Commodore Ballroom

March 15th, 2018



VANCOUVER – 

Selling out the Commodore Ballroom three nights in a row is a feat on its own, but for a hair metal band to do so in 2018 is absolutely unheard of. Such the case is unusual, unless you’re Steel Panther, a parody glam metal band out of LA known for their politically incorrect albeit hilarious lyrics.

Taking on ridiculous personas vocalist Ralph Saenz (“Michael Starr”), drummer Darren Leader (“Stix Zadinia”), bassist Travis Haley (“Lexxi Foxx”) and guitarist Russ Parrish (“Satchel”) consistently reminded the audience that no topic is out-of-bounds in terms of humour. Between the overt racism and misogyny, Steel Panther seems to avoid any major controversy due to being extremely self-aware.

Known for interacting with the crowd and being overtly over-the-top, some highlights of the night included: having all the band members court a concertgoer on stage via song, an almost ten-minute guitar solo and having those of the female persuasion flood the stage for track “17 Girls in a Row.”

Rowdy, rambunctious and theatrical are adjectives one would use to describe a Steel Panther show – if you’re easily offended, it’s probably in your best interest not to attend. For those who can find humour in almost anything, you’re guaranteed to have a blast regardless of your musical inclinations and truly Feel the Steel.
