The tour was launched in connection to his latest CD, Hell in a Handbasket(Sony/Legacy) which has generated international press coverage and reviews, including an appearance on NBC’s TheTonight Show with Jay Leno. According to Amazon.com, “music comes no bigger than Meat Loaf. And now, Meat Loaf does it all again with the release of his album Hell in a Handbasket.” Blogcritics.org echoes the review, “at 64, Meat Loaf still has that huge, over-the-top voice, and he uses it to very good effect on Hell in a Handbasket.”
Hell in a Handbasketis Meat Loaf’s most autobiographical album which segues from country and gospel to rock and rap. Featured collaborators include Chuck D, Trace Adkins, Lil Jon and Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath.
While on tour, Meat Loaf will be joined by his acclaimed band, The Neverland Express. Members include guitarist Paul Crook (who served as producer for Hell in a Handbasket), John Miceli (drums, percussion), David Luther (saxophone, vocals), Patti Russo (lead and backing vocals), Randy Flowers (guitars, vocals), Justin Avery (piano, organ, keyboard, vocals), and Danny Miranda (electric and upright bass).
