Meat Loaf: Comfort Food or Just too Salty?

Love him or hate him, Meat Loaf is still cookin’. The well-seasoned Bat out of Hell has put out oodles of records (including his early stuff on Motown: Stoney & Meatloaf – What You See is What You Get), starred on stage in the musical Hair, and kicked out a few movie roles: the most infamous being Eddie in Rocky Horror Picture Show and “Bob” the big tittied, big hearted combatant in Fight Club.

But with Meat Loaf, it always comes back to the live rock show. His theatrical blend of glam guitar riffs, Broadway-friendly piano accompaniment, and exceptionally ruffled tuxedo shirts is as unique to him as his quivering jowls and deep-set eyes. When you check Mr. Loaf out tonight at Mizner Park Amphitheater (590 Plaza Real, Boca Raton), sample his classic blend of rock ´n’ show tunes while you enjoy a pleasant evening under the stars. Tickets cost $45 to $75. Call 561-966-3309, or visit
