will be his longtime band THE NEVERLAND EXPRESS: guitarist Paul Crook (who also produced the Hell In A Handbasket album), John Miceli (drums, percussion), Patti Russo (lead and backing vocals), Randy Flowers (guitars, vocals), David Luther (saxophone, vocals), Justin Avery (piano, organ, keyboard, vocals), Danny Miranda (electric and upright bass) and Ginny Luke (violin, vocals).

MEAT LOAF—whose 1977 breakout album Bat Out Of Hell defined the arena rock genre and remains one of the world’s five top-selling albums of all-time, with more than 43 million copies sold to date—is excited about his new album, HELL IN A HANDBASKET (released March 13 via Sony/Legacy). Produced by Paul Cook, this is his most autobiographical album to date, a thematic record that easily crosses any number of genres, featuring such unlikely contributors as rappers Chuck D and Lil Jon, country star Trace Adkins, and Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath. It’s an album about feeling alone and disconnected from the world around you, at the same time as it tries to tap into what unifies us as fellow humans on this topsy-turvy planet in 2012. MEAT LOAF recently performed new song “The Giving Tree” on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”

MEAT LOAF recently conducted a Q&A about the “Mad Mad World Tour” which can be viewed here:
