Meat Loaf
Mr. Meat Loaf is returning to action less than 12 months after hanging up his bat. Meat Loaf will head to Las Vegas in February for a 24-date residency at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino for Rocktellz & Cocktails. In May, 2013, Meat Loaf announced he would no longer tour due to the 'nightly stress' but a stable location such as Vegas allows him to continue to perform. The Rocktellz & Cocktails format is the full-on rock concert mixed with stories from the artists, much like the VH1/MTV Unplugged shows.
'I had so much fun doing the show in the fall, I couldn't wait to extend my time in Vegas when they asked me to,' said Meat Loaf. 'For me, the show is more than just another concert because the RockTellz & CockTails format allows me to add something different. I'm able to bring together music, acting and theater and do things you can't normally do when you're on the road. I get to have a lot of fun and it definitely shows.'
