Meat Loaf - Meat Leaf To Quit Touring Next Year

Veteran rocker Meat Loaf is hanging up his microphone next year (13) after announcing his next tour will be his last.

The I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That) hitmaker will kick off Meat Loaf - The Farewell Tour in the U.K. next spring (13) by playing his hit 1977 album Bat Out of Hell in its entirety at each stop.

In a post on Facebook.com, the Grammy winner writes, "I know the fans will enjoy the show as much as I enjoyed putting it together."

It is not yet known if the 65 year old, who battled vocal issues last year (11), will add other locations to his trek, which will currently begin in Newcastle, England on 5 April (13) and end in Cardiff, Wales on 21 April (13).

The news will likely come as a surprise to fans - the artist has recently admitted he'd rather die on stage than quit performing, telling Cnn, "I go out on the stage as if it's the last thing I'll ever do. And that's what I've always said - If I'm going out, I'm going out on stage."
