5.0 star rating Mike from Liverpool,


Amazing production, confusing story but hey WGAS. the music orchestra was incredible, singing voices unfaltering clear and powerful and sang all the well known tracks amazingly well. Would recommend for a fun night out.

5.0 star rating Michelle D from Liverpool,


Fabulous songs by amazingly talented singers. Loved every minute.

4.0 star rating Johnny Gorbals from Liverpool,


While a bit lacking in energy for an opening night the cast did a fine job with the wonderful songs. Paradise by the Dashboard Light was a standout in every way and Bat could have closed the show as the second half was a bit draggy. We enjoyed the night despite the ban on singing along and can recommend the show to lovers of the music.

3.0 star rating TheatreThelma from London, England


Saw the show on opening night at Wimbledon. The music content is great as you would expect and the choreography good, but voices weren't all strong and some definitely weren't suited to rock - they sounded like soul/blues voices being squeezed into a rock costume - that didn't fit! It seemed like a long show with a very thin plot and dragged on... Great scenes with quirky live camera feed projected on screen, but unfortunately not visible to those in the upper circle who missed most of it. Definitely NOT one of my favourites.

3.0 star rating A Taylor from Edinburgh,


Been to many musicals over the years and this is the 1st when you’re not allowed to sing!!! What’s the point in that?? Musicals are all about singing along and enjoying the show, so hard trying not to sing to the iconic songs of meatloaf- he’ll be turning in his grave right now!!! Also should be stating this when booking !!!

2.0 star rating Steve from Bristol,


People are easily pleased judging by the rave reviews - zero story & zero respect to the amazing vocal talent that was Meatloaf. They tried sure enough but to me as a lifelong fan, it failed to meet the mark.

What we thought

Epic operatic EXPERIENCE

Bat Out of Hell revs you harder than a Harley Davidson

What we thought of Bat Out of Hell in London, 2017:A high-octane thrill ride, this epic stage adaptation of the already fairly epic album(s) is utterly irresistible.
