Perry O'Bree rocked out at Bat Out Of Hell's opening

Our #FirstNightTakeover series continues with Perry O'Bree attending the official world premiere (on 20 June 2017) of BAT OUT OF HELL at the London Coliseum. Which rock 'n' roll celebrities did he meet on the red carpet and at the after-party? (Here's a hint. The names include: McFly's Tom Fletcher, Craig Revel Horwood, Steps' Lisa Scott Lee and Faye Tozer, Arlene Phillips, Richard Fleeshman, Nathan Amzi and, well, tons of the cast and creatives!)

Composer Jim Steinman has been developing the new musical for years based on the trilogy of albums: Bat Out Of Hell, Bat Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell and Bat Out Of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose. The original album sold over 50 million copies worldwide and included the hits: You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth, Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad and Paradise By The Dashboard Light. 

In this romantic adventure about rebellious youth and passionate love against the backdrop of a post-cataclysmic city, Strat has fallen in love with Raven, the daughter of the despotic Falco. Will true love prevail?
