May 2020 will see the wildest, wettest, dirtiest, hardest, heaviest most rocking heavy metal tour to hit Australian shores ever in the history of anything ever. MJR Presents are bringing Steel Panther to Australia once again for a Heavy Metal Party the likes of which have never been seen by human eyes and they are bringing none other than their US mates Sevendust along for the party! This tour also marks the largest venues that Steel Panther will have played in Australia due to growing demand every time they return down under. MJR Presents has increased the venue size so EVERYBODY gets to FEEL THE STEEL because HEAVY METAL RULES.
The ‘HEAVY METAL RULES TOUR’ hits Australian soil after a brief stop in New Zealand sans Sevendust on Friday 22nd May at Margaret Court Arena, Melbourne, then on to Brisbane at Eaton’s Hill on Saturday 23rd May, then on to Hordern Pavilion in Sydney on Sunday 24th May and then finishing in Newcastle on Tuesday 26th May at NEX.
For the uninitiated, Steel Panther was formed in 2000 and is comprised of Michael Starr (lead singer), Satchel (guitarist), Lexxi Foxx (bass) and Stix Zadinia (drums). Hailing from Los Angeles, the epicenter for rock n’ roll in all its debauchery and glamour, Steel Panther has established themselves as the world’s premier party band, melding hard rock virtuosity with parody and criminally good looks. Steel Panther is a global phenomenon with four full-length albums, touring across the world, platinum-level YouTube status and a #13 debut for the new album Heavy Metal Rules on the ARIA charts.
Rolling Stone avowed, “There’s a reason Steel Panther have transcended their origins as a cover band playing the Sunset Strip,” while Metal Sucks declared, “Steel Panther’s concept is genius…their songwriting is…preposterously snappy – and relatable.”
Along for the ride are Sevendust, who were last here in 2019 on their tour celebrating the 2018 album ‘All I See is War’. While demonstrating their musical mastery accumulated over more than 25 years as a band and simultaneously destroying all expectations for their live show, Sevendust show no signs of slowing down. To this day, the connection between fans and the GRAMMY® Award-nominated gold-certified hard rock outfit only grows stronger.
Tickets for this massively epic tour go on pre-sale at 9:00am Local Time Wednesday March 11 at mjrpresents.com, and then on general sale Wednesday March 11 at 10:00am local time.
