The epic classic rock album 'Bat Out Of Hell', written by musical genius Jim Steinman and known for the passionate performance by Meat Loaf, celebrates its 40 year anniversary. To many people, the record represents the soundtrack of their youth, and with 43 million sold copies worldwide, it is still one of the best-selling albums of all time. Star guitarist Menno Gootjes from the Dutch progressive rock band Focus ('Hocus Pocus', 'Sylvia', 'House Of The King') is embarking on this ambitious 'Like A Bat Out of Hell' project by playing the masterpiece in its entirety in a live performance: a first!
For this purpose, Gootjes has put together an extensive band with the best musicians and top vocalists Martin van der Starre (Symfo Classics, ‘Woodstock The Story’, ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’), Mirjam von Eigen (among others known for Elvis Presley Enterprises production ‘The Wonder Of You’) and Lisette van den Berg (Scarlet Stories, Ayreon, Karmaflow). You will not only be treated to a full version of “Bat Out Of Hell” (including ‘Paradise By The Dashboard Light’ and ‘You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth’), but aslo other hits (‘I’d Do Anything For Love ‘) and live classics (‘Rock And Roll Dreams Come Through’) from Meat Loaf including some surprises.
