Bat Out of Hell

February 26 - March 3, 2019 Des Moines Civic Center

The show has postponed the tour’s current dates and we are actively working with the producers to rebook the show for another date in 2019. We appreciate your understanding while we seek new dates and will follow up with further details.

Experience the thrill of London’s most spectacular musical as Bat Out of Hell brings to life the legendary anthems of Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf, in a critically-acclaimed, award-winning production that combines the magic of a musical, with the immense energy of rock 'n' roll.

Join Strat, the forever young leader of rebellious gang ‘The Lost’, as he falls in love with Raven, the beautiful daughter of the tyrannical ruler of post-apocalyptic Obsidian.  

Featuring Meat Loaf’s iconic hits including I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That), It’s All Coming Back To Me Now and Paradise By The Dashboard Light, “this is a musical production like no other” (The Upcoming).
