Meat Loaf’s 'Guilty Pleasure' TourMeat Loaf’s ‘Guilty Pleasure’ tour promises to feature a stellar array of Meat Loaf hits, both past and present. It will be big! It will be dramatic! It will ROCK!



Some people think big. Some people think huge. Then there's Meat Loaf. While other artists may have tried to match his scale and sound, so far none have come close. Happily, he's heading back New Zealand for a run of arena shows proudly presented by The Frontier Touring Company.



Meat Loaf certainly requires no introduction, he burst onto the world music stage in 1977 with his landmark release Bat Out Of Hell, which transformed him from a stage actor into a rock 'n' roll icon. This album has sold more than 43 million copies worldwide and is the third biggest selling record of all time, selling in excess of 200,000 copies a year!
