The atmosphere is electric as the man they call Meat Loaf takes to the stage but the big question is, will this really be the last time he performs in Scotland?

The Last At Bat shows are being billed as Meat's final tour but, as fans of a plethora of big names will know, such claims often have to be taken with a pinch of salt.

However, Meat Loaf's decision to give fans what they want by playing a greatest hits set followed by Bat Out Of Hell, the third best-selling album of all time, in its entirety suggest he means business.

Despite at times struggling with the Secc's infamous sound issues, Meat Loaf soon finds his stride and has his enthralled audience hanging on his every gesture, note and utterance.

Renditions of Objects in the Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Are and Dead Ringer for Love are particular crowd pleasers but they are just build-up for the main event.

After a short interlude it's the moment everyone's been waiting for and as Bat Out Of Hell begins it's clear MeatLoaf, complete with red handkerchief and giant inflatable bat, has the crowd eating out of his hand.

The album's layers of intricate guitars, pounding drums and operatics sound as crisp as ever and are performed to near perfection while Mr Loaf's stage antics show he's determined to go out on top.

As a tearful Meat launches into For Crying Out Loud followed by a jubilant encore including I Would Do Anything for Love (but I Won't Do That) there is a sense of sadness, but if this is his final Scottish show then it was a fantastic way to end.
