Meatloaf

As unlikely as it seems, some “Rock and Roll Dreams Come Through,” even ridiculous longshots. When Marvin Lee Aday, known to the world as Meat Loaf, comes bursting out of the deep-freeze on his motorcycle singing “Hot Patootie – Bless My Soul” in 1975's The Rocky Horror Picture Show, the moment seems especially random (even by TRHPS standards) but the song could practically serve as an overture for the Loaf's similarly unexpected career as a rock star. From the revving engine to the operatic-unto-absurdity vocals celebrating old-timey rock 'n' roll, “Patootie” is of a piece with his signature work 1977's Bat Out of Hell. Platinum 14 times over, the album serves up extra-large portions of r'n'r comfort food like “Paradise by the Dashboard Light,” that — despite the infamously chilly initial response from nay-saying critics and industry insiders – fans worldwide have been wolfing down ever since. $39.50-$250, 7:30pm, Mon., Oct. 26, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624, tobincenter.org
