Award-winning musical Bat Out of Hell will visit Aberdeen’s His Majesty’s Theatre from April 12-16 2022, Aberdeen Performing Arts announced today.

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, which contained the massive hit I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That).

For the stage musical, the legendary and award-winning Jim Steinman incorporated iconic 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, What Part of My Body Hurts the Most and Not Allowed to Love. In Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical, the electrifying rock songs of Mr Steinman propel an epic story of rebellious youth and passion as Strat, the immortal leader of The Lost, has fallen in love with Raven, the beautiful daughter of the tyrannical ruler Falco.

Casting is to be announced.

Aberdeen Performing Arts director of programming and creative projects Ben Torrie said “This will be a high energy show full of classic hits from world class performers and is an excellent addition to our 2022 programme. We are delighted to see our schedule taking shape for next year and this show is sure to be very popular among our audiences.”

Tickets go on sale to Friends of Aberdeen Performing Arts on June 24 and on general sale on June 29.
