The show features several of the album’s iconic songs, including “You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth,” “I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That),” and “Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad,” as well as two previously unreleased songs: “What Part of My Body Hurts the Most” and “Not Allowed to Love.”
