Steel Panther Australian Tour 2012 Adds More Dates, Changes Venues

It took 13 minutes for STEEL PANTHER to completely sellout their Melbourne show at The Palace. The show moved to up to Festival Hall with nearly 3 times the capacity and sold out again!

Shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide (YES! Adelaide!) were not far behind in the expediency with which “ticket allocations” were “exhausted” and the flood of e-grief that poured into the promoter and band members’ inboxes.

So when we tell you, Sydney & Adelaide fans, that the band have decided to give their late buying fans a 2nd and final chance, we do so with caution. Tickets are limited. STEEL PANTHER’s pulling power on the other hand seems limitless. Don’t fuck around. There won’t be another chance.

Perth fans please note your show has moved a day forward and all tickets remain valid.

In case you’ve missed the Steel Panther train, let us paint a picture of what a show of theirs is like. In front of you on the stage is one of the hardest-working, hardest-partying, ass-kickinest bands LA has seen since the 80s glory days of the Sunset Strip.

Also on that stage are some slammin’ hot LA ladies with their boobs out. One of them is being encouraged to lay down on her back and show the crowd whether her boobs stay put or whether gravity forces them to move away from each other and make her chest look “like a hammerhead shark.”

Welcome to Steel Panther, a band with song names like “Asian Hooker,” “Death To All But Metal” and “The Shocker”, who have graduated from the hottest cover band since Van Halen’s early days, to balls out rock n roll legends.

Not that everybody gets the joke. The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) in the UK banned the artwork for their new album Balls Out for being ‘overtly sexual’, after receiving numerous complaints, including from Imkaan, a charity which represents women from ethnic backgrounds who have been victims of abuse and violence.

But just in case you hadn’t already figured it out, Michael Starr, Satchel, Stix Zadinia and Lexxi Foxxx all have their tongues planted firmly in their cheeks – if not down some groupies throat.

“It’s funny because people ask me “Can you play any of these songs for kids?” like if I’m in line at the airport and someone says “What band are you in?” and I say “Steel Panther,” they go “Oh I’ve heard of you guys.”, said drummer Stix Zadinia to Tone Deaf earlier this year.

“I tell them to check it out online but not in front of little kids, because if you’ve got a five-year-old and they hear “I’m gonna stick my head inside your pussy and lick your butthole from inside,” that’s not something you want to teach your five-year-old. When they’re nine, that’s a whole different ballgame.”
