Glam metal band Steel Panther rocked an enthusiastic crowd of all ages at the Irving Plaza in New York City last night. The band is finishing up the last leg of their US tour in support of their newly released album, All You Can Eat. While the show is not entirely a family event, a vast amount of people showed up for a guaranteed fun time.
With the band’s motto being ‘sex, drugs, and rock n roll’, it’s no surprise that most of the band’s set is centered on edgy 80’s guitar solo’s, sexual humor, and high energy. The California rockers sported the stereotypical eighties fashion with bright colors, spandex, and big hair being sure to encourage the fans to rock out with them. A very tight set incorporated with hilarious on stage conversations between band members ensured not only a good laugh but a great show as well.
Lead singer, Michael Starr is surely a crowd pleaser coming out with a huge smile while flirting with the many girls and women in the front row and beyond throughout the night. Every member of the band truly works hard to provide a full out experience of what a rock show should be like.
Some lucky fans were even brought on stage to join the band during “Gloryhole” with some being awarded backstage passes. A special woman who flew all the way from Japan got a cool moment on stage as a reward for being such a huge, loyal fan. While the fan band interaction was at a high, a stand out part of the show was a powerful extended guitar solo by Satchel that not only showed what a precise guitarist he is, but proved the band was not just all talk.
Much to the surprise of the crowd, the band then changed up the setlist from the tour a bit by throwing in a performance of “Stripper Girl” which has become a rarity in recent years. The show was ended on a high with two of Steel Panther’s biggest hits, “Community Property” and “Party All Day (Fuck All Night)”.
Centered around the band’s crazy antics, an entertaining set was performed to the loud and proud heavy metal fans.
