Some people think huge
Then theres...Meat Loaf
While other artists may have tried to match his scale and sound, so far none have even come close.
Meat Loaf certainly requires no introduction, he burst onto the world music stage in 1977 with his landmark release Bat Out Of Hell, which transformed him from a stage actor into a rock n roll icon. This album has sold more than 43 million copies worldwide and is the third biggest selling record of all time - 23 x Platinum status - and it still sells in excess of 200,000 copies a year.
Following Bat Out Of Hell came such masterpieces as 1981 s Dead Ringer, 1984s Bad Attitude, and the Bat Out Of Hell sequels, 1993 s Bat Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell and 2006 s Bat Out Of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose, not to mention 2010s Hang Cool Teddy Bear.
The 11 concert Guilty Pleasure Tour of Australia and New Zealand was an enormous commercial success generating revenues estimated to be in excess of $8m and this DVD celebrates the global phenomenon that is Meat Loaf!

64-year-old Meat Loaf hits the stage in Sydney (shortly after a disastrous live performance at the AFL final) accompanied by an army of HD cameras filming what he announced to fans would be one of his final trips to perform in Australia/New Zealand. He makes restitution in full for the AFL nightmare.

The video is outstanding; I'd even go so far as to say flawless. It's simultaneously grand and intimate, basked in vivid colours, and tack-sharp HD. The audio mix on the Blu-ray is equally without fault offering dynamics, impact, clarity, and openness. The addition of a violinist and a sax-player to the band adds a great twist to some of the sound. In particular, the sax-player (Dave Luther) is musically astounding; I've always felt that live rock is aided by the presence of a sax and this is absolute proof. Meat's band has for for 30 years been the single best in the entire business and they are note-perfect here for every second of the performance. Some pieces have been changed out from the long-term lineup, most notably Justin Avery is in and Mark Alexander is out.Read more ›
