Early in his career, classic rocker Meat Loaf discovered an ally in Cleveland International's Steve Popovich, a guy he's referred to as a fellow "gunslinger" and "road warrior." The late Popovich (who died in 2011) signed him to his label when no one else expressed an interest. Once the label put out Meat's album, Bat Out of Hell, in October of 1977, co-writer Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf had the last laugh.

The theatrical songs that showcased Meat Loaf's larger-than-life operatic voice were met with universal acclaim, and the album went platinum. It's now one of the five top-selling albums of all time (Meat Loaf says that although it hasn't been properly documented, the album was at one point selling 800,000 copies a week). As a result, Meat Loaf always keeps Cleveland on the tour schedule. Fans here love the guy, and he loves the city.



His current tour includes a stop at the Hard Rock Live stage at Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park on March 30. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, January 29. They’re available at the venue box office, Ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster outlets or by phone at 800-745-3000.
