Rock legend Meat Loaf coming to Penticton

This June Penticton is going to get the chance to spend An Evening With Meat Loaf as the rock icon brings his tour to the SOEC.

Rock legend Meat Loaf is coming like a bat out of hell to Penticton.

The icon of classic rock is coming to the South Okanagan Events Centre on June 23.

Bringing the heat to 1977’s Bat Out Of Hell, still selling nearly 200,000 copies annually 40 years after its release, followed by three multi-platinum albums and the Grammy-winning single I’d Do Anything for Love, Meat Loaf is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, selling more than 80 million records worldwide.

On April 4 Meat Loaf’s official Facebook page announced a new album Braver Than We Are, in collaboration with Jim Steinman (Bat Out of Hell) releasing in North America on September 16. The album is reportedly “explicit and politically incorrect” according to Meat Loaf’s Facebook page.

Tickets for An Evening With Meat Loaf are $49, $59, $79 and $95 and go on sale April 8 at noon. Tickets can be purchased in person at the Valley First Box Office at the SOEC or the Wine Country Visitor Centre, by phone at 1-877-763-2849 or online at www.ValleyFirstTix.com.
