Concert One LTD
The track listing includes many of Meat’s classic tunes, opening up with his most famous Rocky Horror Picture Show moment “Hot Patootie” with a snipped of “Time Warp” included just for fun. Early in the set comes “Bat Out of Hell” and the visuals to this song add to the tunes power. This is one of the highlights of the set. Patti Russo shines during “Anything for Love” and “Paradise by the Dashboard Light.” She is an amazing vocalist, to the point that she overtakes the stage from Meat, which is a very difficult thing to do.
The classic “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad” takes on new life with a very cool instrumental section from Meat’s band, The Neverland Express. The band Meat Loaf has behind him is as impressive as his best vocal performances. They understand the music, the harmonies and the overall impact needed to perform a Meat Loaf concert and they do it well.
The newest edition to the band is twenty year old Ginny “Cool Hand” Luke. Her performance is very inspiring and she brings vibrancy and energy to an already over the top stage.
Guilty Pleasures Tour – Live from Sydney is a winner from beginning to end. It is not just a hit fest as newer tunes, including “Los Angeloser” and “Peace on Earth” are highpoints of the show, proving that Mr. Loaf still has the “it” factor.
