Steel Panther is currently gearing up for their 2nd World Tour of 2012. The tour kicks off in Auckland, NZ, on October 2nd, and the 25+ city trek runs through mid-November and makes stops in major markets all over Europe and Australia including Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney, Perth, Helsinki, Amsterdam, Manchester, Paris, Zurich and Bristol before wrapping up in London on November 15th.
Steel Panther was, for a long time, rock's best-kept secret: a cult legend on the LA scene. But in recent years due to the success of their albums (both debuted at #1 on the Billboard Comedy Album Charts) and live shows, the band has enjoyed huge acclaim from fans and peers alike. At sold-out shows in Hollywood and Las Vegas, Steel Panther has been joined on stage by rock and roll icons such as Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Paul Stanley of KISS, Corey Taylor of Slipknot, Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine/Audioslave, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park and Green Day to name a few.
