Bat Out Of Hell

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Meat Loaf’s 1977 album ‘Bat Out Of Hell’ is being made into a musical to mark its fortieth anniversary, which figures. The record’s writer Jim Steinman is scripting the stage show, which is set to open in Manchester. Meat Loaf himself is seemingly not involved.

• Sia has released a new track, ‘The Greatest’, featuring Kendrick Lamar. If you’d prefer to hear it without Kendrick for some reason, here’s the video.

• Craig David has shared the video for new single ‘Ain’t Giving Up’, so you can stop worrying about that now.

• Beyonce has postponed a show in New York tonight after been told by doctors to rest her voice. The performance at MetLife Stadium will now take place on 7 Oct.

• Green Day have announced three UK shows for next February. They will play Leeds’ First Direct Arena on 5 Feb, the Manchester Arena on 6 Feb, and then the O2 Arena in London on 8 Feb. Tickets on sale on Friday.

• High Contrast will headline Together Halloween at Brixton Academy on 28 Oct. Also on that bill are Sigma, Sub Focus, Camo & Krooked, Dimension, 1991 and a Pendulum DJ set.
