New Brunswick, NJ —State Theatre presents MEAT LOAF in concert as part of his Mad Mad World Tour 2012 on Thursday, July 19, 2012 at 8pm. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, April 13, 2012 at 9am.Tickets range from $55-155.
Iconic singer MEAT LOAF has announced the first round of dates for his upcoming Mad Mad World Tour 2012 in connection with his newly released album HELL IN A HANDBASKET (Sony/Legacy). The trek kicks off in the city of Austin, TX June 22 and runs through August 2, including his stop in New Brunswick on July 19.
For this tour, MEAT LOAF says, “People who come to Meat Loaf shows know what to expect. They know they’re going to get full-on energy with the best rock ‘n’ roll band in the world. That’s not an opinion. That’s the truth.” Asked specifically what makes for a good show, he says, “Well, a great play can be done with a table, a light, and four chairs. Great shows are about people. You don’t want to put up a wall with laser lights, production, and dancers. It’s really about going out there and putting on the show of these people’s lives without all of the bells and whistles.”
Joining MEAT LOAF onstage will be his longtime band The Neverland Express: guitarist Paul Crook (who also produced the HELL IN A HANDBASKET album), John Miceli (drums, percussion), Patti Russo (lead and backing vocals), Randy Flowers (guitars, vocals), David Luther (saxophone, vocals) Justin Avery (piano, organ, keyboard, vocals), Danny Miranda (electric and upright bass), and Ginny Luke (violin, vocals).
MEAT LOAF recently performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, where he sang “The Giving Tree” from HELL IN A HANDBASKET. “It’s is the most personal record I’ve ever made,” said MEAT LOAF. “It’s really the first record I’ve ever put out about how I feel about life and how I feel about what’s going on at the moment.” The album, produced by Paul Crook, is an expression of life’s metaphors, driven by excellent musicianship, and of course, the passionate vocals ofMEAT LOAF. “Making this album was a great experience,” said MEAT LOAF, “and I hope my fans enjoy hearing it as much as I did making it.”
MEAT LOAF—whose 1977 breakout album Bat Out Of Hell defined the arena rock genre and remains as one of the world’s five top-selling albums of all-time, with more than 43 million copies sold to date—is excited about HELL IN A HANDBASKET. It’s a thematic record that easily crosses any number of genres, featuring such unlikely contributors as rappers Chuck D and Lil Jon, country star Trace Adkins, and Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath.
