Meat Loaf to play UPAC

Meat Loaf

Meat Loaf

The Bardavon presents classic rock legend Meat Loaf at the Ulster Performing Arts Center (UPAC) in Kingston on Monday, March 21 at 8 p.m. It is a rare chance to see one of rock’s most outsize theatrical personalities in an intimate theater setting.

Known mostly for the polarizing, Jim Steinman-produced Bat out of Hell (which polarized about 43 million copies worldwide), Meat Loaf has gone back to that trough for several additional helpings: 1993’s multi-platinum Bat out of Hell II: Back into Hell and 2006’s Bat out of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose, which managed platinum in an era when the P-word is not oft uttered.

Tickets for Meat Loaf cost $64 to $119 based on location, and may be purchased at: at the UPAC box office at 601 Broadway in Kingston, (845) 339-6088; the Bardavon box office at 35 Market Street in Poughkeepsie, (845) 473-2072; or via Ticketmaster, (800) 745-3000.
