Default Tourdates Since 1977 - Discussion

The tour dates list can be found here

If you have dates that can be added please let me know, either via PM or via a post in this thread. Goal is to have a complete list of all the concerts Meat Loaf did

Awesome man! Though I don't believe most of the Dead Ringer dates actually happened due to the studio or something.

There should be some Aussie dates in the 90's and earlier too, as I know he has been here a few times, but I have no idea of dates, it was all a bit before my time!

Great work, Adje. I've been looking for such a list for ages.

You missed at least one German date. I'm pretty sure I attented a show in Leipzig on October 20, 2007 (venue: Arena).

By the way, does anybody know why the first part of the tour was called Seize The Night while the second part was called Three Bats?

Thank you all for the input and corrections. My sources vary from tourbooks to magazines to internet sites (kasiminfo has been a great source, many thanks to that). So it's more than possible that the BA tour dates changed or never happened.

I keep searching and diggin' though. All your input surely helps and is more than just appreciated!

Thanks all


p.s. I'll try to update the list but for some reason ccan't edit my tour posts. :)

You don't happen to have the exact dates?

The list is far from complete (yet) and some of you already pointed out mistakes in the list to. It's still a Work in Progress

I'm fixing what needs to be fixed and adding what can be added. Including more Aussie dates (although, I guess, for now only the 2011 Aussie dates really matter)

.. great idea, but you forget at 1994 the date 18.Sept. in Bielefeld.
This was my first Meat Loaf Concert.
And from this moment I was infected from "Meat-Virus".

This is great, I've been wanting a gigography for a long time.
Don't mean to pick holes in the list cos it's a brilliant effort but the 1 date I noticed that was missing was the Reading Festival in August 1988, not sure exactly what date though?

But what an event it was. I bet Meat wants to forget this one asap

Only time I saw Meatloaf was Reading Festival 1988 - he was on mid afternoon on the Saturday and got the full treatment! Result - exit one bruised ego, nursing a broken nose. I can't say he deserved to get a bottle right in the face, but he came on all 'Mega star' and that sort of thing didn't go down well with a Reading festival crowd back in those days....

Meat walked off during the opening number (a cover of 'Summertime Blues'), came back and did a few more songs then walked off again in a hail of bottles. He then came back and in a hasty revision of the set list played 'Bat Out Of Hell ...' which stemmed the tide totally, then started off 'All Revved Up...', got hit square on the nose with a bottle, gave the crowd the finger and walked off never to return.

Meatloaf was such a nice guy.... and really did NOT deserve the reaction he got from the crowd.... I remember telling him...in fact, almost WARNING him about their restlessness and that it might have been a hold over from the previous night... and he was just not hearing it. Sad really because I really was looking forward to hearing his set as I'd never seen him before....or since actually.
WTF

The bottle throwing at Reading (and to some extent Knebworth in 85) is the reason why Meat hasn't played a UK Festival since.

I know he played Corvette's in Burlington, NC in the fall of 1988 and Raleigh NC Memorial Auditorium very early in the Bat 2 tour right as AFL was taking flight, best show of any kind I have ever seen hands down. Wish I knew exact dates. Couldn't have been more than 40 or so people at Corvette's.

Wow a 1988 Summertime blues. Thats rare.... Those ignorant bottle throwing pisswits. He rarley ever started a 1988 show off with a cover. Guess he wasnt feeling Frying Pan.
