Singer Meat Loaf was gearing up for a major comeback. In one of his heartbreaking last social media posts, he shared via Facebook on November 22, 2021 that he was working on a new album of 48 tracks, including seven new originals and songs that span his legendary career from the ’70s to 2000s. He assured fans he had “some form [of] life” back after four back surgeries and excitedly planned to go on tour. “Also will be doing shows everywhere (well when can get in). They will be as good as always, (if you like them before) Just different and who knows maybe better,” the post revealed.
Meat Loaf also shared on Facebook on November 29, 2021 that he would be making his return to the screen in his new reality TV series. He had hoped to start filming in March and revealed he was back on Cameo. The show was set to be a reality dating competition called “I’d Do Anything for Love…But I Won’t Do That,” based on the title of his hit song, and would see couples compete in “absurd and sometimes frightening physical contests” all set to live music, per Deadline. “It will be amazing. Well, if you like music with great singing, challenge Games, and a little “Fear Factor” thrown in. You will Love it!!” Meat Loaf wrote on Facebook.
Given all of his future plans, it makes the news of his death all that more tragic.
