Last May, I saw Steel Panther for the first time. It was a nostalgic trip back to 80s hair metal complete with many audience members either in costume or in their retro outfits, flashing girls, lots of laughs and lots of devil horns in the air. Check out my thoughts and pics from last time.

As far as my thoughts go, not much changed on their return trip through Toronto on the All You Can Eat tour. They pulled their tour bus into the renovated Sound Academy for another onslaught of metal. While I'm thinking of the renovation, what exactly was renovated? I didn't see anything different.

There were some new editions to the set to keep it interesting. The hair solo is not to be missed, and they followed it up with "17 Girls" and "Gloryhole" when they invited at least 17 girls from the audience on stage to pout and preen. As my friend said, it is kind of surprising that in this age of the internet, social media, and cameras on every phone, girls are still willing to get up on stage, or on their boyfriends' shoulders, and expose themselves.

The acoustic section was cool and featured their viral hit "Kanye". The more I absorb the Steel Panther philosophy, the more I agree with these guys.

They brought out fellow LA native Joey Fatone from NSYNC to sing on the encore tunes of "Community Property" and "Party All Day (Fuck All Night)". Overall, a fun night at the Steel Panther show. Just what everyone expected.

Check out some of my personal faves from their set. Hope I don't really have to mention that this stuff's NSFW.

Show opener "Pussywhipped". Check out the new video.


"Party Like Tomorrow Is The End Of The World"


"Fat Girl (thar she blows)"


"17 Girls"


 "Gloryhole"


"Kanye"


And of course, the main set closer, and the song that once again I'd been waiting for all night, "Death To All But Metal" from Feel The Steel. The clip features the incomparable Sarah Silverman.


Encore, with NSYNC's Joey Fantone, "Community Property" and "Party All Day (Fuck All Night)"
