Meatloaf in Concert

Sunday night a portion of the family took off and went to see Meatloaf in concert at UNI’s McCloud Center.  Hubby and I have been Meatloaf fans for forever…our girls Kelli and Kalissa have been big fans too.  Our son Karl likes any and everything classic rock so we went to see Meatloaf.  Our daughter Kalissa is ESPECIALLY CRAZY for Meatloaf so she bought herself a VIP ticket, getting her a chance to meet and talk with him.

See Kalissa’s totally holey jeans.  Meatloaf asked her if her mom bought them for her.  She said no, she made me buy them myself.  He said, “You have a good Mom.”  cute..right?

We snapped a picture of us before we left the house.  Kalissa had Meatloaf sign it and hold it while a picture was taken so we could get a “family” picture with Meatloaf.

Kalissa got a great VIP treatment including pictures, time to talk, t-hirts and other fun goodies.  The best perk was a front row center seat.  The rest of us were a few seats further behind.

She got some great pictures….

The gal that sings with him was amazing…

I remember being 17 years old and having Meatloaf’s “Bat out of Hell” album.  I was hiding the album cover as I knew my mom wouldn’t think much of it.  I remember so vividly singing along and trying to write down the lyrics.  I never thought 30 years later I would have five kids, living in Iowa and taking my kiddos to the concert.  We had a fun time and it’s something I honestly will always remember.

We have such a WIDE taste of music in our family….one day we are at a Merle Haggard concert..the next Meatloaf.

  1. My husband just came home from a trip to Mason City. He told me of some of the upcoming concerts one of which was Meatloaf. I do believe y’all get the best concerts!
    I wanted to go with him on this last trip so I could meet you in person, but illness made me stay home. ;( I hope there will be more chances in the future.
    Glad your family had a nice time at the concert.

  2. OMG! I am so jealous! This man has the most powerful voice! I met him several years ago when he was making the movie “Crazy in Alabama” and could not get a word out of my mouth. Can I say “I’d Do Anything for Love” !

  3. How great is that?! We have the same variety in music tastes. I call mine eclectic! :) Everything from John Denver, to Jimmy Buffet, to Merle Haggard, to Sidewalk Prophets, to Jack Johnson, to Ian Tyson, to Journey and lots in between! :) I’ll bet that was a great concert and he looks the same as he did 20…um 30 years ago! :)

    I used to play the Bat out of Hell cd to clean the house to, helped me get through my least favourite chores! My kids grew up listening to all kinds of music and have everything from Johnny Cash to Meatloaf and Queen to LMFAO. Makes car rides with them a blast as we belt out the lyrics and my son tries to hit the high notes for us!
