By on February 22, 2018

Australian Steel Panther fans (fanthers) will be the first in the world to experience Steel Panther’s upcoming Sunset Strip Live! Tour. An exclusive two set show; one set of Steel Panther classics, and the other a set of classic covers, all thanks to MJR Presents in association with United Talent Agency.

Tour dates include 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) via

This will be the band’s third visit out to Australia since 2016. Expect debauchery.

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!).

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!
