Rock veteran Meat Loaf is to play a "final goodbye" to fans by performing his epic hit album Bat Out Of Hell in full for the first time at a series of UK shows, starting in Newcastle.
The singer will play arena gigs in April as part of his Last At Bat tour, featuring a set of greatest hits as well as the classic 1977 album which made him a global star.
Meat Loaf, 65, previously announced he was retiring five years ago but continued to perform.
The dates were announced as his chance to "bid a final goodbye to his fans", and a publicist said they understood this was going to be his last tour.
The singer said: "I know the fans will enjoy the show as much as I enjoyed putting it together."
