Meat Loaf’s Last Performance

Meat Loaf’s Last Performance | Society Of Rock Videos

The late Meat Loaf took a multi-year hiatus from public performing due to a series of back surgeries, but had his comeback performances prior to his death on January 20.

In March 2021, Meat Loaf appeared on stage at the Redneck Riviera, the Lower Broadway bar founded by country singer John Rich. He began with a few impromptu lines of his 1993 hit song “I’d Do Anything For Love” and surprised the audience with an extended rendition of Chuck Berry classic “Johnny B. Goode” alongside Rich and “The Voice” alum Taryn Papa.

The legendary singer’s last live performance before his death was during last September 2021 on Huckabee, the Hendersonville-based TBN talk show hosted by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. Followed by days before Christmas, Meat Loaf crashed a holiday show hosted by Nashville staple Sixwire at local club 3rd and Lindsley.

Meat Loaf told the stories from his humble beginning in the music industry and performed three songs on Huckabee. One of them was “Out of the Frying Pan (And Into the Fire)” which he dedicated to his late friend and frequent collaborator Jim Steinman, who died in April 2021. He also sang “Los Angeloser” and “Mercury Blues.” It was the first time all three songs were performed since 2016.
