Veteran rocker Meat Loaf has put retirement on hold to sign up for a residency in Las Vegas.

The “Bat Out of Hell” hitmaker is heading to the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino for an 18-date stint, which is scheduled to kick off on Sept. 26.

Meat Loaf will play stripped-down versions of his greatest hits, and insists he can’t wait to perform for the crowds in Sin City.

He says, “I’m thrilled and honoured to headline the first series of RockTellz & Cocktails in Las Vegas. I’m excited to offer my fans such a personal experience, one that lets them share in the crazy journey I have been on.”

Meat Loaf, 65, follows in the footsteps of Sir Elton John, Rod Stewart, Celine Dion and Shania Twain, who have all staged Las Vegas residencies.

The rocker previously declared his recent U.K. tour was to be his final run of gigs after struggling to regain his fitness following knee surgery last year.
