From a press release:

After playing there just last year, glam metal parody band Steel Panther is coming back to the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg on Thursday, July 25 at 8 p.m. as part of their Sunset Strip Live Tour.

Sunset Strip Live is a Steel Panther show that includes some of their biggest original songs, the biggest metal hits from the ’80s, and their trademark comedic delivery into the most high-energy party of your lifetime; their previous Stroudsburg stop included covers of The Kinks, Ratt, Van Halen, Ozzy Osbourne, Bon Jovi, and Def Leppard. Black Fate, a local “old school heavy metal” band, will open the show this time.

Tickets, which are $25 in advance or $28 the day of the show, are on sale now and available through the Sherman Theater box office (524 Main St., Stroudsburg) and online at and Ticketfly. VIP boxes and sky boxes are available for this show and include eight tickets (VIP box) or 12 tickets (sky box) and waitstaff. To purchase box seats, call the theater at 570-420-2808.

Hailing from Los Angeles, California – the epicenter for rock ‘n’ roll in all its debauchery and glamour – Steel Panther was formed in 2000 and is Michael Starr (lead singer), Satchel (guitarist), Lexxi Foxx (bass), and Stix Zadinia (drums). They have established themselves as the premier party band, melding hard rock virtuosity with parody and criminally good looks.

With five full-length albums, a decade of sold-out residencies, worldwide touring, platinum-level YouTube status, and such high-profile television appearances as “Dancing with the Stars,” “Fox NFL Sunday,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Larry King Now,” and some commercials, the band is touring once again after the release of their latest effort, “Lower the Bar.” Released in 2017 to rave reviews, the album bowed at No. 40 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart and garnered their fourth consecutive No. 1 on the Billboard Top Comedy Album chart.

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.”

Steel Panther is currently finishing work on their next album. The band is working with producer Jay Ruston and hopes to have some new material released later this year. They also are hard at work on their popular Steel Panther Television shows on YouTube, “Cineminute” and “Science Panther.” In the meantime, they continue their heavy metal debauchery around the globe.
