When California glam rockers, “Steel Panther”, announced their latest tour with a stop in London Ontario, I knew this was a show we could not miss to review. This venue is one of our favorite venues to catch shows at, here in London, ON. The London Music Hall was set to play host to the throwback, 80’s glam rock days. While parking the car nearby, I couldn’t help but notice that there was a lot more neon spandex-wearing men in downtown London than on a normal Monday night.
The night kicked off with a few local acts tearing up the stage and getting the spandex clad fans riled up for the show to start. Toronto rockers, “Diemondz”, got the crowd firing on all cylinders with their metal sound and great stage show. If you can catch them, you should, the put on one heck of a show.
Then it was time! The hair, the make-up, the spandex, and the profanity were about to begin. “Steel Panther”, graced the stage and the place went into overdrive! By far, one of the loudest and craziest fan bases I have ever seen at a show in the London Music Hall.
If you don’t know who Steel Panther is, they are well known in the rock circle for their exaggerated stage show, profane lyrics and the humorous tones to their show. It’s more than just a rock show, it’s a comedy act all wrapped up into one. With audience participation, in the form of screaming, yelling, and throwing of undergarments, it was clear I wasn’t in my normal element of country music in London, ON. With that being said, it’s a show everyone, (well maybe not everyone), should take in once in their life. If you’re looking to catch them, they are going to be at the Sound Academy in Toronto on November, 29th, 2016. Tickets are on sale for that show but get them quick! It’s almost guaranteed to sell out.
