Bat Out of Hell: Incredible drone footage shows dozens of Harley-Davidsons roaring through Bristol city centre

Parade honoured ‘Bat out of Hell’ opening night

Motorbike fans in Bristol were in for a treat as a parade of more than 80 Harley-Davidsons rolled into the city this week.

The bikers descended to mark the opening night of new Meat Loaf musical ‘Bat out of Hell’ at the Bristol Hippodrome on Tuesday (August 9).

The bikes roar down College Green and into the Centre.

The bikers were made up of members of the Great Western Chapter and Bridgwater Chapter - and Hippodrome staff said they ‘couldn’t have been lovelier’.

They rode down College Green before parking at the fountains in the Centre, revving their engines in unison as hundreds of spectators gathered on the pavements and cheered.


Hundreds of delighted spectators gathered to watch.

They did two revs, one at 7pm and another at 7.15pm, before the show began.

Bat out of Hell, which brings together the legendary hits of Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf, runs at the Hippdrome until August 20.
