They’re also working on a Las Vegas production, set for a four week residency, called Rocktails and Cocktails, which starts like an 1960s dance revue before Meat busts out from his secret seat in the audience to call a halt to the Broadway feel and get the rock show started.
We can absolutely visualize that opening and think he'd be a perfect fit for The Strip. The question is where? And, how along are these plans? We're very familiar with this British newspaper and believe reporter Sarah Walters is accurately quoting Mr. Loaf. But, beyond this quote, we can't find any other confirmation. His European tour doesn't end until May 17. We don't expect him to be here on May 18. May 19 might be another story.
Meat Loaf has performed in Las Vegas in recent years and, on a recent album "Hang Cool Teddy Bear," he even included a fictional narrative called "Elvis in Vegas." The lyrics include the repeated line, "I saw Elvis in Vegas." Maybe Meat Loaf needs to perch his residency at LVH to complete the circle.
