After two long years of on-again, off-again, more on-again, more off-again announcements, the world's most beloved big haired heavy metal outfit Steel Panther have officially confirmed new dates for what is set to be the wildest, wettest, dirtiest, hardest, heaviest most rocking heavy metal tour to land in Australia.
Having previously announced shows for 2020, and then 2021, Steel Panthers forthcoming Australian tour will now take place in October 2022, and will also feature support from legendary Victorian outfit Airbourne, who will be replacing Sevendust.
“After blazing through Europe and rocking 100,000 strong soldout crowds together at gargantuan festivals like Hellfest, and Download, we’re finally bringing the mega Hard Rock & Heavy Metal party of the year down to Oz! If you love POWER CHORDS, POWER DRINKING, and POWER ROCKING then YOU ARE INVITED to the Airbourne and Steel Panther POWER PARTY!! Rock you HARD in ROCKTOBER!!” - Airbourne
In addition to hitting massive venues across the country with the Victorian band, Airbourne Steel Panther will also be turning their Brisbane show into a mini-festival, featuring Dead Letter Circus, Devilskin, Lagerstein, and Bare Bones!
The ‘HEAPS & LOADS’ tour marks the largest venue that Steel Panther will have ever played in Australia. Due to growing demand every time they return down under, mixed with countless rave reviews, the Californian outfit will be landing in Newcastle, Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne for a handful of enormous shows!
For the uninitiated, Steel Panther was formed in 2000 and is comprised of Michael Starr (lead singer), Satchel (guitarist), and Stix Zadinia (drums). Hailing from Los Angeles, the epicenter for rock n’ roll in all its debauchery and glamour, Steel Panther has established themselves as the world’s premier party band, melding hard rock virtuosity with parody and criminally good looks. Steel Panther is a global phenomenon with five full-length albums, touring across the world, platinum-level YouTube status, and a #13 debut for the latest album Heavy Metal Rules on the ARIA charts.
Rolling Stone avowed, "There’s a reason Steel Panther have transcended their origins as a cover band playing the Sunset Strip," while Metal Sucks declared, "Steel Panther’s concept is genius...their songwriting is...preposterously snappy – and relatable."
