Meat Loaf is legendary musical icon and actor who has enjoyed a long career filled with unpredictable twists and turns and countless ups and downs. Over the course of his four and a half decade career, he’s lived through some epic tales… which is why he was the perfect star to headline the first inception of the Rocktellz and Cocktails show at Planet Hollywood, which combines musical performances with storytelling.
The concept of the innovative Rocktellz and Cocktails format is to create an interactive experience where music legends do more than perform their hit songs; they take audiences on a personal journey through their careers and tell intimate and revealing stories about their lives. A charismatic raconteur like Meat Loaf was an obvious choice to headline the show, because he’s got stories you’ll have to hear to believe from the course of his mega-selling and Grammy winning career.
While the show is more than just the standard concert, Meat Loaf does perform some of his greatest hits, showing off his still amazing vocal abilities on the maximalist epics “Paradise by the Dashboard Light”, “I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That”, and “You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night)” from his classic 1977 Bat out of Hell record as well as beloved cuts from other phases of his long career. Between songs, Meat Loaf talks about the creation of the classic tracks, telling stories of his famous collaborators, the crazy days recording the music, the inspiration behind the lyrics, and road stories from the debauchery filled world tours during the height of his fame. He also tells a few anecdotes from the sets of his film and TV resume, which includes unforgettable roles in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Fight Club, and many more.
Meat Loaf’s dramatic theatrical stage persona and three octave vocal range made him one of the biggest selling rock stars of all time, while his unique charisma made him a beloved character actor with a long list of credits. His amazing life story and deep catalogue of hits makes for an epic night of storytelling and music in his unique Rocktellz and Cocktails performances at The Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
