Bat Out Of Hell rides on into 2019

Jim Steinman’s epic rock musical, Bat Out Of Hell, has enjoyed its time in the West End so much, it’s sticking around a bit longer. The new show that’s been wowing audiences with its monster score and giant special effects is extending its Dominion Theatre run to 5 January 2019.

The post-apocalyptic musical uses the songs from Meatloaf’s record-breaking album of the same name to tell the story of Strat – a young rebel and the ringleader of the wild gang, The Lost. After a chance meeting, Strat falls in love with a tyrannical leader’s daughter, Raven, which leads to a star-crossed love affair. The pair go on a full-throttled journey packed with youthful rebellion, passion and rock and roll.

The show opened to critical and audience praise during its limited run at the London Coliseum last year. Since opening at the Dominion Theatre in April 2018, Bat Out Of Hell has had the crowds utterly pumped with adrenaline at every single performance.

For the stage musical, Jim – the legendary and award-winning songwriter behind Meatloaf’s iconic albums – has incorporated songs from the Bat Out Of Hell albums, including You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth, Bat Out Of Hell, I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That), and Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad, as well as two previously unreleased songs.

Bat Out Of Hell became one of the best-selling albums in history, selling over 50 million copies worldwide. 16 years later, Steinman scored again with Bat Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell.

In April 2018, Bat Out Of Hell announced a wide-ranging global partnership to support the Invictus Games Foundation, the governing body of the Invictus Games, a global sporting event for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women, both serving and veterans.

The new booking period will go on sale today at 12pm. Get your tickets to Bat Out Of Hell, here.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
