Award-Winning 'Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical' Returns to the UK for 2025 Tour

Following a triumphant UK, Ireland, and International tour from 2021 to 2023, the award-winning "Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical," featuring Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf’s greatest hits, is set to return to the UK in 2025. The tour will kick off on 6 January 2025 at Edinburgh Playhouse and will run through to 20 September 2025 in Northampton.

Inspired by the spectacular arena tour of Australia and New Zealand, this revamped production promises an exhilarating experience. Audiences can look forward to a dynamic eight-piece rock band on stage and sprawling multi-level platforms that bring to life the various worlds of Bat Out of Hell, from Raven’s bedroom to the depths of the Lost’s underground domains.

The cast will feature returning stars Glenn Adamson (We Will Rock You, London Coliseum, Bat Boy in concert, London Palladium) as Strat, Katie Tonkinson (Bonnie and Clyde, UK & Ireland Tour) as Raven, and original leading cast members Rob Fowler (MAMMA MIA!, UK & International tour, Tanz Der Vampire Das Musical, German tour) as Falco, and Sharon Sexton (MAMMA MIA!, UK & International tour, Billy Elliot The Musical) as Sloane.

"Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical" has impressed critics and audiences alike with its performances at Manchester Opera House, London Coliseum, and London’s Dominion Theatre. The show has also seen successful runs in Canada, Germany, New York, a residency in Las Vegas, and an international tour covering the UK, Ireland, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand. The musical won the Radio 2 Audience Award for Best Musical at the Evening Standard Awards and received eight WhatsOnStage Award nominations, including Best New Musical.

The "Bat Out of Hell" album is one of the best-selling albums in history, with over 68 million copies sold worldwide. Sixteen years after its original release, Jim Steinman followed up with "Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell," featuring the massive hit "I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)."

For the stage musical, Steinman included iconic songs from the Bat Out of Hell albums, such as "You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth," "Bat Out of Hell," "I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)," and "Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad," along with the previously unreleased track "What Part of My Body Hurts the Most."

The musical follows the story of the Lost boys and girls fleeing into the tunnels below the city from its ruler Falco. When Falco’s teenage daughter Raven meets the fearless leader of the Lost, the immortal Strat, their intense love-at-first-sight threatens to destroy both of their families.
