I may be being blind as a bat, but can anyone provide a link to the posts from the promoter, as I can not find anything on fb or twitter, other than posts saying about the posts!

Maybe it's just me, but I really LIKE the idea of having Meat as the 'story teller' (for any of you old to remember the John Hurt/Jim Henson series of the same name), introducing anecdotal snapshots of his past that are dramatised before us. I think it's a really bold, exciting NEW idea.

I agree. I don't imagine for one minute they are trying to make a Meat Loaf tribute or replicate the great man himself. They are putting together a great band, a (presumably) great singer, and a great storyteller. What's not to like?

Yes it would be even more awesome if Meat was still able to belt them out and I wish he could. But I also wish I'd won the lottery, remain won the referendum, and that I had never seen Spectre. Point is, there's no point wishing things weren't as they are, just got to deal positively with reality.

You won't on FB unless you are a member of one of the fan groups the guy posted in, and find it tucked in a thread. (I think he may have just joined the two with numbers of members in the thousands, perhaps thinking membership numbers = active participation and thus importance/significance in the fan community. He may know rock 'n roll but have a helluva lot to learn about us ). I picked up on it more by luck than judgement, checked it out with him, and passed it on here, because I don't like to see anyone thinking Meat will be appearing in the UK tour when this time he's not. I think support is built better on informed interest than disappointment.

Exactly .. and if in the future Meat is able to join the line-up as storyteller, we know he can kick that one out of the park

Yes, and given Meat has always been someone bold, exciting, and inventive in visioning those rock and roll shows we have embraced for decades, if down the line he can do that? That one would get me reaching for my touring shoes and planning my tour itinerary!

In the meantime with, as Panic Lord says, a great band and singer ... who'll be delivering the music we all love .. What's not to like?

Found it in the Mad about Meatloaf group, for those not members the post reads -

(Convo between Jeff Hall (UK Promoter) & Sandra Allender,

Jeff - There's been some misreporting of what the show is. Meat isn't going to be on the tour, it will be Meat's band The Neverland Express + Caleb Johnson, performing a straight up concert of Meat Loafs back catalogue. Of course there is no official announcement yet, just the rumours and mis-reported news stories. The 'teaser' UK announcement is pencilled for 20th July, with the dates announced on the 25th July.


Sandra - think you are completely wrong Meat told me a while back he would like to do something along these lines and I am sure he will tour with it I am not sure it will be a massive World Tour though. The whole ethos of the show is Meat Loaf presenting Paul Crook directing NLE playing and Caleb doing the singing. That is the impression Meat gave me he said he wanted to do something along the lines of storytellers/Rocktales. It seems to have been backed up on promoters website as well.

Jeff - Hi Sandra. I'm promoting the UK tour that announces later this month. There is no mention of Meat appearing at any of the shows, intact i was made clear of quite the opposite.

Sandra - When you say you are promoting the uk show who are you promoting on behalf of ....I am confused as no involvement from Meat is a way off what he said he was wanting to do.

Jeff - i am essentially the one hiring the band and then booking the venues and selling the tickets. Obviously it would be great if Meat was to be present and involved in the shows in person, however my understanding he will not be.

Sandra - So you are hiring NLE....lucky you they are a great bunch. I think if there is no involvement from Meat its appeal will diminish

Nah... the truth is I am hiring the band, representing Meat and telling Meat what he is having for dessert tomorrow whether he likes Salmon baked on top of a cheesecake mixed with a Happy Meal smoothie or not. I have decided to post in a random Facebook group what is going to happen, when and why.

I personally think this is great news.
Of course, it is not the biggest thing (as it would be Meat really singing on stage)... But it is definitely SOMETHING! Definitely better than no upcoming events at all.

And don't forget. We probably got the NLE & the enchanting melodies & Caleb's voice is rocking!

It's not 100 % Meat. But it keeps his spirit alive.

I'm looking forward to it..
