Steel Panther @ House of Blues Anaheim – 08/19/2017
House of Blues Anaheim “Lowered the Bar” Saturday night August 19 with a sold out Steel Panther show. LA’s bad boys of hair metal played their first show at the new House of Blues Anaheim and as expected the house was packed with hardly any place to stand. The show’s capacity was reminiscent of any given Monday night at House of Blues Hollywood during the bands long standing residency before the venue was shutdown.
Steel Panther is currently touring to support their fourth studio release Lower the Bar and the album has done anything but lower the bar. In fact the band has raised the bar as it contains 11 tracks of the grittiest, filthiest work the band has ever written.
This show at the House of Blues show falls in the middle of a short residency run at The Roxy in Hollywood and House of Blues in Las Vegas. As the lights dimmed, the classic roar of the Panther came over the PA as the curtain raised. The band kicked into “Eyes of a Panther” full throttle. The next hour and a half was classic Steel Panther shenanigans and debauchery. From Satchels guitar solo to seventeen girls on stage for “Seventeen Girls in a Row”, Steel Panther did not disappoint.
As Steel Panther wraps up the last few shows in Southern California and Las Vegas, they prepare to hit the road with Stone Sour this fall. They will also be making some appearances at a few big festivals across the country like Houston Open Air Festival, Monster Energy Aftershock Festival, Louder than Life Music festival just to name a few.

Supporting Steel Panther at House of Blue was Dutch-American Rock band Neptune Blue.
