The cast of stage musical Bat Out of Hell gave Meat Loaf a stunning tribute at their first show since it was announced the rock legend had passed away.

Last week, following the news that iconic rock singer Meat Loaf had died aged 74, the cast of Bat Out Of Hell: The Musical dedicated their performance at the New Wimbledon Theatre on Friday to his life and career.

That night's curtain call has now been unveiled, showing how the cast came together to pay tribute to the late singer.

“He was a huge inspiration to Jim (Steinman), a huge inspiration to this show and a huge inspiration to all of you and all of us!," they said.
