BAT OUT OF HELL, THE GIRLS & SCHOOL of ROCK
Thursday 15 June 2017
One third of our coach had BEST matinee performance seats at the Coliseum Theatre for Jim Steinman’s epic rock and roll theatrical Meatloaf fantasy – BAT OUT OF HELL, whilst the other two-thirds enjoyed performances of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s SCHOOL OF ROCK at the New London Theatre, Drury Lane and Gary Barlow/Tim Firth’s, THE GIRLS at the Phoenix Theatre, Charing Cross Road.
Bat Out of Hell was a breath-taking new musical of teenage love, youthful rebellion and living the rock’n’roll dream. This high-octane adventure tore through 17 of Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf’s greatest hits including – I’d Do Anything for Love, Paradise by the Dashboard Light, You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night), Dead Ringer For Love, Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad, Bat Out of Hell and more…… each one bringing back years of memories to the mixed-age audience.
The inspiration for one of the most iconic and successful albums in history, was a full throttle musical tale. Featuring Meat Loaf’s greatest hits, this high octane musical adventure directed by Jay Scheib, was playing for a very limited season at the London Coliseum and we were lucky enough to see it before moving to Europe.
Story: Join the eternally young Strat and his wild gang, The Lost, as they roam the streets of Obsidian, a post-apocalyptic Manhattan, ruled by the wicked and tyrannical Falco. When Strat first sets eyes on Falco’s daughter, Raven, who has been locked away in the palace towers, he sets out to rescue her from her evil father’s clutches in a full throttle tale of teenage love, youthful rebellion and living
BAT OUT OF HELL THE MUSICAL was lively and memorable. The singing was superb and the dancing so energetic, it was exhausting just watching!
Performing in London June – October 2017

Hi Lin. Thanks for a great, well-organised introduction to your excursions! Anyone would think you had had lots of practice! Looking forward to my next one, plus the bonus of getting my Facebook prize – 1,000 Places to See Before you Die!Lesley Love-Williams Gosport
We so enjoyed ourselves on Tuesday Lin, and it was a “mystery” right up until 3pm – well done. I’m so glad I found Solent Events. It’s so much more fun going with other like-minded people & takes the responsibility out of driving.Maureen Colyer, Fareham
Thank you very much for a lovely day in London. I thoroughly enjoyed the show and it also gave me a chance to catch up with Val!
All the hard work you put in to the organising these theatre trips ensuring they are a success is much appreciated and to see the wonderful lights was the icing on the cake. Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year. Judy x
