Paul Crook said: “To be perfectly honest, it’s going to be emotional as it’s our first time overseas without Meat Loaf.  I know I can speak for the band in saying we have always considered our UK fanbase as family, a second home.

"They are loud, fun, passionate and, together with them, we are going to make this tour the ultimate celebration of our beloved Boss.  Meat Loaf loved touring the UK and to say that he appreciated his fans would be an understatement.

"Very much like Meat Loaf, Caleb is a charming, true southern gentleman with a huge voice. This will be his very first time in the UK. We believe that our fanbase is going to welcome him into the “family” the second he steps on stage”

Caleb Johnson said: “I’m super excited and honored to be celebrating this legendary and iconic music. My life forever changed after hearing the blockbuster album "Bat Out of Hell” for the first time when I was 15 years old.

"Meat Loaf is a massive hero of mine and I’m looking forward to rocking with the UK family!”
