OK, so we don’t usually cover much outside of the UK/EIR and maybe a bit of Europe, but this one had to go out based on the newsworthiness of the set…
The Sunset Strip’s favourite sons, Steel Panther, are returning to Australia in May 2018 for a world first run of shows! They are returning to Australian shores with their Sunset Strip Live! Tour, which is All Panther, All Night. Two sets – one set of Steel Panther originals, and one set of Classic Covers! Presented by MJR Presents by Arrangement with United Talent Agency, this is Steel Panther’s third trip out to Australia since 2016 – and it seems like Australia can’t get enough of the raunchy Panther boys from LA!
The Steel Panther boys are coming to Australia to show off how it all started for them – playing venues like The Viper Room in Los Angeles, playing all the best hair metal songs of all time, eventually becoming the Steel Panther everyone loves (Well, maybe not your Grandma. It kind of depends on what Old Folks’ Home she’s in!).
The tour takes the boys to Melbourne’s The Forum on 16th May, Sydney’s Big Top on the 18th, Brisbane’s Eatons Hill on the 20th and finishing in Perth on the 22nd May at the Astor Theatre. Tickets go on sale Wednesday February 28 at 10:00am Local Time at mjrpresents.com.
Steel Panther have been prolific in their output in the past few years, releasing album All You Can Eat in 2014, Live DVD Live from Lexxi’s Mom’s Garage in 2016 and album Lower the Bar in 2017. Their catalogue of hits is unstoppable, featuring hits like “Death to All But Metal”, “Community Property”, “17 Girls in a Row” and “Poontang Boomerang.”
Last time they visited Australian shores, Blunt Mag‘s writer Luke Sutton said that…”…if the decade of neon was anything like Steel Panther make it out to be, then it was one hell of a time. [Steel Panther] have made a pretty solid name for themselves Down Under: their trips are all but annual at this point, with every passing crowd growing vaster, louder, and itchier.”
Don’t miss the raucous, irreverent, all-out hair metal assault on your senses (and probably your genitals) that is Steel Panther’s “Sunset Strip Live” tour this May in Australia!
