Meat Loaf is to play a "final goodbye" to fans by performing his epic hit album Bat Out Of Hell in full for the first time at a series of UK shows.

The rock veteran will play arena gigs in April as part of his Last At Bat tour, featuring a set of greatest hits as well as the classic 1977 album which made him a global star.

Meat Loaf, 65, previously announced he was retiring five years ago but continued to perform.

The dates were announced as his chance to "bid a final goodbye to his fans", and a publicist said they understood this was going to be his last tour.

The first act of the show will feature hits such as Dead Ringer For Love, while the second act will be made up of the seven songs from Bat Out Of Hell, one of the biggest selling albums of all time.

The singer said: "I know the fans will enjoy the show as much as I enjoyed putting it together."

The tour begins at Newcastle Arena on April 5, then calls at Glasgow SECC (April 7), London's O2 Arena (10), Birmingham's LG Arena (12), Nottingham's Capital FM Arena (14), Manchester Arena (17), Sheffield's Motorpoint Arena (19) and ends at Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena (21).

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
