Meat Loaf at D.A.R. Constitution Hall, Washington, DC, USA


One my favorite concert stories. Meat Loaf had done VH1 Storytellers and released an album of it, and now was touring it. He and his band sat on stage with giant books that had every song he’d ever done, and if he was asked a question he liked, they’d play that song. The show was more than halfway through when one guy came to the microphone, a dead ringer for Meat Loaf as Eddie from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Meat Loaf saw him, told him to stop and come up to the stage. He talked to the band, who immediately started playing “Hot Patootie”. Meat Loaf and “Eddie” started singing it together, and it was just perfect. Unfortunately the live recording I have cuts out the banter.
