Steel Panther has announced two Pennsylvania drive-in concerts in September as part of the “Fast Cars & Loud Guitars Tour.” Performances will be on Sept. 11 at the Starlite Drive In in Pittsburgh and Sept. 12 at the Circle Drive In in Scranton. The band will rock live on stage as the performance is broadcast on the movie screen with the audio available via an outdoor PA system, as well as in everyone’s car via FM transmitter. Ticket information for both drive-in shows can be found at https://bit.ly/PantherTourDates.
The band released the following statement:
“Bring your hot rod and hot dates to the concert event of the weekend. This ain’t your momma’s NASCAR. This is Steel Panther live and out of our cage in Los Angeles. You’re welcome Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, the local government has informed us that it is totally ILLEGAL to attend this concert naked. They blamed Covid; so please STILL wear a mask when you’re around strangers!”
Steel Panther will perform another virtual concert event, “Rockdown in the Lockdown” on Sunday, Aug. 16t from the ultra-sanitized, production-filled, multi-camera Drum Channel Studio at Drum Workshop in Oxnard, California. The show will be live globally at 2 p.m. Los Angeles time.
“Rockdown in the Lockdown” will be slightly different from what fans saw last time. Steel Panther has filmed a series of sketch comedy pieces that will be played throughout the show, giving the virtual experience more depth and laughs. The band again will interact with fans around the globe via a live chat. Tickets for the virtual concert will cost $15, with proceeds from each ticket sold going to benefit a local Los Angeles animal rescue and Live Nation’s Crew Nation Fund (benefiting all touring personnel affected by the COVID-19 pandemic). All fans who purchase tickets to the concert will get access to Steel Panther’s Rockbuster Video Store. The Rockbuster Video Store will be a place where fans can access exclusive content to stream for a period of time. Currently, “The Concert to Save the World,” “Live from Lexxi’s Mom’s Garage” and the black metal video version of “Let’s Get High Tonight” are available with ticket purchase, and more content will be added. Anyone 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 “You Can’t Beat The Meat & Greet” VIP upgrade also is available; it includes access to a virtual one-on-one meet and greet, private video chat with two band members and a screen shot selfie.
