THE female lead vocalist on Meat Loaf’s hit duet I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That) is performing in the region as part of a tribute act.

Newcastle-born Lorraine Crosby topped the charts the world over in the early 90s alongside the American superstar.

Now the singer is joining forces with Meat Loaf tribute performer, Steve Steinman, in a brand new production featuring over 25 of his greatest hits.

The pair will play the Empire Theatre in Consett on March 14 at 7.30pm in a show set to have audiences on their feet dancing to favourites such as Anything For Love, Bat Out Of Hell, Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth, Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad and Total Eclipse Of The Heart.

Theatre spokeswoman Nicola Dailly said: “Steve is one of the best tribute acts there is and now that Meat Loaf himself has stopped touring, is the closest audiences can get to the seeing the real thing.”

Tickets for Anything For Love, priced at £28, are available to book by visiting or calling 03000-262-400.
