Meat Loaf to rock Penticton

Larger-than-life rock icon, Meat Loaf, will perform in Penticton, at the South Okanagan Events Centre on Thursday, June 23.

Some people think big. Some people think huge. And then there's Meat Loaf. For the past 40 years, he has been a towering monument on the musical landscape. His legendary 1977 album, Bat Out Of Hell, transformed this former stage actor into one of the great American rock 'n' roll icons. That record, with its staggering operatic sound and impassioned vocals, has sold more than 44 million albums worldwide and remains one of the best-selling albums in the world to date.

"Whether it comes to music or acting, I want people to be able to pull me out and step in," Meat Loaf reveals. "I want to disappear, and I want people to understand the emotion that I'm going through. It's about preserving the tension and feeling between the audience and myself. I want them to connect to the emotional level as opposed to just watching me."

Three multi- platinum albums followed the sophomore album, Bat Out Of Hell, including 1993’s Bat Out Of Hell II:  Back Into Hell (which sold 5 million in the U.S., 15 million worldwide), producing the hit, Grammy-winning single, I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That), a #1 single in 28 countries, earning the honor for Best Rock Vocal Performance Solo.

Meat Loaf is still the same larger-than-life rock icon, whose over-the-top shows are one-of-a-kind.

Tickets go on sale Friday April 8 at 12 p.m. and will be available in person at the Valley First Box Office (at the SOEC) or Wine Country Visitor Centre, by phone 1-877-SOEC-TIX (763-2849) or online at ValleyFirstTix.com
