Featuring an international cast, the award-winning stage musical has been transformed into an arena rock musical and will feature iconic songs from the Bat Out Of Hell albums, including You Took The Words Right Out of My Mouth, Bat Out Of Hell, I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That), and Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad.
These electrifying rock songs propel an epic story of rebellious youth and passion as Strat, the immortal leader of The Lost, has fallen in love with Raven, the beautiful daughter of the tyrannical ruler Falco.
The three Bat Out Of Hell albums have sold a staggering 100 million copies globally. The first album, released in 1977, is one of the best-selling albums of all time internationally and in Australia is the highest selling album of all time selling 1.8 million copies. In 2003, the album was named one of “Greatest Albums of All Time” by Rolling Stone.

“When’s the last time it felt as if an entire theater were about to levitate? That experience – electrifying and giddy and guaranteed to tap into every playgoer’s inner rock god – can be had at the Jim Steinman musical, Bat Out Of Hell, which is all but blasting an adoring audience out of their seats. Count me among the adorers.” – The New York Times
