Meat Loaf - Meat Loaf announces Las Vegas residency

Meat Loaf has announced a Las Vegas residency.

The 65-year-old musician will perform 18 dates at the famous Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the famous Strip starting on September 26.

The rocker's RockTellz & CockTails show will consist of a stripped down set of his biggest hits, such as 'I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)', 'Two Out of Three Ain't Bad' and 'Paradise by the Dashboard Light', and the concerts will cover his entire 47-year career.

Meat Loaf cannot wait to shrink his usually massive shows into a smaller setting.

He said: ''I'm thrilled and honoured to headline the first series of RockTellz & CockTails in Las Vegas. I'm excited to offer my fans such a personal experience, one that lets them share in the crazy journey I've been on for the past 47 years.''

RockTellz & CockTails Presents Meat Loaf will be performed every Thursday, Saturday and Tuesday from September 26 to November 5.

Tickets go on sale at 10am (PST) on August 2.

Meat Loaf had to cancel a number of dates on his 'Last at Bat Tour' of the UK earlier this year after experiencing ill health.

The musician-and-actor later admitted he is ''jealous'' of other performers in their 60s who have no apparent health problems and can still bound around the stage in the same way they did when they were younger.

Meat Loaf - who has mobility problems caused by a knee replacement operation and balance issues caused by multiple concussions - said: ''I've had all these concussions and they're now starting to play havoc with my equilibrium and balance. I was upstairs getting dressed earlier and if you'd had a camera on me, you'd be asking, 'How much has that guy had to drink?' That's a problem on stage. I stumble and people think I've been drinking.

''It upsets me and I'm jealous because I see Bruce Springsteen sliding along the stage on his knees and Jagger's still doing it, but I've got 100 pounds on him and that extra weight has a bearing on your bones and joints.''
