A Whispered Whisper & Racy Rumor today as Meat Loaf resumes a run of 28 shows starting tonight at Planet Hollywood is that ticket sales are so strong through April 8, he will return for a third run this summer — and if that goes well, then a fourth run in the fall.

He’s updated his “Rocktellz & Cocktails” show at Planet Hollywood Showroom, but be assured that his biggest hits “I Would Do Anything for Love,” plus, “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” from “Bat Out of Hell,” the fifth bestselling album of all time, are still on the setlist.

The high-energy production is a theatrical thriller with music, hit songs and his own intimate stories of the highs and lows of show business, including behind-the-scenes secrets from “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.”

His $400 after-show meet-and-greet gets fans souvenir photos, a red scarf and the opportunity to swap iPad technology stories.

His debut fall run raised more than $10,500 for Meat Loaf to donate to the Grammy Foundation’s Signature Schools Community Award program to benefit high school music programs here in Las Vegas.
