According to The Sun “Meat Loaf is concerned he isn’t up to some of the bigger numbers after losing his voice a couple of years ago. He’s been relying on pre-recorded vocal tracks for a while but doesn’t want to face accusations of miming on a huge tour, so is passing the baton on to Caleb, who he’s a big fan of. Instead his involvement will be telling stories of how he met Jim Steinman, who he’s worked with since the Seventies, and other anecdotes. But the singing will be left to Caleb.”

Details surrounding the upcoming tour will be released with the next week.
