Meat Loaf has announced a new list of live dates that will, apparently, be his last ever.

Each of Meat et al’s eight ‘Last At Bat’ shows, as are happening between 5-21 Apr 2013, will comprise a “concert in two acts”; the first half a set of greatest hits, and the latter an unedited rendition of his 1977 debut LP, ‘Bat Out Of Hell’.

Says Mr Loaf of his and collaborator Jim Steinman’s pre and post-‘Bat’ experience: “When we first came together, we couldn’t have dreamt the profound effect ‘Bat Out Of Hell’ would have on both our lives, and the lives of our fans around the world. I know the fans will enjoy the show as much as I enjoyed putting it together”.

Ah, that’s nice. And now, the dates:

5 Apr: Newcastle, Metro Arena
7 Apr: Glasgow, SECC
10 Apr: London, O2 Arena
12 Apr: Birmingham, LG Arena
14 Apr: Nottingham, Capital Fm Arena
17 Apr: Manchester Arena
19 Apr: Sheffield, Motorpoint Arena
21 Apr: Cardiff, Motorpoint Arena
