REMEMBER JONES: "BAT OUT OF HELL" Returns to Axelrod PAC and MORE
REMEMBER JONES RETURNS WITH MEAT LOAF’S "BAT OUT OF HELL"
Three Shows Only
“Bat Out of Hell,” released in 1977, remains one of the top-selling albums of all-time. Celebrating the sound of Meat Loaf and the music of Jim Steinman, the Jersey Shore’s own “soul sensation” Remember Jones presents BAT OUT OF HELL LIVE, the entire album and MORE, backed by his 12-piece band and very special guests.
The iconic Meat Loaf album—43 million albums sold and counting—became the soundtrack for the late 1970s and 1980s and defined a proud generation of rock and roll fans. Three of its three top-charting hits. “Paradise by the Dashboard Light,” “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad” and “Bat Out of Hell” have endured as ubiquitous, in-demand party music for five decades.
And yet, the question remains:
“On a hot summer night, would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?”
