Calling it the “Concert to Save the World,” Steel Panther will live stream a performance on Sunday, June 7, abiding by social distancing (band members will be 6 feet away from each other), from a sanitized, undisclosed location in Los Angeles that will feature full stage production and use multiple cameras. The concert will be streamed live at www.steelpantherrocks.com at 2 p.m. Los Angeles time, 5 p.m. New York City time, 10 p.m. London time, 11 p.m. Berlin time, 5 a.m. (Monday morning) Hong Kong time and 7 a.m. (Monday morning) Sydney time. The band will take breaks during the show and interact with the fans live around the globe.
Tickets for the virtual concert will cost $15 each, with proceeds from each ticket sold going to benefit Heavenly Pets Animal Rescue (the location that hosted the band’s recently announced All Day Kitty Cam) and Live Nation’s Crew Nation Fund (benefiting all touring personnel affected by the COVID-19 pandemic). Any fan who has purchased the band’s latest effect pedal, the Butthole Burner, prior to the concert will get a free ticket to the event. The band also will give away three pedals live during the event, as well as a guitar and merchandise from longtime sponsor Monster Energy including a year’s supply of Monster, a Jambox, skateboard and other items.
“This concert is guaranteed to, at the very least, have our microphones plugged in and facing the right direction,” the band said. “We feel like heavy metal hasn’t been represented in any recent broadcasts. It is time to bring spandex and hairspray back to the forefront and ripping guitar solos into your living rooms. Additionally, Steel Panther would like to inform you that it is totally legal to attend this concert naked!”
