PENTICTON - If you missed seeing him in the 70s, 80s, 90s or 00s, don’t worry, Meat Loaf is back for another tour and it includes a stop in the South Okanagan.

Known best for his Bat Out Of Hell trilogy of albums, the rocker is stopping in Penticton this June, one of several stops on his latest tour.

Meat Loaf has sold more than 44 million Bat Out Of Hell albums worldwide and has had several multi-platinum albums since. Among his best known songs are I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That, Objects in the Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Are and Paradise by the Dashboard Light.

"Whether it comes to music or acting, I want people to be able to pull me out and step in," Meat Loaf says in a release. "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."

He has released more than a dozen albums over the years, with his latest album Braver Than We Are set to release this year.

Tickets for the June 23 show at the South Okanagan Events Centre start at $49 and go on sale this Friday, April 8, at noon. Tickets can be purchased in person at the events centre box office or the Wine Country Visitor Centre, by phone 1-877-763-2849 or online at
