Storyline

Actor, performer, and multi-platinum rock icon Meat Loaf reveals surprising shades of himself - and a fertile creative mind in constant flux - in this intimate and highly-entertaining theatrical feature documentary. The time is early 2007, one of the most stressful in Meat Loaf's career, when he is about to launch his most ambitious tour ever: an 18 month long marathon to support Bat Out of Hell III, the final album of the legendary "Bat" trilogy (first two albums had combined sales of over 55 million- two of the biggest selling albums of all time). His exhausting - and often poignant - journey takes him from Burbank, California through the first leg of his tour through Canada. Along the way, an unexpected media controversy erupts over the staging of one of his songs - a controversy that raises questions about his art, his age, his relevance - and brings into focus the drive (and demons) that have fueled his over-the-top stage persona for almost 40 years.

Always room for Meat Loaf
29 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Since the 1960's up to today in the 2000's Meat Loaf is still the consummate performer. When on tour He goes out night after night despite Doctor's warnings that if he does not take it easy he will kill himself. Meat Loaf is still larger than life even in his late 50s. He does not let his fans down and will go out there and deliver that powerful voice that sounds like a bomb blast.

This documentary is about the 2007 Bat III Tour and what it took to get it flying. You get moments at home, backstage, on the tour bus, and of course full blast Meat Loaf Rock N Roll Onstage Live in Concert. Watch this movie then go see the man himself Meat Loaf live and get blown away by this long lasting raging bull.
