TORONTO (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) —
Meat Loaf's Bat Out Of Hell III premiere performance at Toronto's Elgin Theatre on November 4 sold out in just minutes. "This was one of the hottest tickets I have ever put on sale in Toronto," says House of Blues Canada promoter Emmanual Patterson, "and after just three minutes, we had none left to sell for the momentous return of Bat Out Of Hell."
"I was totally blown away by the immediate impact that the announcement of this performance solicited from the diehard Bat Out Of Hell fans," adds Patterson. "The epic new song and cinematic video have obviously struck a new chord in the hearts of his multi-generational audience and clearly demonstrate that Bat Out Of Hell continues to endure as rock's most epic adventure."
The quick sell-out of this one-night-only event follows on the heels of Meat Loaf's London Royal Albert Hall show on October 16, which also sold out in just a few minutes as well when it went on sale in September.
