Steel Panther Go ‘Balls Out’


It is one thing to be a talented musician or comedian, but it is something else completely to be both at the same time. Steel Panther blurs that line between comedy and music with their live performances and the result is an amazing night of heavy metal mixed with lots of laughter. Don’t let their comical and/or racy lyrics fool you though. The members of Steel Panther are talented, possibly even more talented than the 80’s bands that they are embodying with their stage personas. The band brought their “STD Tour” or “Spreading the Disease Tour” to the Sherman Theater this past Friday night which marked the band’s first time in Stroudsburg. The crowd was getting anxious when the house lights went dim and the band’s intro, “In the Future,” began to play through the venue speakers. As it ended the amps kicked on and Steel Panther began the best night of heavy metal the Sherman Theater has ever, kicking it off with “Supersonic Sex Machine” and quick transition into “Tomorrow Night.” (Continued Below)


After the first two songs, the band took some time to introduce themselves to the audience in a truly hilarious fashion. For most bands introductions take just a few seconds to do, Steel Panther‘s lengthy introductions of lead singer Michael Starr, guitarist Satchel, bassist Lexxi Foxx, and drummer Stix Zadinia, were so great and funny that no one cared how long they took or if they would ever end The rest of the night followed a pattern of playing of a few songs, have a little comical batter, bring some girls on stage to show their boobs and of course picking on a few audience members (my favorite was the calling out of a fan wearing a RUSH shirt.) After the night was over, it was safe to say that the band delivered one of the best shows the Sherman Theater has ever booked and I hope the band returns in the future to Stroudsburg with another dose of heavy metal comedy.

Sight of Sound Magazine‘s exclusive photos are posted below, along with the setlist from the show. If you get offended easily by sexist jokes, 80’s stereotypes, or if you just hate having a good time then I wouldn’t recommend that you go to see Steel Panther. But for everyone out there that likes to have a good time or wants to experience the glory of an 80’s glam metal show, I strongly recommend that you purchase tickets today for a date on the “STD Tour.” And always remember, Death to ALL but Metal!
